Our BA (Hons) International Business gives you a thorough grounding in how to meet the challenges of today’s increasingly global and complex business environment. It brings together vital disciplines including strategy, business management, economic analysis, marketing, human resources and trade legislation – all from an international perspective.

We keep you right up to date with what’s happening in the world economy.

Alongside your knowledge of international business, you will gain the broader skills that employers worldwide expect in their graduate recruits. These range from problem-solving, decision-making and strategic thinking to research, analysis, report writing and presentation skills.

Graduates from this programme will be allowed a quicker route to the CIMA Professional Qualification and the global professional designation of Chartered Global Management Accountant (CGMA). On successful completion of the degree you will also gain exemptions towards the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) qualifications, meaning you can achieve membership of this professional body quicker, accelerating your career progression.
