What Is an International Business Degree?

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.

Benefits of an International Business Degree

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 Degree Structure

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.

    Law at Essex university- Colchester campus

    I love my university; from the vast knowledge I gain from attending each lecture to consolidating that knowledge in tutorials. Tutorials has also been a great environment (smaller groups than the lectures) to feel confident asking professionals in my field of study relevant questions to improve my understanding of law. Tutorial has also been a fantastic place to make new friends with similar ambition and mindset. This university provides you with the necessary tools you need to succeed; there is further reading and extra support classes and even career development lectures. Furthermore, all the course information is easy to find on their Moodle page. To elaborate on why I adore my university, it is full of diversity; for example, in my course there are a lot of foreign students. It’s great that I have gotten the opportunity to meet all kinds of amazing people with different cultural backgrounds. Lastly, the food on campus is amazing, it is cheap, which is very convenient as a student; my favourite food there is ‘Zest Fresh’ it’s similar to subway but without the large price tag. Overall, the University of Essex is a well-rounded institute of education, and they make your life goals achievable.

    My Law degree

    UoE has helped and support me in gaining opportunities that have taught me new skills when applying for legal jobs. There is a range of activities to keep you busy throughout the year and schemes that you can join to put on your CV. The staff and students are friendly and the course is difficult but very interesting and rewarding. I would recommend going to this university as it equips you for a legal career.
