International business covers cross-border trade, international investment and offshore sourcing. Using case studies and actual entrepreneurial ventures, students explore entrepreneurship with a focus on leadership, marketing, development, management, and growth of new business ventures. This is done by analysing the business environment, which is the core of this programme.
International business graduates can be found in nearly every industry including the public, private, government and not-for-profit sectors. You will graduate ready to face the challenge of working in a fast-moving international environment with confidence.
In particular, you will study how and why companies choose to operate internationally, the entry strategies available to them, globalisation and the international marketing environment.
