We live in a world where business operations are becoming increasingly global in scale. National boundaries now matter very little to decisions about where goods are made and services provided. In this course you will learn what this means for today's business world.
The course has economics at its core, covering micro and macroeconomics. However, it is much broader than a standalone economics degree. It analyses the major external factors affecting global business, globalisation, and applied policy.
We have two International Business courses: a BSc and an MA. The main differences between these are at Levels 1 and 2.
The degrees have been designed to provide graduates with the skills they need to launch high-flying executive careers.
Studying for a degree such as international business is a recognised route to a graduate career in business, management, finance and marketing. To help students with their job search, we organise sessions on career prospects where potential employers are invited to talk to students about future opportunities.
