Business Administration (International)

The course is for those students who wish to develop their strengths and career opportunities in an international context. Consequently, to provide exposure to international business, this award includes a mandatory 1 week overseas residential study trip, in addition to the 1 week UK residential off-campus trip. The cost associated with these 2 study trips are covered by the course fees. In recent years, the overseas residential has been to Prague, Czech Republic, to explore the turbulent business environment with the full spectrum of global business.
