Our International Business degree equips you to respond to the challenges and opportunities faced by a global business while developing your understanding in all areas of enterprise such as marketing, finance, and management. This course is internationally focused by design. You will develop a broad understanding of business in a global context through modules that teach everything from international trade and finance, to international business in a digital economy, alongside introductory modules in finance, operations, and other essential business functions plus flexible options in more specialised areas of business. You’ll also have the option to take language modules that will support you if you decide to pursue the popular Year Abroad.
