Course summary

This course provides you with insight into new venture creation and growth, as well as the internationalism of business. We equip you with business knowledge and develop your practical skills through a combination of entrepreneurial theory, group work, business simulation games and interactive projects. Upon graduation, you may decide to use what you have learnt to launch your own business. You explore topics high on the agenda of international businesses, governments, policy-makers, researchers, educators and wider communities. For example: business start-up and growth; strategic entrepreneurship; the international business environment; international business strategy; innovation; international trade; economics; technology and international human resource management. Essex Business School, where this course is taught, is the largest department at the University of Essex and is ranked in the top 25 in the UK for research excellence (REF, 2014). This ensures our teaching is always up-to-date with current and emerging business trends. You can enhance your career potential with a placement year. You can gain valuable work experience for one year with an external business, giving you a competitive edge in the graduate job market and providing you with key contacts within the industry. You won’t pay tuition fees whilst you’re on placement. The Essex Business School Placements Manager can offer bespoke support throughout the process, but it is your responsibility to secure your own role. In recent years, our students have gained placements with organisations such as BMW, Samsung and Cummins. Essex is one of just three UK universities to have Q-Step Affiliate status, including for this course. This means we can provide work placement bursaries to develop your numerical and quantitative skills and offer the chance to follow a specialised degree path in Applied Quantitative Methods. These are evidenced on your degree transcript, to help give you an advantage in the graduate.
