Increase your international experience with a year overseas, embrace different perspectives and challenge traditional ways of thinking

Our four-year course is designed to equip you with a broad knowledge of business and management and the knowledge and employability skills for a successful career in global business. Your third year will be spent abroad, in either a partner institution and/or working on an approved work placement. This boosts your academic, personal and professional development, and enables you to build your global network.

We have partnered with over 50 institutions in over 20 countries around the world. Current partnerships are offered in Australia, Canada, China, Hong Kong, Japan, North America, Russia, Singapore, South Korea, and various countries across Europe.

In your fourth year, you will return to WBS to complete your studies, confident and empowered by your overseas experience.

You can tailor your degree towards your career aspirations by selecting elective modules from WBS and other University of Warwick departments. This provides the opportunity to specialise in a particular area or to take a broader approach to your studies.


If you study specific accountancy or finance modules as part of your degree, you may be eligible for exemptions from a number of professional accounting exams. The regulations change, but many accountancy bodies have previously recognised our course.
