Course summary

BSc International Management (Study Abroad) 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 management processes and business decisions, in all types of organisations and markets, have to face these new realities and their impact on societies, economies, and people’s everyday lives. 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 complicated economic, political, and cultural processes. This programme 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, accounting and finance, sustainability, ethics, and technology); core issues in contemporary international relations and world politics that shape the real world today; the core responsibilities facing global businesses in the coming decades: ecology and the natural environment, sustainability and ethical responsibilities. You will take modules from the Management School, as well as from Politics and International Relations – a unique feature of this degree. You will have the opportunity to choose additional modules in either Marketing or Accounting and Finance. 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. 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), as well as 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 programme offers our students an excellent appreciation of the many challenges modern business faces today, in the real world, and those they will face in the future. Lancaster University Management School offers a compelling view of responsible management by placing real people and real-world issues at the heart of our conception of management education for the Twenty-First Century. By the end of your degree, you will have gained a deep understanding and appreciation of the ways in which 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 places. Ultimately, you will have the skills to work within any type of organisation that places emphasis on global connectivity – from multinational corporations to globe-spanning NGOs, or public sector services dealing with foreign or local affairs.
