    Course Summary

    Edinburgh Napier University’s BA in International Business Management is a great way to gain a specialisation in global business studies. Over 4 years you’ll learn the skills that could make you a success in nearly any industry as well as a deep understanding of the academic study of business.

    It is of particular interest for those students hoping to build an international business career in the English speaking world, as it is one of the few International Business Management programs which do not require studying an additional language.

    You’ll learn about business and management broadly, as well as studying a range of international management disciplines. One of this program’s strengths is the fact that it contains a mandatory year spent in overseas study, real world work placement, or a combination of both. This ensures that you will gain an important international perspective as well as a deep appreciation for the ever-changing business environment and the state of global business markets.

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.
