Course description

Our International Business and Management degree sets the broad management disciplines within an international setting, in contrast to many other international business degrees that focus mainly on economics. This will help you to develop transferable skills that are adaptable across careers and industries, such as critical thinking and making informed decisions. Our degrees in Business and Management Studies, Human Resource Management, International Business and Management, and Marketing all share the same modules in first year. This means students gain a foundation of essential business knowledge from a leading business school. It also allows students to transfer to one of the four in the second year if they discover a new passion. We are one of only nine UK Universities to have international membership of the International Student Exchange Programs (ISEP), giving our students links to 280 universities in 41 worldwide destinations. In our four year programmes our students have the opportunity to spend a year on placement in industry during their third year of their course. These are real paid jobs. The Faculty of Management and Law has an excellent network of organisations that offer placements including IBM, Vauxhall, NHS, GE Money, Pace, Enterprise Rent A Car, Cummins and Peugeot. Together we ensure your placement is appropriately challenging and that you can make a real and positive impact on the business. Our students study alongside leading business professionals and benefit from networking with 30, 000 high calibre alumni worldwide.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
Over 13,500 degrees in business studies were awarded in 2012, and for a long time this was the most popular degree subject of all - one in 23 grads study a business studies degree. Numbers are still growing, but it dropped down to number three in the table this year. Because so many graduates get business studies degrees, you can find them everywhere in the economy, and very few jobs are completely out of reach for a good business studies graduate. They are most likely to go into jobs in finance, management or marketing, so the stats have been hit slightly because the finance industry hasn’t been in the best of health in the economic downturn. But thousands of graduates from this subject go into professional jobs every year, and average starting salaries are very slightly above the average for all subjects. Graduates with good degree grades in business studies are much more likely to get good jobs, so don’t be complacent, and keep a close eye on your grades.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
Management degrees are a popular choice, with more than 6,000 graduates in 2012. It's not a surprise to hear that a lot of graduates from the subject went into management, and remember that, for this degree, a lot of the jobs are in London. But management graduates tried their hands at all sorts of different jobs last year – not just those within the finance industry, but also community work, IT, marketing and PR and even surveying. This is a flexible degree that can fit graduates for all sorts of work.
