For graduates from all disciplines who want to make the transition into business, this course provides you with a solid foundation in international business theory and practice.

What better way to learn about international business affairs than by living and studying in one of the world’s largest economies?

Our tri-campus operation means that this course offers you a unique opportunity to spend the whole second semester at Nottingham's campus in either China or Malaysia. This gives you a better understanding of the historical and cultural context in which these countries have developed to become such important players in the global economy.
