Course content

This course provides the theoretical and conceptual grounding to prepare students for business management at an international level. You will be taught by staff with international reputations for excellence in research, particularly on emerging markets, and guest lecturers who are successful entrepreneurs and have international experience in doing business in challenging cultural environments. The combination of various approaches, such as lectures, case studies, group work and internships will greatly enhance your learning experience.

(Students with higher education qualifications in business or management should not apply).

Unique to Nottingham University Business School, our programme takes advantage of the University’s internationalised operations and is also taught at the Business Schools at the University’s campuses in Ningbo, China, and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. This provides students with the opportunity to spend the entire second semester completing the core and elective modules at either campus while experiencing life in China or Malaysia.
