Birkbeck’s BSc International Business brings you up to date with the rapidly changing environments in which multinational enterprises operate and in which local businesses achieve international reach.
Designed to meet the buoyant demand for more international business graduates, this degree provides a solid foundation for a career in a multinational company or in a company engaged in international business. You will deepen your knowledge of a broad range of management issues in key areas, including international strategic management, marketing, finance and operations management, human resource management, accounting, and managerial economics.
This course attracts students from both the public and private sectors, including administrators and managers, as well as entrepreneurs and the self-employed. Because it is taught entirely in the evening, you can combine your academic studies with other daytime commitments, including work, volunteering and interning, and other personal commitments. Evening study lets you use your days to gain invaluable practical experience in the workplace, so you can get a head start in a competitive job market, secure a promotion, or launch or expand your own business or social enterprise.
Our students come from diverse backgrounds and career stages, so you will be learning alongside people with a wide range of experiences. This creates a stimulating, supportive learning environment and gives you unparalleled opportunities for networking and making contacts with other professionals. Our tutorial/seminar sessions also let you interact closely with your peers and develop insights into analysing and interpreting wide and varied topics in international business.
This course is also available for full-time evening study over three years.
