“With an online MSc in International Business my options are not limited as this course allows anyone who studies it to work in career fields such as; Marketing, Import and Export, Finance, Entrepreneurship and Logistics (just to name a few). The University of Birmingham applies a great ‘hands-on’ approach to teaching online - whether through online sessions, via email or even Skype. There are also great networking opportunities which come from studying online - the most effective I believe is through the various group projects. I have been extremely pleased with the University of Birmingham and their course offerings.” Safiya Carroll, Portfolio Enhancer, Barita Investments Limited, Jamaica
