Course summary

You’re keen to get started in your career, and you want the management skills to do it. Our full-time International Business Management course is the perfect fit. Study in Cambridge and get a degree in just two years. You’ll have the option to learn a foreign language and study abroad for a semester. And when you’re on campus, you’ll learn alongside students and lecturers from around the world. Perfect preparation for a career in international business. In a progressively globalised world, organisations can only successfully operate and compete when they develop and enhance their strategies on issues such as globalisation, intercultural awareness, sustainability and ethics. They need employees with the skills, knowledge and insight to understand these complex issues and how they can be effectively managed in a shifting international environment. Our course will provide you with the background and skills to progress your career in one of these international organisations. As it’s an accelerated course, you’ll undertake an intensive six-week period of study in June-July each year, in addition to regular term-time study. Here at Anglia Ruskin, sustainability is really important to us. And it’s important to businesses, too. Building on employer feedback, successful student-led initiatives, and green audits in businesses – and in partnership with our Global Sustainability Institute – we’ve developed a course that has sustainability at its heart. We’re committed to making sure that our students not only know about sustainability, but know how to apply their knowledge and make a real difference to business practices and communities. As you’d expect from an innovative international business degree, you’ll have the option to study a foreign language. You’ll learn to operate in a multi-cultural context, studying alongside and from students and academics from around the world.
