Course summary

The University is currently undertaking a review of the curriculum of this programme. This will mean that the content and structure of the programme will be different from that described below. Please contact us for more information

As the world economy becomes increasingly global, with world trade expanding and the continued industrialisation of the emerging markets of China, India and Russia, there is a growing demand for graduates who can work at an international level.

On this course, you will develop a solid understanding of business and management and learn how to operate in a cross-cultural environment, with the ability to respond to the challenges of globalisation. You’ll leave equipped with the skills to help you build a successful career.

Course content

In your first year, you'll gain a firm foundation in modern business principles. Taught by our expert team of staff, recent modules we have offered recently have included Business Skills, People and Organisations, Marketing and Enterprise and Business Economics. We also offer a range of foreign languages, which might include French, Spanish, Arabic or Mandarin.

In your second year you'll continue to enhance your knowledge and skills, but you'll also get to focus on areas that interest you. Examples may include International Business Environment, Managing Organisations, The European Economy, Marketing Management, and Entrepreneurship. If you are a UK student, you'll spend a semester overseas in a partner institution studying business to an equivalent level to Roehampton-based students. If you are an international student, you'll typically stay at Roehampton and select modules from our wide variety of options.

In your final year, you'll study at an advanced level, building on the international experience developed during your second year. You'll continue to extend and deepen your business knowledge and practice and will develop an international research project.
