Why study this course?
Our four-year International Business Management (including foundation year) BA (Hons) degree has a built-in foundation year (Year 0) that provides you with an alternative route into higher education if you don’t have traditional qualifications, or can’t meet the entry requirements for an undergraduate degree in business.
During the foundation year, you’ll be introduced to a number of areas of business and learn more about what it’s like to study in a university environment. This will give you the confidence to progress on to the following three years of study on our International Business Management BSc course.
96% of students on this course were satisfied with the academic support according to the National Student Survey 2021. We’re also sixth in the country for producing the most CEOs and managing directors, according to a study by Hitachi Capital Invoice Finance.
