Ulster University - Magee

Business - International Business with or without Advanced Practice

International Business (with or without Advanced Practice).

This course will give you a deep understanding of the macro and micro contexts of international business, as you acquire international business theory, and build the skills needed to apply this to international business practice. Core management techniques are analysed from a global lens to understand their application and impact. You will gain expert knowledge and understanding of the political, social, and cultural aspects of business, focusing on the European Union, Asia, and the USA. You may opt to take an Advanced Practice option where you will gain experience working on an international business project brief.

You can choose to further specialise in Data Analytics or Human Resource Management which will be reflected in your degree title. This programme is designed to give you the knowledge, skills, and tools necessary to compete in a rapidly developing and constantly evolving global business environment.
