The award is also designed to have a strategic viewpoint, and so a market-facing perspective is embedded across the modules delivered.

Our learning, teaching and assessment use extensively case-based approaches, which consider the strategic and operational aspects of the operations of business within the international context.

During the course, stakeholder perspectives are considered extensively, and the realisation of strategies incorporates many aspects of key functional and operational concerns for businesses.
