The BSc International Business Management degree programme will develop your intellectual, analytical, critical and employability skills necessary to succeed as managers and leaders in careers across different sectors.
Our Department of Management, part of the School of Economics, Finance and Management, is small enough to be friendly and offer strong student support yet large enough to provide an international experience. One third of our students come from outside the EU, and we have strong links with international partner institutions such as Copenhagen Business School.
Our management courses take a social science approach, examining the behaviour of individuals and organisations in their full context. Common areas of study in the first year of each of our management courses give you the option to transfer between degrees before the second year as your interests develop.
Our subjects address both theoretical and empirical aspects, our lecturing team comprises leading researchers and specialist teaching staff. Your contact time will be balanced between lectures and small-group tutorials.
In 2014 (the most recent graduation cohort at the time of writing), 28% of our students graduated with first-class honours, and a further 56% earned a 2.1.

In terms of personal development, you will learn how to structure arguments and develop strategies. You will work in teams and give presentations to small groups.
If you are scientifically minded and able to communicate ideas clearly, you will enjoy the balanced approach we take in our courses, which develop the quantitative and discursive abilities which are so valued by employers. You will also enjoy studying management with us if you like a balance of approaches in your learning.
