|BA (Hons) International Business|

The aim of the degree is to introduce the student to the way in which a firm can achieve sustainable competitive advantage and develop the corporation into one with global reach.
The delivery of the course is well balanced in terms of lectures, case studies and research work. Students will undertake various methods of assessments to qualify for the degree.
