Why Study International Business? international business

A degree in international business prepares you for a global, diverse career, with opportunities across many sectors and industries. Employers typically expect graduates to have experience of working in a business environment so it’s a good idea to undertake some relevant experience before you graduate. The Keele University International College offer a one semesterPre-Master’s in Businessprogramme for international students who do not meet the traditional entry requirements for a postgraduate business degree at Keele University. Students who require a visa to study in the UK may be able to add in a work placement depending upon the programme. The ability to add a work placement is dependent upon the UK Immigration rules at the time of the request. It may be that for some programmes students will not have the option to request a placement period to be added to their programme before they arrive in the UK and would need to apply for a new visa.

Places are limited, and you will be required to undertake an interview prior to acceptance on this module.
