International Management (Full-Time, 2018 Entry)


What will I learn?

Our BSc International Management degree is consistently highly ranked. It provides the opportunity to gain a broad knowledge of business and management, while improving your ability to operate across cultural boundaries, embrace different perspectives and challenge traditional ways of thinking.

International exposure brings added value to your academic, personal and professional development and enables you to build your global network. Both traditional and innovative teaching methods, enhanced by state-of-the-art technology, are used to provide a wide range of learning experiences.

Our four year course is designed to equip you with the knowledge and employability skills for a successful career in global business. Your third year will be spent abroad, in either a partner institution and/or working on an approved work placement. This will increase your confidence, cultural awareness and prepare you for your final year and future career. In your fourth year you will return to WBS to complete your studies, empowered by your overseas experience.

How will I learn?

Teaching is delivered via lectures and seminars. Lectures will be in larger groups of up to 450 in your first year, and seminars (also known as tutorials) are taught in smaller groups of around 20-25. As you progress to your second and final years you will find that some of the lectures are smaller as you all follow different optional modules.

You will have around 15 hours of lecture and seminar contact time with WBS academics and will be expected to complete around 20 hours of private study per week. This may include preparing for seminars and lectures by reading set texts, working through problem sets, participating in group work, writing essays and reports, and revising for tests and examinations.

How will I be assessed?

You will be assessed through a combination of end of year examinations and on-going assessments, which may include essays, research assignments, projects, case study analysis, class tests, presentations and group work.

What opportunities are there to study abroad?

Your third year will be spent abroad, in either a partner institution and/or working on an approved work placement.
