Course summary

There are many reasons why taking this programme with a Foundation option could be the ideal choice; you may not have the exact subjects or grades at A level to meet the entry requirements, you may have tried other options such as apprenticeship and want to change direction or have been living abroad. Whatever your starting point, studying this programme with a Foundation option offers you a great opportunity to gain both a UK and US degree and start the adventure of a lifetime, studying with us in the world’s top student city. This is what our Foundation option can offer you:

  • Start this programme with lower entry qualifications, see our website for further details
  • A four year, full-time degree programme with an extra summer semester in Year 1, so you can study at your own pace
  • Timetabled English and study skills classes to enhance your knowledge and skills
  • Great student support including a Personal Academic Advisor, with help on housing, health and wellbeing, financial guidance and careers advice from our award-winning Student Affairs team
Are you interested in making an impact in the business world? Gain the knowledge and skills you need to succeed in management in an increasingly global business environment with this programme which will take you from new student to future business leader. The journey begins from day one. As finance, socio-economic factors, politics, geography, language and culture all influence business, you’ll begin the programme with an exploration of how these can help shape business strategy within an international marketplace. The vibrancy of London provides the ideal backdrop to study this subject – it’s the home of big business and entrepreneurial start-ups. In the third and fourth year, you’ll be able to take your pick from topics which particularly appeal to you. Renowned and highly qualified business leaders are invited to speak to our BA International Business students, sharing their experience within the industry, while visits to organisations and events enhance experiential learning. You’ll also be able to tailor your International Business degree by taking a minor from a wide range of other leading academic disciplines. Many of our students gain international industry experience through an accredited internship, which helps shape their education and career choice. You will have the opportunity to develop your entrepreneurial spirit through Matrix, a multi-disciplinary platform for students to seek guidance, test their ideas and develop their curiosity of launching their own business. Matrix has a core team including faculty, students, staff and alumni organising events and workshops for current Richmond students. On completing this programme, students will be able to apply for four exemptions (all certificate level) from The Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA), the world’s largest professional body of management accountants, entering into their Operational Level. Like our other undergraduate programmes at Richmond, this BA is based on the American liberal arts tradition, which helps broaden perspective and develops practical skills which are highly appealing to future employers in a global economy.

Course details

Modules

The interdisciplinary Liberal Arts approach offers not just breadth but also depth of study and encourages students to make sounds judgments and think independently. A Liberal Arts education is one which encourages you to explore a wide range of subjects and programmes. It reaches across disciplines, building connections between different academic areas such as literature, science, mathematics, writing, business and psychology. Upon entry to Richmond University all students study the Liberal Arts Core Curriculum before specialising in their chosen field.
