The BSc (Hons) International Business pathway is delivered by Bayes Business School (formerly Cass), one of Europe’s leading business schools. Part of City, University of London, Bayes is ranked amongst the top 6 business schools in the UK*. The International Business BSc (Hons) pathway enables students to gain an understanding of the various elements of running a business and managing an organisation on an international level. This degree should appeal particularly to you if you expect to work in multinational businesses or in other areas where contemporary issues affect the way business takes place globally. You should be prepared to consider the different impact of management concepts in different parts of the world and to apply these to practical examples. You will develop a broad understanding of business within an international context. As part of this degree you must spend some time at one of our overseas partners and use this experience to contribute to your understanding of management concepts. You can choose between the following two study abroad options:
- Spend the first term of your second year studying equivalent modules at a partner university abroad. This option allows you to complete your degree in three years. (You must meet a certain grade criterion during your first year to be able to take part in the replacement term abroad programme).
- Spend a sandwich year abroad at one of our partner universities abroad in between your second and final year of study. This option extends the degree to four years.
- You will be able to reflect on this international experience within your final-year project. You will discuss issues related to the global economy, and will be encouraged to consider the particular impact of management concepts in different parts of the world.
