BSc International Management

General

Program Description

Overview

Our International Management BSc includes a year at one of our overseas campuses or with an international partner institution.

Providing a broad, thorough and fully integrated education in business management, it serves as an excellent foundation for a wide range of careers. You will learn to understand how organisations operate in an increasingly competitive and complex global environment.

You will gain valuable experience including insights of diverse cultures and international business practices. You will study comparable modules to your counterparts back in Nottingham in your second year and all classes will be taught in English; you will return to the UK for your final year.

Key to the philosophy of management studies is the integration of the teaching of traditional business disciplines with the study of contemporary business issues. This is evidenced most strongly in the first year with the inclusion of core modules Entrepreneurship and Business, and New Venture Creation.
