We are living in a global economy, surrounded by products sourced from all over the world. Learn how to develop strategies to make businesses internationally successful.

Increasingly many of the services you use, whether it is booking a flight or watching a film, are provided by businesses located in countries other than your own. Thanks to the digital revolution, businesses both large and small can trade across the world. However, differences between nations remain and understanding their similarities and differentiation are essential.

As with all our business courses, employability and digital skills are embedded to give you hands-on practical experience. You'll also be able to learn a language as part of your studies.
