BA (Hons) International Business Management

 

Overview

Why do economies collapse? Why does the tech sector attract so much capital and talent? How can I manage my enterprise through complex changes and lead it to global opportunities and success? International Business Management is a study of some of the most important issues of our time.

This programme encourages you to pose questions and find answers. Get a practical and relevant university education in management, marketing, finance and international business. Build your confidence and increase your experience in the key competencies needed for any international career.

The first two years can be studied full-time or part-time. For more flexible options students can study this programme in a blended format, which combines tutoring, some weekend study, self and distance learning classes. The final year is organised entirely around evening and weekend classes to allow for flexibility for both full-time students and part-time working students.

This undergraduate programme includes two great qualifications, an HND Business at the end of the second year and the BA (Hons) International Business Management Bachelor’s degree at the end of the third year.
