In the first year we teach you the basics of business management including behaviour at work, accounting, quantitative methods, marketing, strategic management, business ethics and economics.
After your first year in Sheffield you spend your second year overseas at a partner university. During this year you'll study business from a truly global perspective, exploring the differences in cultures and economies and how this impacts business decisions, as well as understanding the challenges that organisations face when operating internationally.
We have partners in Australia, Canada, Europe, Hong Kong, New Zealand and the USA, and no matter where you spend your year abroad, all the teaching is in English.
When you return to Sheffield for your final year you'll consolidate the knowledge gained on your year abroad with two core modules in international business and similar optional modules to the BA Business Management course.
In order to meet the requirements for the study abroad aspect of this course students must pass the first year with an average grade of 60 per cent, with no failed modules on the first attempt. At Sheffield, we believe this is what you should be aiming for anyway. Students who don't achieve this transfer to our BA Business Management course and stay in Sheffield for the second year.
In your third year, you'll choose two modules from the following:
* Extended Essay in International Business - explore a topic, or topics, in detail while building on your research and writing skills
* International Business - explore key theories of international business development
* International Marketing - this module will prepare you for the challenges of global marketing
