For students whose present qualifications do not permit direct entry to the first year of BA (Hons) studies, we offer an integrated business foundation course, leading to entry to our BA (Hons) International Business.
The BA (Hons) International Business provides the broad base of business, management and intercultural skills you will need as a future international business professional.
You have the option to complete a major in your main area of business interest, selecting from a range of relevant elective modules.
Study abroad, language study and work experience form an important part of the programme.

Why should I choose this programme?
This programme will give you an international and cross-cultural view of the business world, and enable you to develop the skills and approach to lead people in a complex and changing environment.

Key skills, aims and objectives
The Integrated Foundation aims to prepare you for entry into higher education, ensuring you possess the necessary knowledge, values, skills and competencies to undertake study at BA (Hons) level.
The programme is carefully designed to focus on the academic areas most useful to your future studies. We place great emphasis on encouraging you to reflect on your learning and to be increasingly self-motivated and self-critical. Assignments and examinations become progressively more challenging and demanding throughout the course.
By the end of the BA (Hons) International Business you will have gained:
• The business, linguistic and intercultural skills essential for leading and managing people in different parts of the world
• An in-depth understanding of the culture, politics and economics of
different societies
• The ability to think critically and creatively, solve problems and communicate effectively
• A sense of responsibility towards others and society at large
• A spirit of innovation and enterprise

Program Emphasis

The programme is structured into four themes:

The event operations theme provides the central and unifying core of the programme, and concentrates on exploring the events management industry and the range of approaches to service operations and management

The business and management theme covers the essential business functions of marketing, human resource management and finance

The international theme places the degree in the international realm by offering you exposure to other languages and cultures through optional foreign language study and a compulsory Study Period Abroad

Through a range of elective modules, the special studies for events managers theme offers you the chance to either extend your main studies in greater depth or to explore more specialised areas related to your potential career destination.
