The first three months of this course will lay the foundations so as you can fully understand how to write academically, extract valuable information from your reading, critically evaluate that information and present it professionally.
Expanding your knowledge and understanding of the theories that inform contemporary international business practice, this gives a base of learning in the fundamental areas of strategy and management in a globalised business environment. Once the basics are in place you will explore areas around decision making, trade and enterprise, while selecting from a number of modules that allow you to purse knowledge in areas you feel are most appropriate to your interests and career aspirations. The aim of the learning is for you to gain the necessary skills to enable you to manage people and organisational activities in dynamic environments and manage products and services within international markets. You will end the course by utilising the knowledge and skills you have learnt to shape and complete your own international management project.
You can find more information about this course in the programme specification. Optional modules are not offered on every course. If we have insufficient numbers of students interested in an optional module, or there are staffing changes which affect the teaching, it may not be offered. If an optional module will not run, we will advise you after the module selection period when numbers are confirmed, or at the earliest time that the programme team make the decision not to run the module, and help you choose an alternative module.
