Expenses, accommodation, working etc. 


International Business and Management degree sets the broad management disciplines in an international context, in contrast to many other international business degrees that focus mainly on economics.

With businesses trading across borders to an extent not previously seen, an understanding of some of the problems encountered, together with possible solutions, will help you to develop a deep understanding of how businesses operate.

Undergraduate courses provide you with a thorough grounding in management theory and practice with the opportunity to specialise in a functional area.

The School’s strategy encompasses ‘business engagement’ and all our courses focus strongly on relating academic study to the ‘real’ world of employment.

This course develops your personal and professional skills, and you will have many opportunities to develop your ability to make presentations, engage in teamwork and deal with information technology. Our Effective Learning Service provides support for learning covering all aspects of study, from writing good assignments to preparing for examinations.

The course offers you the chance to spend part of your second year studying in Europe, Canada, North America, Australia or Hong Kong following equivalent modules to our own, for which you will receive full credit. However, this could have implications for professional body exemptions.

Assessment involves a combination of coursework assessments and formal examinations held at the end of each semester. Your second-year and final-year assessments count towards your degree classification.
