Course summary

Course Details

We live in a global business world. The globalisation of trade, transatlantic trade agreements and the UK's Brexit decision are factors which continue to reshape the economic landscape. By studying this course, you will develop valuable knowledge of the regulations and processes governing international trade, and you will have the opportunity to specialise in international finance or global marketing. If you choose to take up the option of a placement year or study abroad, you will hone your problem-solving abilities and gain real-world experience, boosting your employability.

This course offers the opportunity to take a 'sandwich' year - a year of paid employment in industry which will build your skills and experience. This is usually taken between the second and third year of your degree, typically making your course four years in total. Students who choose the sandwich route find it helps with both their studies and getting a job after graduation. It can build your confidence, contacts, and of course your CV. Leeds Beckett advertise lots of placement opportunities and provide support in helping you find the right placement for you.

Course Benefits

You are strongly encouraged to spend a year or a semester studying abroad. This will give you a global perspective and encourage you to develop and operate confidently outside your home country. We have a number of partnerships with high ranking institutions in countries such as Australia, France and Cyprus, with whom teaching is delivered in the English language.

We have a dedicated employability and placements office to support you and provide you with access to a wide range of vacancies from local, national and international employers. Pre-placement guidance and seminars are available on topics such as CV and letter writing, how to succeed at interview, assessment centres and psychometric tests.

We're dedicated to supporting your professional development - that's why we offer a guest lecture programme. Past speakers include the CEO of the London Stock Exchange, Shadow Chief Secretary to the Treasury, past Chair and President of the Academy of Marketing, Chief Executive of the British Bankers Association, the Chief Economist of Yorkshire Bank and the Editor of Cosmopolitan.

Job Prospects

Our graduates work in management roles for organisations such as Ernst & Young, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Motorola and BMW, in cities such as Warsaw, Madrid, Stuttgart and London. Study abroad opportunities and the chance to work in groups with students from overseas should give you an international perspective on business and a competitive advantage in the job market. Postgraduate study options at the University include our MBA (Graduate), our MA International Business and our MSc Management courses.
