Why this programme?
If you want to travel and enjoy international trade, working with different cultures or business management from SME to corporate multi-national, this programme is for you.
It is suitable for recent graduates and early stage professionals from any background to help boost a career in business and management in today’s globalized commercial world.
The world’s economy is increasingly global. As a result, demand continues to grow for individuals who understand the global context of business. By specialising in international business, you are putting yourself in a more powerful, marketable position because a broad knowledge of the practice of business around the world is highly relevant, becoming increasingly valuable to employers.
This programme helps you connect with a deeper, more focused set of business skills, with an international orientation for an overview of how global organisations work. It is designed to provide an in-depth understanding of global practices across the spectrum of business fields in preparation for a career in global management.
Combining academic rigour with real life examples and activities designed to develop practical skills, topics cover a range of business fields, from finance and marketing to management and accounting. You will be challenged to explore these fields within an international context to understand how globalization impacts the business community, locally, nationally and internationally.
