This course allows you to either specialise or follow an integrated route and the modular design gives you considerable choice.
All International Business students study the same modules in the first year, after which you are given the flexibility to review and change your options depending on which subjects interest you the most. This approach gives you a vital foundation in key business disciplines to support the subjects you go on to study in your second and final years. It also means that all students achieve the same level of International Business knowledge at the end of their first year.
