How you learn All our courses are designed around a set of key principles based on engaging you with the world, collaborating with others, challenging you to think in new ways, and providing you with a supportive environment in which you can thrive. Based in the Sheffield Business School, you’ll join a global community where business leaders, researchers and 7,000 business students all come together to solve problems and make things better. Expert tutors bring current research into their modules by including insights from their own research, and drawing on cutting-edge knowledge from the wider international business field. By its very nature the course has a truly international perspective across all levels. Key Themes The themes and learning materials on the course are selected to represent a diversity of global contexts and perspectives. Informed by contemporary academic research in international business, you’ll focus on the applied and practical issues organisations face, including the digital solutions they use. You’ll collaborate with business organisations and industry practitioners, equipping you with the skills you’ll need in the workplace. On several key modules, you’ll have opportunities to tailor your learning experience, including the flexibility to choose assessment tasks that align with your preferences and goals. Applied learning We think the best way to learn something is to do it in the real world. This guides everything we do at Sheffield Business School – and is an ethos we share with our European partners. Placements You’ll undertake an internship in the UK before your fourth year of study. This gives you valuable work experience to prepare you for your future career – and allows you to graduate with an Applied Professional Diploma to add to your CV. You’ll also have opportunities to undertake shorter periods of work experience. Live Projects Some modules include applied project work, where you’ll work with external clients, organisations, business practitioners and other partners. You’ll also develop your entrepreneurial awareness as part of the course. This includes focusing on practical issues such as networking, business modelling and financing – as well as commercialising entrepreneurial ideas. These skills are supported by a live consultancy project, where you’ll liaise with a client company and deliver a group project to their brief. Networking Opportunities You can connect with employers through Careers Days and guest lectures – gaining valuable insights into the challenges that real-world businesses are facing. You may also be able to network with previous graduates who share their experiences while empathising with the stage you’re at in your career. We’ll also encourage you to take part in competitions, with prizes available for strong projects and inspirational students.
