In the first two years of all International Business Management degrees, students follow a common programme that provides a strong grounding in the principles of modern business management and also introduces more functional areas of business management including Marketing, Human Resource Management and Organisational Behaviour.

The students are not here just to learn facts and figures. Senior managers everywhere stress that personal skills are as important as education and intellect. Our aim is to help you become the manager of the future and so students are encouraged to develop practical business management and problem solving skills through the team development courses and group projects. We believe that the real basis for business management is experience. We will expose you to theories of business management and case studies of companies, and give you the opportunity to work on specific business management problems.

In the third and fourth years of the Heriot-Watt programme in International Business Management, students choose from a broad range of specialist subjects. This allows you to tailor your degree to meet your career needs and aspirations.
