Module description

This intensive module is for you if you are interested in strategy, management, marketing, innovation or entrepreneurship. It uses theory and practice to explain a wide range of essential business concepts and principles, chosen in order to give you principles of business and management in an international context. You will learn about key elements of today’s international business world. Classes contain active learning sessions to develop your analytical and interpersonal skills alongside your theoretical knowledge. 

The essential theories and concepts, illustrated with case studies, will show you how to successfully deal with issues such as increased global competition.
