OVERVIEW Political and economic developments such as Brexit mean that international trade agreements, foreign direct investment and the attractiveness of where a company does business and accesses talent are more important than ever. In the digital age, almost every business operates on the world stage and supplies to multiple countries. To compete in this hugely competitive global arena, it’s vital they have people who understand the nuances, challenges and opportunities of operating overseas. Exploring enterprise, entrepreneurship and emerging markets We’ll help you gain specialist knowledge in managing people of different cultures and backgrounds, and the political and governing structures of different markets that influence how businesses operate. You’ll also develop the cross-cultural management skills you need to build international business relationships in often volatile political, cultural and economic environments. We offer four-year routes where you can spend your third year on placement or study abroad at one of our overseas partner universities. Past students have worked for Johnson and Johnson in Tokyo, Hellman Worldwide Logistics in the USA and Warner Bros in London. Choose a placement or study abroad The course offers real flexibility as you will enrol on the three-year course and then decide if a placement or overseas study is right for you once you have started your studies.
