Are you curious about what’s going on in the business world? Do you wonder how companies determine their strategies? Are you interested in the way companies operate in the areas of human resources or marketing? In the International Business programme, you’ll learn about the strategy, resources and management required to run a business. And you’ll also develop the professional skills to put business ideas into practice, including teamwork, conflict resolution, leadership and presentation skills.

Practical approach to learning is super important to me, I don’t think that I can study without problem based learning (PBL) anymore, you are learning truly long term as it stays in your mind.
