Studying international business provides you with the theoretical knowledge, practical understanding and skills required to pursue a variety of careers in international business or management in both large and small organisations. Our large and diverse teaching team combines practical industry experience and academic research expertise. This enables us to offer a course that blends real-world understanding and relevance with advanced subject knowledge and a truly international perspective. You develop specialist expertise by studying key international business topics such as • globalisation • multinational enterprises • cross-cultural management • international entrepreneurship • international strategy • global supply chains. You also study more general areas of business, such as marketing, finance and organisational behaviour, and you have the option to study a foreign language. As well as developing your international business expertise, you gain and enhance the key skills that are valued by employers, such as • research • analysis • critical thinking • report writing • team-working • delivering presentations. You apply your knowledge and skills through a real-life business consultancy project during your final year. Work placements in the UK and overseas In year three, you have the opportunity to apply the skills you’ve gained by taking a one-year paid work placement. This is a great way to improve your industry knowledge with real insight and experience. It also enables you to build an eye-catching CV to impress future employers, and many students find jobs with their placement companies after graduating. Due to our strong relationships with regional, national and international employers, we can help you to secure a great placement opportunity and support you while you are there. Salaries of up to £22,000 are possible. If you study abroad, or do your work placement, in another European country there may be funding available through the Erasmus programme.
