Our International Business and Management course will provide you with a broad, critical and integrative study of the business processes, activities and challenges involved in managing operations in an international and global context. International business is the study of transactions taking place across national borders for the purpose of satisfying the needs of individuals and organisations; either for products or services. Our International Business and Management degree sets the broad management disciplines within an international setting, in contrast to many other international business degrees that focus mainly on economics. This will help you to develop transferable skills that are adaptable across careers and industries, such as critical thinking and making informed decisions. Our four year programmes with placements offer you a valuable opportunity to experience first-hand how the concepts you study can be applied in practice. Placements can raise students’ commercial awareness, develop their skill sets, and improve their employability and networking skills. The experience will be assessed through a final year module after your placement year. This will develop your ability to reflect on professional experiences and recognise the impact on your career development. Our study abroad year allows you to learn in one of over 20 partner institutions, ranging from Canada, the USA, Holland, France, Spain, Sweden, India, Oman and more. You don’t have to know another language as lessons will be taught in English. Studying abroad gives you a chance to broaden your horizons and enhance your career prospects by immersing in a different culture. Managers and business owners in the 21st century now operate in an increasingly complex and dynamic international environment, and all business activities, supply chains, strategies, ethics and structures have strong international elements, with organisations trading across borders now to an ever-increasing extent. Industry and commerce need people who can take advantage of the opportunities offered by globalisation as well as understanding the problems it can bring. There is a growing demand for managers who have a global perspective, and this course will equip you with a number of skills that will make you attractive to a range of employers, particularly multinational enterprises. Throughout this course, we will equip you with the latest business thinking, techniques and tools, enabling you to function effectively in international business. Your learning will focus on the driving forces of globalisation and the impact of trading across borders. You will develop a deeper understanding of how businesses operate in other countries and our lecturers will outline key strategies to adopt, and those to avoid, when doing business internationally.
