Increasing globalisation and the rise of international companies has seen international business degrees become more popular. Businesses are now seeking to capitalise on the opportunities that trading worldwide can offer, making international business education all the more important.
An undergraduate degree in international business will usually give you a foundation knowledge of business. You will then be able to develop this knowledge and apply it to international contexts. International business courses will cover a wide range of topics, such as finance marketing, marketing management, international management and business and management.
You will mainly be taught through lectures and seminars. There may be opportunities to take part in projects that simulate a business assignment. Some degree programmes may offer a placement as a compulsory or optional module.
