Degree Overview

We offer International Business as BSc or an MA. The main differences between these are at Levels 1 and 2.

The BSc (Hons) option is for you if you want to study more business specific subjects. In the first two years, you focus on business, management, economics and finance related core modules. We also have a three and a half year International Business – accelerated BSc (Hons) available for Rest of UK and International students.

We live in a world where business operations are becoming increasingly global in scale. National boundaries now matter very little to decisions about where goods are made and services provided. In this course you will learn what this means for today’s business world.

The course has economics at its core, covering micro and macroeconomics. However, it is much broader than a standalone economics degree. It analyses the major external factors affecting global business, globalisation and applied policy.
