International Business with a Year Abroad and Integrated Foundation Year

Course summary

The international business landscape is changing faster than ever before. You can become the expert firms, governments, and international institutions desperately need to analyse markets and economies and assess trends and developments.   Joining us, you’ll learn to apply the theory to real case studies and make reasoned judgments based on economic analysis. At the same time, we’ll help you use leading software and techniques for business and economic analysis.  But to really understand what these challenges look like on a global level, we think you should take your learning outside of London. That’s why you’ll spend your third year abroad at one of our international partner universities.   *Lead the way in business   * Our expert teaching team have extensive experience and specialise in a range of areas from economics to analytics. Because of their connections, you’ll get the chance to hear from leaders from organisations such as HSBC, PwC, UBS and many others.       By the time you graduate, you’ll have the skills you need to analyse complex business issues, as well as experience of a different cultural setting. It’s up to you to decide what’s next. Will you be a consultant with global clients? A manager motivating international teams? Or a data scientist finding solutions?  Explore the institutional and social contexts that inform the execution of business.
