Course Details

BSc (Hons) International Business Management

This course is designed for students looking to pursue a career in international business, with an interest in developing a knowledge and understanding of key aspects of business management.

We’ve developed this course so that you spend your first year covering the essential areas of business management. You’ll then study a management discipline in your second year that you’ve developed an interest in during your first year in greater depth. As you move into your third year you’ll be able to put into practice what you’ve learnt while you work internationally at one of our partner institutions. Our mission is to ensure that you’ll have a variety of career options available to you within international business management when you finish the course. As a result of your international work experience, you’ll be able to demonstrate both your knowledge and experience – a great addition to your CV and applications.

Foundation Year

You can also choose to take a Foundation Year before you start your degree. This introductory year focuses on developing an understanding of the business sector and the key skills required to undertake the three year degree. The Foundation Year involves studying six modules to develop necessary skills and introduce you to key concepts to enable progression onto our three year Business degrees.

Entry requirements for the Foundation Year are different than for our three year degrees. For full details, check our Entry Requirements page.
