Learning on a global stage

Learning alongside a global online network of fellow students creates a fertile ground for the interchange of cultural ideologies, allowing you to develop the knowledge, skills and aptitude to work across local, regional and international boundaries, with an opportunity to attain unique cross-cultural insights from your peers.

Throughout this online business and management degree you will use sophisticated and authentic scenarios, industry employer participation events and applied case studies to critically evaluate creative and sustainable solutions to contemporary international business issues.
