Designed for graduates who want to make the transition into business, this course focuses on all aspects of international business.
You will study subjects in managerial economics; managing people and businesses; financial strategy and creative problem solving and will analyse the changing international business environment in real depth.
You will be able to tailor your course with a variety of modules enabling you to focus on your career aspirations. In addition, you will be provided with a rigorous grounding in research methods and will undertake a dissertation allowing you to utilise the knowledge and understanding you have gained and use this as a springboard to your career.
Unique to the Business School, this course takes advantage of the University's international operations and is also taught at the Business Schools in China and Malaysia. This provides you with the opportunity to spend the entire second-semester completing core and optional modules at either campus while experiencing life in China or Malaysia.
You will be taught by staff with international reputations for excellence in research, particularly on emerging markets, and guest lecturers who are successful entrepreneurs and have international experience in doing business in challenging cultural environments.
