About the course

This course is for people who want to study business in an international context and are considering a future career in international business and management. You'll study under leading experts in our state-of-the-art business school, which has international accreditation from AACSB (held by fewer than 5% of business programmes worldwide). You'll be challenged to think outside of your comfort zone to help you develop the skills to make the best business decisions. You can choose boost your employability further and spend a full academic year at one of our partner universities overseas, or spend a year working in industry. 

For millions of managers, being aware of and able to work with international business factors is more important than ever. Managers must deal with different national business practices, cultural changes and language needs. They must also appreciate how areas of businesses – such as finance, marketing, HRM, and logistics – work across and between national borders, without losing sight of the big picture. You'll learn how and why international businesses works, explore international transactions and appreciate the pressures of working in different environments.
