International Business Management is a specialist degree aimed at students who wish to develop their understanding of Business Management within an international context.
The course has a compulsory semester overseas enabling you to experience business in a truly international setting.
The first year of the course will be spent exploring generic business topics such as marketing, economics, finance and management. In addition you will study a contextualised skills module and one or two new modern foreign languages, with the option to take up a third in year 2, if you wish. You can choose from Chinese (Mandarin), French, German, Italian, Japanese or Spanish. (Note that you will not be able to select a language, for which you already have competence at A level standard, or beyond.)
The first half of Year 2 will investigate business ethics which will be studied along with your choice of business options. Semester 2 will be spent at one of our overseas partners studying a variety of business subjects. It is hoped you will fully immerse in the overseas course and not only learn about the subject but develop a good understanding of another culture. Cultural awareness is a sought after skill by many employers.
There is also an option to gain valuable work experience in a paid placement year taken between Years 2 and 3.
In your final year you will be able to apply learning from your overseas experience.
This degree in International Business Management is designed to underpin a successful career in a business operating in a global context.
The knowledge and skills developed on the course will also be useful in a ‘home’ based business as well as with organisations operating further afield.
