Stage 1 Your first year is a compulsory introductory year, designed to provide you with a strong foundational understanding of key concepts and ideas in business, including the basics of accounting, management, and marketing. It will give you an insight into key areas that will support a career in business such as problem-solving, critical thinking, and theorising. Stage 2 Your second year allows you to develop your ability to think critically about the global context of business with greater emphasis on emerging markets and international trade. You’ll learn about operations management, understand international finance, and expand your awareness of the challenges that businesses face around making ethical and sustainable decisions. Stage 3 Your final year has a greater focus on capstone modules that look at the strategic side of international business and more closely examine our commercial relationship with Europe. You’ll also choose from a range of optional modules that may include more specialised areas relating to your course like international marketing and cross-cultural management, or more general areas, including diversity in organisations. Equally, you’ll have the option to undertake an international business project and develop your skills of working independently.
