International Business courses

Our International Business courses will allow you to meet the challenges of today’s increasingly global and complex business environment. They bring together vital disciplines including strategy, business management, economic analysis, marketing, human resources and trade legislation – all from an international perspective.

Meeting today's challenges

We keep you right up to date with what’s happening in the world economy. You will analyse the different economic, financial, political, legal and cultural factors affecting international businesses, consider how international regulations and policies influence corporate strategies, explore ways of attracting customers in international markets, and look at how to expand a local business into a global one.

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.
