BSc in Business Administration (International Management)

International Management is the art of realising what is happening, seeing where your company is heading, preparing for change and having the right teams in place.

Your degree will prepare you for a successful career and enable you to understand how firms become and remain competitive in the dynamic international landscape. You will gain a foundation in business administration, such as finance & accounting, marketing, human resource management, organisational behaviour, information management & business analytics, supply chain management and logistics and acquire business management skills. You will also become proficient in management theories and techniques pertinent to managing a company and people in a multicultural business environment and enable you to address business challenges in a systematic and problem-oriented way.

The practical focus of the programme – including project work, business simulations and case studies – will deepen your appreciation of why, and how, the local adaptation of business and management concepts developed in other business environments is crucial for both local and international business. You will develop effective oral and written communication skills and intercultural and interpersonal communication skills that will ensure your ability to consider issues of diversity and to work successfully in global business contexts.


There are still a few places available on the programme. Enrolment is still possible, until further notice.
