What will I learn?

One of the phenomena of the 20th and 21st centuries has been that of globalisation. This course equips students with the knowledge and expertise to manage within this global framework. As globalisation increases, more organisations have to work beyond their regional boundaries, compete in diverse global environments and find that their traditional domestic markets are open to global challenges. These organisations need experts who can work across multicultural barriers, develop effective international strategies and source products internationally. This course will train students in these business key areas.

The course will provide an interdisciplinary approach to global citizenship and will help students develop their own understanding of complex notions in the international business environment. Additionally, the course will help students develop Digital Literacy skills through the use of applications software employed by contemporary organisations. The development of student knowledge and understanding of a range of international business and management practices and the ability to apply them effectively in an entrepreneurial and innovative manner will also be emphasised, as it is recognised that entrepreneurship is a key force for successful economic growth.

The course provides an interdisciplinary approach to Global Citizenship and will help students form their own understandings of complex and contested notions in the business environment. Students will develop informed perspectives on their own and collective responsibilities as global citizens within their local, national and international communities.

The course will provide students with the opportunity to develop Digital Literacy skills through the use of applications software used by contemporary organisations. Additionally, students will gain an understanding of managerial systems and their impact upon organisations. Digital literacy skills are also developed through the engagement with the ‘E’ aspects of the learning process through the process of engagement with ‘E’ materials, tasks, Personal Development Planning and collaborative learning.
