Looking for a truly global career? Our International Business course will prepare you to become an effective senior leader in organisations all over the world.

In a global environment that’s more technologically, politically and socially connected than ever before, business professionals need to understand the global design and organisation of business work.

This specialist degree will prepare you for a thriving business career that crosses international boundaries. You’ll develop your understanding of international business and marketing theories and how these apply to the operations of global companies.

You can shape your studies to suit your career aspirations by taking on optional modules in accounting, finance, human resources, marketing, politics, sales, tourism or trade. There are also opportunities to examine differing cultural values and learn a foreign language, which can open doors to fantastic careers overseas.

Module Overview

Course Delivery

Following the pandemic, we have found that some courses benefit from a blended learning and teaching approach. Therefore, the majority of your teaching will be face-to-face on campus, with some online teaching where we have learnt it works best.


Every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of our published course information. However, our programmes are subject to ongoing review and development. Changing circumstances may cause alteration to, or the cancellation of, courses. Changes may be necessary to comply with the requirements of accrediting bodies or revisions to subject benchmarks statements. As well as to keep courses updated and contemporary, or as a result of student feedback. We reserve the right to make variations if we consider such action to be necessary or in the best interests of students.
