STUDY MANAGEMENT IN THE UK

Across The Pond partners with some of the top UK universities for business, across a variety of general and specialized disciplines. The UK has long been a major contributor to industry, and students who study in the UK benefit from intensive learning, opportunities to find work placements, and a concentration on both academic skill and employability.

BENEFITS OF STUDYING BUSINESS IN THE UK Shorter courses: Most Master’s programs are only one year long, and most undergraduate programs are only three years long. That said, an undergraduate student may choose to pursue a longer course with a placement or study abroad year. Focus: UK universities do not require general education courses; students will be focusing on business from Day 1!

Either way, UK universities encourage students to be prepared for the workforce upon graduation. HOW CAN ACROSS THE POND HELP? ... [-]
