Are there any winners in an international trade war? Are large trade deficits a problem? What are the challenges for businesses that wish to start exporting their products? You’ll tackle these questions and more on our exciting ‘top-up’ degree in Global Trade and Business. More and more businesses are part of global value chains, which connect the production and supply of products across countries. Therefore, international trade is a top economic priority for governments, organisations and businesses alike. Exploring the opportunities and challenges this presents, our ’top-up’ degree gets you ‘work ready’, by debating these real world issues. This one-year course, equivalent to the final year of a traditional Bachelor’s degree, is designed for students who have previously studied business and management to ‘Level 5’. You may, for example, have been awarded a Foundation Degree or HND Diploma, or benefit from a combination of academic and professional qualifications and experience. You’ll not only deepen your understanding of the operations, strategy and decision-making processes of global trade and business, but also develop an appreciation of wider social and political issues surrounding business decisions by witnessing those involved first-hand and ‘in situ’ as part of your professional experience. Subject to the availability of funding, you may be able to take part in international study trips. For example, the class of 2022/23 participated in work experience visits to Jaguar Land Rover in the UK and Volkswagen in Germany. These experiences provide a unique opportunity to relate what you have learned in the workplace, experiencing the different aspects of organisational practice, diverse cultures and everyday practicalities that exist. Based in the heart of London’s political, media and financial services, at Westminster Business School, we bring professional practice into the classroom through industry speakers, real-life case studies, problem- and work-based learning. We welcome students from all walks of life from all over the world, representing 169 different nationalities, which will enhance your understanding of cultural diversity and international business awareness.
