If you aspire a career in international business management and you wish to develop the skills and knowledge needed to manage effectively in today’s competitive global multi-cultural workplace, this course is for you
The course embodies the principles of your employability and career development through its practical application of relevant academic concepts and theories to the international workplace. All subjects studied on the programme are relevant to the world of work, across specialist disciplines and sectors. The skills developed to achieve academic success are also those required by international employers and for study at higher levels. The flexibility of the programme allows you opportunities to specialise or to maintain your general studies to keep your options open depending on the trends in the job market.
The course adopts a modular approach and requires students to study modules equivalent to 120 credits per year with a variety of core and elective options at different stages of student progression.
Year 1 provides a generic foundation to the key disciplines of business and management and personal skill development. There is a community engagement project component designed to familiarise students with the application of key concepts in a practical workplace setting. All modules are compulsory.
Year 2 builds on the above and develops knowledge of the international business sphere in a variety of disciplines such as finance, marketing and HR.
Year 3 develops this further through greater analysis and practical application by studying strategy, cultural factors, and leadership and management issues in a global context. There is also the opportunity to choose from a range of options which complement the core modules. Students will also complete an extended organisational consultancy project on a relevant negotiated international theme designed to provide practical advice to an organisation in terms of how to improve in the international arena.
