Globalisation of the world economy, increases in world trade, the growth of the European Union and industrialisation of China, India and Russia all mean that there is increasing demand for graduates who can operate in international context. You will develop a sound understanding of business and management and how to operate in a cross-cultural context as well as the ability to respond to the challenges of globalisation.


International business is a field that is increasingly gaining interest for undergraduate study. The increasing globalisation of the world economy, increases in world trade, the accession of many eastern European countries to the European Union coupled with dramatic growth in the industrialisation of China, India and Russia all mean that there is increasing demand for graduates who can operate in global and increasingly diverse multi-cultural contexts. 

The programme will produce graduates that have a good understanding of business and management in an international context. Organisations increasingly have to respond to the challenges of globalisation and operate in a largely global market place and economy, where challenges can come from overseas competitors rather than local corporations. Graduates from this programme with a good knowledge of international business will be in a competitive position in the graduate employment market.
