Gain a different perspective on the study of international business by drawing upon facets of globalisation. Consequently, you are able to build essential knowledge and skills for a career in business management – in the UK or internationally – together with an understanding of the process of globalisation. The first year sets the context in which businesses operate, introducing global issues alongside fundamental business skills. The second and third years develop global and international analysis and a choice of options allows for specialisation in areas such as politics, finance, HRM or economics. Other options include e-business, business law and the environment.
An understanding of the globalisation process can help managers to plan more strategically and effectively and is essential for business survival. At no time has this been more obvious than during the 'credit crunch' and the global economic downturn.
