Become a business leader in the global market. In your first year, you will gain a solid grounding in all aspects of business management including business law, marketing principles and understanding financial information. Throughout the degree you will also study business on an international scale, covering areas such as how to manage operations globally and cultural issues in management, perfectly preparing you for an international career.
From 2018, the University of Gloucestershire Business School will move to a brand-new, state-of-the-art home at our Oxstalls campus in Gloucester. The £16 million development will be home to our Business, Marketing, Human Resource Management, Law and Accounting and Finance courses.
As well as this, our Make It business experiences are designed to ensure that you stand out from the crowd when you graduate.
Make It international: work with businesses abroad. You will study the principles of modern enterprise from an international perspective while engaging and working with businesses in the thriving capitals of either New York or Hong Kong- the choice is yours. New York offers the opportunity to see Wall Street, the iconic NASDAQ building, and the world’s largest stock exchange. Hong Kong is ranked the third leading financial center in the world and home to the International Commerce Centre. Having global exposure will help you stand out in the jobs market, no matter whether you plan on having an international career or not. For this vital reason, the trip is included in the cost of your fees.
Make It real: learn from people who have been there and done it. Leading international brands and business figures give you the real insight into how to succeed in global business. Real-world application is embedded throughout your learning and you will analyze actual case studies, take part in work simulations and pitch your ideas to business experts. In your final year, you will be able to take part in an exciting business challenge with an international or UK brand.
