International Business and Entrepreneurship programme at DMU offers in-depth knowledge of major functions, and key topics within business and entrepreneurship. The programme equips students with academically relevant knowledge and practical skills that are necessary to succeed in the uncertain, increasingly globalised world of international business and enhance employability.

You will also get the opportunity to consider social responsibility of managers and alternative perspectives on management. These include the critical application of classical and contemporary theory to the advancement of management practice and how organizations can manage people internationally.
We want to ensure you have the best learning experience possible and a supportive and nurturing learning community. That’s why we’re introducing a new block model for delivering the majority of our courses, known as Education 2030. This means a more simplified timetable where you will study one subject at a time instead of several at once. You will have more time to engage with your learning and get to know the teaching team and course mates. You will receive faster feedback through more regular assessment, and have a better study-life balance to enjoy other important aspects of university life.
