Overview

This course aims to develop your knowledge and skills across a broad range of management disciplines, with a focus on the development of an accurate understanding of different international business contexts.

It is designed to reflect the changes in a modern business environment where businesses increasingly operate in a global market place, distributing products and services across nations and continents. Now more than ever, employers seek graduates with experience of countries and cultures other than their own. The optional placement/study abroad year* provides an opportunity to experience what it is like to study and learn in a different country, develop your language skills and improve your potential future career prospects.

Ranked 15th in the UK for ‘Business, Management and Marketing’ by the Guardian University Guide 2020, Coventry Business School has excellent current links with national and international employers, across a range of sectors, including major automotive companies and financial services firms. Our teaching is grounded in the corporate world, and uses real-life international case studies, as well as utilising our Business Simulation Suite teaching space to give you the opportunity to explore real-world skills through simulated business experiences and games.

* Please note that we are unable to guarantee any placement or study abroad opportunities and that all such opportunities may be subject to additional costs (e.g. travel, visas and accommodation etc.), competitive application, availability and/or meeting any applicable visa requirements. To ensure that you fully understand the requirements in this regard, please contact the International Office for further details if you are an EU or International student.

Course information

Worldwide financial networks and disappearing economic boundaries have allowed far greater freedom of sales, marketing, manufacturing and outsourcing, while growing distribution networks, supply chains and transportation hubs have simplified the movement of products.

In a complex, fast-paced environment where businesses service customers throughout the world, success generally requires specialist knowledge of the cultural, political, geographical and socioeconomic factors that influence business practices.

You will have the opportunity to learn about the external forces which affect business decisions, such as the role of government and global institutions. We’ll also discuss some of the biggest challenges and issues international businesses now face, such as market uncertainties and political issues.

Throughout your studies, we integrate the six PRME (Principles for Responsible Management Education) principles, internationally recognised for adaption and change, through the study of concepts like corporate and social responsibility (CSR), sustainable trading and good corporate citizenship.

Overview

Following your second year, you will have an option to apply for a one-year professional work placement*, in the UK or overseas, or study abroad in a partner institution.

Coventry Business School’s Talent Team can provide you with a wide range of support services in order to help you apply for a placement opportunity*, including mock interviews and CV writing workshops.

If you wish to undertake the optional study abroad/placement year*, you will take either the Placement Year module or the Study Abroad Year module which both typically run for a full academic year between years 2 and 3 of your course. You are able to progress onto the relevant module if you have successfully completed the first two years of the course (i.e. having accumulated 240 credits) and have a confirmed opportunity two weeks prior to the start of the academic year, however we encourage international students to confirm their placements earlier to ensure they are able to meet any applicable visa requirements.

Students opting for either the work placement or study abroad module will be registered on a non-credit bearing module and therefore no tuition fees apply. While the modules do not bear credits, they do require completion of a marked assessment reflecting on your placement/study abroad or work placement experience. Following successful completion of this assessment, the module selected will appear on your final academic transcript. Students will thus graduate with 360 credits in total, assuming successful completion of their final year.
