This intensive top-up programme is specifically designed to help learners build on their existing experience and qualifications, turning them into a full UK honours degree in just one year. You’ll strengthen the knowledge you’ve gained from work in the industry or earlier studies and have the chance to improve your understanding of international business and global commerce. Real industry insight is at the heart of Southampton Solent University’s international management top-up programme. The course team maintain strong relationships with industry professionals, which have previously lead to unique guest lectures, live assessment briefs, and work experience placements for business students. Students will complete a consultancy pitch and a project report instead of a dissertation. The pitch will give students valuable transferable skills and the chance to work with local employers on a live client brief. The curriculum gives students the opportunity to stay up to date with current issues and relate them back to established academic theory. Think your business idea could be the next big thing?
