What you'll study

On this course, you study the core modules of international accounting and finance as well as strategic management in the first part of the year. You then go on to study international marketing and international business in the second part. You learn through a mixture of group lectures, small seminars, workshops, presentations, exams and coursework.

First year

All modules are subject to availability and this list may change at any time.

The course consists of 120 credits per year. Most modules are 20 credits, meaning you’ll study six modules each year. Some longer modules, such as a dissertation, are worth more (e.g. 40 credits). In these cases, you’ll study fewer modules - but the number of credits will always add up to 120.

Core modules

Core and compulsory modules are fundamental to achieving the learning outcomes for your course and must be studied.

  • Comparative and International Human Resource Management

    This module introduces the interplay between political economy, culture and work practices. It highlights the contextual nature of understanding, articulation and interpretation of HRM at international level, and explores how organisations can use this to their advantage.

  • The Internet and E-Commerce

    Discover exciting digital technologies that are changing society and business. You'll learn how to develop your own website without any need for coding and communicate its requirements effectively from a business perspective.

  • Social and Not-for-Profit Marketing

    This module introduces you to the application of marketing for not-for-profits and for the purpose of bringing about positive social change. Whilst you will be introduced to several applications of social marketing, fundraising will be discussed as being a central not-for-profit marketing function.

  • Sustainable Business and Innovation

    Develop insights into the major trends, challenges and innovative thinking on business sustainability and corporate responsibility. You'll be introduced to alternative business models, innovations and practices, and will explore business-focused solutions to pressing challenges.
