This is a four year course for most students.
Your first year will have a set core curriculum, but you will as have the ability to select elective modules from the very beginning. Core modules include The Business of Edinburgh and Global Challenges for Business, giving you two very different perspectives on strategy, finance, marketing and HR management.
Year 2 will also have a strong core of mandatory modules, including Research Methods, Career Development Planning and International Business. However, you will be able to select two elective modules as well, one of which may be from outside the realm of business and finance.
This year will be spent abroad. You’ll study (in English) at one of the University of Edinburgh’s partner schools overseas. You will take a full 120 credits of modules, and among them will be Strategic Management.
In addition to taking a few more specialist modules, you’ll deliver a research dissertation on a topic relating to international business in some way.
