International Business Management

Are you looking to build on your degree-level studies in business in order to gain an extra edge in recruitment / promotion with transnational organisations? This two-year course with study abroad will extend your previous studies while also providing a broader global context.

There's a focus on the global business environment, an emphasis on managing international organisations, and special attention on the cultural challenges of extending operations across multiple countries.

In the second year of this course you'll undertake study in another country. Employers often prefer applicants who have a strong international awareness. Our exchange option will increase your experience and it'll help you stand out from others.

The course attracts students from around the world, creating a global perspective within the classroom. You'll be developed as a leader and manager and there's a requirement for previous study of business or management. If you have a different background you may wish to consider our MSc Business with International Management with Study Abroad.
