BA (Hons) International Business (Placement Year)

University of Portsmouth

Gain international business skills by living and studying abroad for a year as part of your degree. You’ll have first choice from our wide range of university partners, from Europe to Australia, Canada, Japan, China, South Korea, Thailand and the USA. You can study abroad at one university, or divide your year and experience in two, experiencing two countries and cultures abroad. You may study this course as a dual degree, where you’ll attend a specific university in your year abroad and complete a placement year, earning two undergraduate degrees in four years.

Don’t worry if you’re not sure which area of business and management you want to work in, as you’ll explore a broad range of business specialisms on this course. These include marketing, accounting, operations and leadership. Your module options include subjects such as international finance, tourism and cross-cultural awareness. During your year abroad you’ll be able to extend your understanding of global business by taking modules that explore business from a non-UK viewpoint.

No matter which sector you eventually work in, business is now global. This course will maximise your employability. You’ll graduate with both a broad understanding of modern business and the confidence and ability to work internationally.
