In an increasingly international world, this course will provide you with the knowledge and skills you need to succeed in today’s global economy. You will gain a strong business education in preparation for a wide range of exciting managerial careers and will have opportunities to study a language, study on an international exchange and take up work experience placements abroad. On this course, you will learn how to develop your personal effectiveness, and how to operate as an internationally aware, focused individual, capable of operating in the international business environment. You will be taught by tutors who are experts in their field and develop the ability to work on your own and with others. By your final year, you will be able to systematically and creatively apply knowledge of theory and practice to resolving international business problems. Through the Study Abroad programme, you could choose to spend your second year studying on an international exchange with one of our global partner institutions in Europe, the US or the rest of the world. You can enhance your career options with a year-long industrial placement giving you the opportunity to apply the skills, knowledge and understanding you have gained in the first two years of the course. You will work with an employer which could be a local, national or international organisation - in recent years, students have worked on placement in the UK with international organisations and worked abroad with foreign based businesses. During this year, you will not pay fees to the University and will earn a wage for the work that you do. There are different entry requirements and course codes for the Professional Experience Year option. This degree is also offered with a Foundation Year.
