BSc Business and Management with International Politics

The information on this page relates to September 2016 entry. For 2017 information, including grade requirements, please check our prospectus.

In choosing to study Business and Management with International Politics, you will explore the close inter-relationship between two key aspects of modern society. The study of Business and Management provides a perfect introduction to a career in business. You will be taught a range of business and management disciplines that includes Human Resources, Finance, Marketing, Accounting, and Entrepreneurship amongst others, and with a focus on employability and applied skills to reinforce the essential theories, concepts and case studies. The study of International Politics is highly complementary to the study of Business and Management, because the international arena provides an important institutional and policy context within which many businesses operate. You'll explore the fundamental question of who gets what on a global scale, how they get it, and why. You will look at ideas of power and justice as well as conflict and co-operation. You will be able to choose from a range of different study topics including global economic governance and the political economy of the global system, and many others that engage with the key debates of the global age.
