International Business

The programme extends management skills preparing students for the world of work so that they can achieve their potential. The course offers a robust grounding in distinct aspects of management and global business. Alongside lectures and seminars students are offered a portfolio of leading edge opportunities to enhance their career prospects, which depending on electives registered for, may include a study trip, explorations of personal and team-building skills, and the undertaking of a consultancy study, and some competitively allocated student consultancy projects where students will learn �on the job� in real life businesses (while the School is keen to offer the full range of those opportunities in any given year, availability cannot be guaranteed).

Entry requirements

Applicants will need at least a 2nd class honours degree or overseas equivalent qualification in order to apply to study the programmes. Exceptionally, students who have appropriate professional qualifications or relevant work experience may also be considered with a weaker qualification. Anyone applying from a country where English is not the 1st language is required to take an official test of English language obtaining at least IELTS 6.5. For overseas students who do not meet these entry requirements, we offer a Business and Management Pre-Masters programme.
