BA (Hons) International Business2020-09-22T15:13:00+00:00

Business is becoming truly global. The internet and instant communications mean that even small businesses can now reach an international market. To succeed in this interconnected world, you need to understand the global factors driving business today. This course explores international business and the cultural differences and diversities that it has to offer.

Go global and prepare yourself for a career in international business through this specialist degree which combines the theoretical tools and analytical skills required by successful international companies with a worldwide perspective.

The course will equip you with the knowledge, understanding and academic skills to pursue a career in international business, or continue to postgraduate study. You will also develop the specialist knowledge, skills and capabilities you require to respond proactively and creatively to contemporary business issues and the challenges of the global business environment.

Why should I choose this course?

The course is designed to equip you with a broad overview of how the commercial world operates. We aim to provide you with a detailed understanding of how businesses develop successful strategies through relevant analytical and evaluation techniques. You’ll receive a solid introduction to international business, entrepreneurship, strategic management and environmental management to help give you a firm understanding that can be applied in any sector or industry.

You’ll also look at everything from marketing and finance through to operations and information systems. We’ll also study how companies operate, looking at both small businesses and large companies.

Factors like transformational technology and globalisation mean businesses have to constantly change and adapt so they’re looking for people with the right mix of talents who can solve problems and have ideas. Often these ideas can lead on to the development of new products and services that can contribute to the future prosperity of a company.

That’s why we’ll give you the chance to pick up some very desirable skills including analysis and evaluation techniques, how to think creatively and logical decision making. They’re all important skills that can be used in any size of business and in any sector.

Placement Year
On this course, you can do an optional work placement year between your 2nd and 3rd years to get valuable experience working in industry. We’ll help you secure a work placement that fits your situation and ambitions. You’ll get mentoring and support throughout the year.

Employability

A degree in international business prepares you for a global culturally diverse career, with opportunities spanning sectors and industries. Employers typically expect graduates to have experience of working in a business environment, so it’s a good idea to undertake some relevant experience before you graduate.

Career Progression

There are a number of routes you can take after university – and everyone’s journey will be different. You could search for a graduate job, enrol on a postgraduate course or set up your own business.

If being in charge of schemes, resources and people motivates you, and you can work under pressure to tight deadlines, a career as a project manager may suit you.

If you enjoy evaluating and analysing data, creating solutions, working with a variety of people and have a good grasp of information technology, a career as a business analyst could be for you.

A genuine interest in supporting businesses and the ability to use your own experiences across a range of specialisms is more important than a specific degree subject.

If you’re motivated, enjoy problem solving and have an interest in helping organisations to operate better, then management consultancy is the career for you.

Sales executives help to drive a business forward by selling its products or services to customers.

To succeed as a corporate investment banker, you’ll need a keen financial mind as well as an understanding of how money is made and invested.

Marketing executives drive profit and promote products and services through coordinated marketing campaigns.

Requiring knowledge of business, marketing, data analysis and technology, plus excellent communication and organisational skill, product management is rewarding yet challenging work.

If you’re resilient, good with numbers and enjoy negotiating and communicating, a career as a purchasing manager could be for you.

Further Study

Some roles will require further study, whether it’s to gain membership to a professional body, further your knowledge in a specific area of business, or even branch out into a different field.

And while postgraduate study (e.g. a Master’s) and MBAs are a common choice, many business graduates will find that professional qualifications are a great way to stand out. Not only do they provide vital training and knowledge, but they’re also recognised by employers worldwide.

Popular professional bodies include:

  • Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA)
