Real industry insight is at the heart of Southampton Solent Universityâ??s international business management programme. The course team maintain strong relationships with industry professionals, which have previously lead to unique guest lectures, live assessment briefs, and work experience placements for business students. Students are also guided as they write a dissertation, carrying out in-depth research into a relevant business area. Students use the analytics skills learnt throughout the course to inform this research, and are encouraged to focus on an area that they think they might like to work in after graduation.
