Prepare to be a future leader in an increasingly global business environment by gaining the knowledge, skills and perspective you need to succeed in management. If you want to work for a company in an international market or you want to find out more about how organisations operate on the world stage, this degree course will provide you with the toolkit for your international journey. You will benefit from real-life work experience throughout your studies, and learn from industry speakers, global examples and business simulations. Most of what you study will be anchored to today’s international business world – the top global companies and emerging sectors such as artificial intelligence and financial innovation. Your transformation from student to future business professional will begin from day one. Gain an understanding of the business environment and develop fundamental management skills in marketing, people and organisations, and finance. You will translate this management knowledge to the wider world and better understand the challenging international business environment. Aspects such as globalisation, cultural variation and the challenges of different geographical, political and economic factors are addressed. You have the option to undertake a five-week work placement, or even a year-long placement, and you will carry out an original research project into a subject you select. The Placement Year is an opportunity to work in industry or practice so that you can put everything learnt so far into practice and gain hands-on experience.
Your transformation from new student to future business professional will begin from day one. In your first year you will gain an understanding of the business environment and develop fundamental management skills in marketing, people and organisations, and finance. In year two, you will translate this management knowledge to the wider world and gain a solid understanding of the challenging international business environment. Aspects such as globalisation, cultural variation and the challenges of different geographical, political and economic factors are addressed. You will start to shape your career path by choosing an aspect of international business and get on-the-job experience in a 5 week work placement that suits your personal ambitions. Whether working in the UK, on a supported work placement in China or engaging in community projects in Costa Rica, or Africa students find this aspect particularly rewarding, as do future employers. After your second year, you will have the chance to undertake a year-long placement which really brings your course to life and will enhance your graduate employment prospects. How does a study and work placement at Walt Disney World in the sunshine state sound? That’s what Emma experienced during her time with us and is just one of many great placement opportunities this course provides. You may even have a year studying business and management abroad in Europe, North America, Asia or Australasia. Your final year is even more tailored towards giving you the competitive edge you need to enter the area of business you want. You will carry out an original supervised research project into a subject you select and complete a module designed to maximise individual professional success. Most of what you study will be anchored to today’s international business world – the top global companies and emerging sectors such as artificial intelligence and financial innovation.
A range of assessment methods are used across all modules. Assessment will be a combination of written essay and report assignments, presentations, examinations, group projects and seminar contributions. Individual projects form a major part of the final year degree assessments.
