OVERVIEW The digital era has opened up a world of business opportunities. You no longer need to be part of a multinational corporation to operate on a global scale. Studying international business is the ideal way to get ahead in this exciting and fast-paced environment. Events such as Brexit are shaping the current business environment. Understanding subjects such as foreign direct investment and international trade agreements is essential to stay ahead. When you progress onto BA (Hons) International Business Management you’ll learn all this and more. You’ll graduate with the skills and knowledge you need to work across countries and cultures. This foundation course will prepare you for your degree and is ideal if you don’t have the usual qualifications expected for a full degree. It will not only prepare you for studying at university but will also ensure you have the basic knowledge you need for your degree in international business. Once you complete your foundation year, you’ll go straight into your full degree course. FEATURES AND BENEFITS
