Globalisation strengthens the connection between companies from all over the world. It is time people understand the importance of international business.
International business degrees are shaped to give students practical knowledge about different business management practices from all over the world. In addition, candidates are prepared for business careers abroad or in organisations that are engaged in business on a global scale.
Moreover, international business is vital in order to understand different cultures and mindsets and ultimately become a global citizen.
A degree in International Business prepares you for a job in a culturally diverse business environment, which means that any graduate can benefit from opportunities in any country.
The advantage of an International Business course is that you are highly employable for most industries since the majority of skills acquired are transferable.
Candidates studying international business will also gain information and insight about the difficulties of starting and growing businesses from different countries, something which is of utmost importance for anyone who wants to make their business thrive.
International Business is usually a three-year commitment, depending on each university. Lately, there are institutions which offer the possibility of having a ‘sandwich course’, which basically enables the candidates to work abroad for one year in the industry, as part of their studies.
The purpose of the ‘sandwich course’ is to encourage students to step outside their comfort zone and work in a different culture and environment. In this way, they will understand other mentalities, as well as gain relevant working experience in the field.
Starting with the positive part, the degree in East Asian Studies is very attractive for future students who are interested in geographical areas, since it covers many aspects of the student’s academic training very well. The subjects are distributed very well and the electives helped me to get to know other realities and possible professional paths.
On the negative side, the job offers that recent graduates have are zero, and the connection networks offered by the university for Humanities students do not exist, so finding a job related to what has been studied is impossible without the internship experience, and that doesn’t guarantee a job afterwards.
Despite the difficulties, I do not regret having chosen this career, but I wish there were more tools for graduates.View more
My experience is good in general. I did the law degree and now the master in law. The very correct degree, but the master I take it as a procedure, is practically useless in terms of knowledge.
The social experience is good, although I live nearby and I live in the locality.
