Opportunities overseas with new course

By Simran Gill

De Montfort University has initialised a new International Business BA course set to start in the next academic year, 2015-16.

The course is three years full-time and four years with a placement, and is for students who would like to take placement opportunities abroad gaining knowledge of business overseas.

The entry requirement for this course is 280 UCAS points from at least two A-levels or equivalent.

Augustus Mbanasor, a DMU Student Ambassador, said: “The University is getting more internationalised with their courses, which is a good thing because we desired a business degree that caters for international studies overseas.”

The fees for this course are £9,000 for UK and EU students and £11,250 for international students.

International placements are available and there will also be additional qualifications to gain, such as certificates, as well as the degree.

Augustus added: “This business course is different from any other business course the university currently offers, as it is more international as more modules are taught overseas.”

A variety of modules are included on this course such as Global Business, Financial Decision Making, European Business Issues and International Marketing.

There was a demand for this course, therefore the university is now offering this course so it can be recognised more internationally.

Augustus stated: “Being part of the panel, working on this validation was really good. It wasn’t at all intimidating as I had to talk to the program leader, deputy head and dean and lecturers from different universities so I asked them questions and got to make decisions about the course.”

There are more courses that were also validated such as Business and Law courses and Media, Film and Journalism courses, and there are still more yet to come.
