During each module, you’ll hone your practical business skills as well as gaining transferable ones, such as critical analysis and degree level research capabilities. You’ll explore the cultural and ethical contexts in which international business operates and come to understand the impact that commercial leaders, and their decisions, have on the wider world.

Our MBus is designed to be as flexible as possible. You can tailor the qualification to suit your goals, choosing to graduate after six modules with a BA degree or to continue on the course to achieve the Integrated Masters qualification.You’ll also be able to study whenever and wherever it suits you, while still having access to our great teaching and online research facilities.
