About This Course Explore and understand the challenging and interesting world of managing business in the current dynamic and highly competitive global environment. Discover the constantly evolving nature of international business, and how it shapes the management and operations of business across cultures, geographies and institutions. This degree, offered by Norwich Business School (NBS) in the Social Sciences Faculty at UEA, will prepare you for a range of careers that involve analysing, managing and shaping global strategies of firms. These include roles pertaining to international market development and operations, global supply chains, cross-cultural management, global consulting, and general management. This course also prepares you for starting and/or expanding your own business outside the home market. You don’t need to have studied business or economics, you just need to have a flair for business, an inquisitive mind, a global outlook, and be willing to go the extra mile to pursue your goals. Overview On this course you will gain a vital understanding of the inherent complexities involved with managing business in an international context. This course will primarily enable you to compare and contrast business environments across the globe, encompassing both developed and emerging markets. You will develop a good understanding of the challenges and opportunities that exist in different regions of the world, and will become adept at critiquing the global strategies of firms. You will learn to assess market potential and risks in different markets, recommend market entry strategies for firms willing to explore new international markets, manage a culturally diverse work force, and manage globally dispersed supply chains and operations. You will also be able to better appreciate the role of international trade, trading blocs, trade agreements and industrial clusters on global operations of firms. This course will also help you develop a range of analytical, critical and other employability skills that employers value and seek. As part of this course, you will take core modules that help establish a strong foundation in the theories and concepts underpinning international business and management.
