Program description

BSc (Hons) International Business Management with Foundation Year

Once you've completed your Foundation Year, you'll then join the honours degree and spend the first year covering all aspects of international business management to find out where your passions and talents lie. From year two, you can continue on a general International Business Management pathway or choose one of the following:

  • BSc (Hons) International Business Management (Business Technology)
  • BSc (Hons) International Business Management (Economics)
  • BSc (Hons) International Business Management (Finance)
  • BSc (Hons) International Business Management (International Relations)
  • BSc (Hons) International Business Management (Supply Chain and Logistics)

In the second year, you can study abroad for a semester and gain valuable experience of another culture and how business operates in another country

Our Bloomberg Financial Markets Lab puts a wealth of international business data at your fingertips and gives you an in-depth understanding of economies across the world

This degree is accredited by both the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) and the Chartered Management Institute (CMI), and these approvals can benefit your career in several ways.

Once you've completed your Foundation Year, all students take the same core modules in the first year to gain an important foundation in all aspects of international business management, including micro and macro economics, quantitative analysis, global business and sustainability, human resources, finance and business performance.

After that you can choose one of our specialist pathways or continue on a general International Business Management route. If you choose a specialist pathway, around a third of your modules in years two and three will be dedicated to your chosen subject.

Whichever pathway you choose, you won't be closing any doors; you will still gain a solid grounding in all of the key areas, such as economics, data analysis, sustainability, project management, finance and business strategy.
