International Business encompasses the study of public, private and not-for-profit organisations, both small and large, their management practices and processes, and the changing external and increasingly global environment in which they operate. The four-year MA Honours degree programme in International Business with Italian is a specialist degree within the MA Business Studies portfolio and is designed to address the growing internationalisation and globalisation of business. To reflect that, students are required, through the third year exchange programme, to study abroad and experience at first hand different cultures and approaches and develop their understanding of the international environment. For students with good language skills, this may include foreign language study. The Business School currently has a number of exchange partners in Europe for those whose language of study is Italian.
