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.
Really enjoyed being at Manchester university, despite it not being a full campus university, I think it was better that way as the halls/residence area was separated from the lecture halls so meant you got to see more of the City.
Halls was in a good location with a wide variety of different blocks so lots of people to meet in the first few weeks.
The only downside was that the SU wasn’t that great and didn’t host many good nights there, and the bar/restaurant wasn’t amazing, much better student bars and places to eat in the area.
Enjoyed my course being part of two different schools, the language school and the business school, so it meant that we had a wide variety of modules to choose from every single year!View more
University of Manchester is a great place for any student. I myself am a foreign student and I felt very welcomed into the community. There are people from many countries and it is a great opportunity to expand your horizons.
As for the teaching the style is very similar to other UK institutions. The quality of lecturers was good in general although there were many exceptionally bad and exceptionally good outliers.
University offers many supporting services and provides students with many opportunities such as part time work.
The city itself is amazing and I would highly recommend Manchester for your university life.View more

The campus space is amazing, the amount of literary resources offered by the University libraries is very handy and remarkable. The university has everything from silence zones for the workaholics to running tracks for the fitness freaks, it’s become my home in less than a year. If you’re looking for juggling social life, health and academic and professional achievement then this is the place for it.View more
