International Management (Industry) at Lancaster University - UCAS

Course summary

BSc International Management (Industry) examines in-depth global management practices in a world that has changed radically in the last decade. A new international landscape lies ahead: international tensions and conflicts among the leading economies of the world, climate change and environmental emergencies, major issues of social justice and business ethics, as well as global economic pressures on limited resources of all kinds. All employers are asking management and business schools for two essential things: on the one hand, graduates capable of understanding the multiple dimensions of contemporary management and business and their global connections; on the other, graduates with an understanding of the world in which business takes place, a world characterised by complex economic, political, and cultural processes. Course overview This course offers a unique and genuine interdisciplinary understanding of management, its essentially international nature, and the realities of the world today. Your studies will develop your critical understanding in three fundamental areas:

  • Core areas of management (human resources, marketing or accounting and finance, sustainability, ethics, and technology);
  • Core issues in contemporary international relations and world politics that shape the real world today;
  • Core responsibilities facing global businesses in the coming decades: ecology and the natural environment, sustainability and ethical responsibilities.
You will take modules from both the Management School, and Politics and International Relations - a unique feature of this degree. There are two pathways through the degree: you can choose to focus either on marketing or accounting and finance. You will, therefore, have the opportunity to choose additional modules from one of these disciplines. In your second year, you will deepen and broaden your understanding of management and global business operations today, with modules in management and international organisations, human resource management, and business ethics. These will be complemented with modules in international relations and world politics, security and sustainability, and the politics of development. Your third year consists of a placement in industry that will allow you to apply your knowledge and develop professional skills. This experience also provides valuable insight for your final year academic studies. In your final year, you’ll cover more issues surrounding international human resource management, management and organisations in the digital age, as well as sustainability, together with more optional modules in marketing management or corporate finance (depending on which route you’ve chosen), and international relations such as the Governance of Global Capitalism. You will also synthesise your academic achievements in an individual dissertation, a much-valued addition to your professional resume. This course offers our students an excellent appreciation of the many challenges modern businesses face today, in the real world, and those they will face in the future. Key facts BSc International Management is also offered as a three-year degree. If you are unsuccessful in securing a suitable placement for your third year, you can transfer to the equivalent non-placement degree scheme, finishing your degree after your third year. Course outcomes By the end of your degree, you will have gained a deep understanding and appreciation of how management and business both depend upon and shape the global social and economic system. You will have developed an excellent awareness and knowledge of the fundamental processes of management, from human resources to organisational analysis, from marketing to the role of technology in contemporary organisational systems, as well as of contemporary international affairs and the political environment in which all business processes take place.
