Course summary

The BSc (Hons) International Business pathway is delivered by Bayes Business School (formerly Cass), one of Europe’s leading business schools. Part of City, University of London, Bayes is ranked amongst the top 6 business schools in the UK* and 4th best in London for Business and Management Studies**. The International Business BSc (Hons) pathway enables students to gain an understanding of the various elements of running a business and managing an organisation on an international level. This degree should appeal particularly to you if you expect to work in multinational businesses or in other areas where contemporary issues affect the way business takes place globally. You should be prepared to consider the impact of management concepts in different parts of the world and to apply these to practical examples. As part of this degree you must spend some time at one of our overseas partners and use this experience to contribute to your understanding of management concepts. You can choose between the following two study abroad options:

  • Spend the first term of your second year studying equivalent modules at a partner university abroad. This option allows you to complete your degree in three years. (You must meet a certain grade criterion during your first year to be able to take part in the replacement term abroad programme).
  • Spend a sandwich year abroad at one of our partner universities abroad in between your second and final year of study. This option extends the degree to four years.
You will be able to reflect on this international experience within your final-year project. You will discuss issues related to the global economy, and will be encouraged to consider the particular impact of management concepts in different parts of the world. At Bayes we value sustainable, ethical business and we embed it into our curriculum. That's why we are also a member of the United Nation’s Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) initiative, meaning we are well placed to train the next generation of business leaders capable of managing the complex demands faced by business and society in the 21st century. Our entire suite of undergraduate business management programmes have been created to ensure ethical, social, environmental, cultural, and economic considerations are central to your preparation as future leaders in business. All Bayes undergraduate students will also choose from a range of professional experience modules so that when you graduate you are equipped with the knowledge and experience to make you an attractive candidate to employers. You will also take a career-focused module suitable for your chosen course to help you prepare for entering the job market. There are six BSc Business Management degree pathways taught at Bayes: BSc Business Management, BSc Business with Finance, BSc Business with Marketing, BSc Business Management with Social Purpose, BSc Business Management, Digital Innovation and Entrepreneurship and BSc International Business. At any time during the first-one-and-a-half years of the degree, students can switch to a different pathway, subject to the availability of places. Some restrictions may apply if the student is spending part of the second year on a study abroad scheme. *Financial Times European Business School Ranking 2022 **Complete University Guide 2023
