What will I learn?

You’ll gain a detailed understanding of businesses in an international context, enabling you to work for a leading global firm or operate across borders with your own company.

The course covers the entire process of starting a new business venture, from the initial idea to international expansion. It will help you to identify and develop business opportunities and teach you how to check the feasibility of a venture using key frameworks and tools. It will teach you business growth strategies and what funding options are available to entrepreneurs.

You’ll also appreciate how enterprises can vary in terms of their mission, from commercial ventures aiming to maximise profits to social enterprises who prioritise social wealth creation. We also explore entrepreneurship in the context of family business and corporate intrapreneurship.

We’ll equip you with a broad knowledge of the international business environment. You’ll develop an understanding of how the external environment can affect business decision-making and behaviours. We examine foreign market entry modes, approaches to international trade, how international businesses are structured as well as the impact of technology and country policies on company strategy.

We examine the traits and characteristics often associated with successful entrepreneurs and help you to develop an entrepreneurial mindset. This can empower you to create your own business and makes you alert to opportunities for growth and innovation in markets.
