Global Business Administration

We have been running this programme continuously in Singapore since 1993. We use fundamentally the same syllabus as the corresponding Birmingham programme and the same team of University of Birmingham academic staff. We are aware of the need for some customisation and use more Asian cases and institutional material than in the home programme. 5 modules are compulsory and you choose 3 electives (under review). More are available if you wish to study part of your programme in the UK.
