Course summary

Overview Begin an exciting journey towards a fulfilling career in international business management. You will spend a year abroad in either study or work placement. You have the option to study at one of our partner universities in Australia, Canada, Europe, New Zealand or the USA. You can opt to study foreign languages and take a one-year paid overseas placement. Our network of academic staff, business coaches, worldwide partner Universities and the Chartered Management Institute (CMI), will support you as you launch your international career. With its focus on innovation, creativity and contemporary issues (such as globalisation, emerging markets, protectionism, demographic changes, more rapid global communications and environmental sustainability), this flexible degree will signal that you are a well-networked, culturally-aware and commercially-focussed graduate. You will be able to demonstrate that you have the knowledge of international business, the intercultural awareness, management capabilities and language skills that employers most value. Our range of fun extra-curricular activities, such as sport clubs, societies, cultural visits and the student social scene further add to your university experience and personal development. If you are unable to undertake the mandatory Third Year Abroad as part of BA (Hons) International Business Management and this course is no longer an option, you may wish to consider BA (Hons) Business Management instead.
