First year

In the years you spend studying BSc International Business at Birmingham Business School, you will follow the core modules offered on the three-year BSc Business Management degree. You will also be prepared for your year overseas.

Second year

Your second year allows you build your degree depending on your interests and career aspirations. If at the end of your second year you decide you do not want to take up the year abroad you can choose to transfer to the three year programme.

Third year

You will spend your third year abroad at one of our partner institutions all of which are highly regarded. As the number of places at each institution varies from year to year, you’ll need to be flexible about where you go. The exact subjects you study will depend on where you go but are compatible with the Business Management and the Business Communications degrees. Please note that your year abroad is conditional upon a good performance in the first and second year exams.

Fourth year

Your final year of study continues to allow you to build your degree depending on your interests and career aspirations. We’re constantly updating the range of modules on offer to reflect the ever-changing world of business. This ensures that your degree remains sufficiently generalist to give you a wide choice of career options on graduation.
