Our International Business BSc will provide you with the skills and experience to work in an international business. You’ll graduate a confident, independent thinker, with the skills to adapt rapidly to change, and detailed knowledge of international business and cross-cultural management.
This degree will give you in-depth knowledge of organisations and their environments, including their relationships to society. Specialising in international business, you will focus on the ways businesses operate differently in home and overseas markets.
Developing an understanding of areas such as managing people, operations, logistics, marketing and finance, you will also learn about what businesses need to do to operate ethically and effectively in a culturally diverse environment.
In readiness for your future career, you will acquire key attributes employers value, such as commercial acumen, self-reflection and emotional intelligence, alongside skills in research, numeracy, project management and leadership.
You will finish the course confident in your personal values, with the knowledge and experience to solve business problems ethically, and an ongoing passion for personal and professional development.
