Designed to build on your previous business foundation course or HND, you’ll have the option to study across one or two years to achieve your BA in business administration – with the latter including a year-long industry work placement. You’ll develop the essential business and administration skills to work across a wide range of private and public sector companies and gain the confidence to apply your knowledge across all disciplines.
Covering all aspects of international business administration, you’ll also have the opportunity – through our dedicated workshops – to develop your business writing and professional communication skills to further enhance your CV.
You’ll be part of a thriving international Business School with plenty of support from our expert tutors from a wide range of international business fields. Our tutors' specialisms cover EU-China investment and trade, panel data analysis, SMEs and innovation policy in emerging markets, innovations and entrepreneurship and much more.
As part of our international business administration course, you’ll have access to a range of workshops, seminars, mentoring and events through our Enterprise Development Hub. Here, you’ll gain extra support to start your own business, develop essential entrepreneurial skills, and learn vital skills that will give you a competitive edge for a successful career in international business.
During your course, you’ll get personalised support from your Personal Tutor, Student Learning Assistant, and Graduate Academic Assistant. Their first-hand experience in international business administration also means they’ll understand how to best support you and your career aspirations, too.
