Aims and philosophy

The International Business programme is focused on developing the kind of skills and abilities needed by those working in businesses with a strong international dimension.

It therefore aims to equip students with the ability to:

  • understand key issues and recent developments in international business, including trade, foreign investment, financial markets and cross-border labour flows
  • address business problems using quantitative and qualitative methods of analysis

It is also designed to give you a rigorous analytical approach to issues and to increase your skills in problem-solving.

The range of assessed work will develop your skills in presenting oral and written work, and gives you training in research skills and methodologies to enable you to proceed to doctoral research or to conduct applied research in the workplace.
