This course is delivered by the AACSB-accredited Business School, an accreditation attained by fewer than 5% of business schools worldwide. It recognises our focus on excellence in all areas.
It is dual-accredited by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI), the only chartered professional body in the UK dedicated to promoting the highest standards in management and leadership excellence.
The business world is increasingly globally focused. This part-time online degree will equip you with a wide range of skills to begin a successful career in global business management, or help you to progress your existing career.
You will have the opportunity to gain a strong understanding of organisations, their management, the economy and the business environment from a global perspective. You will develop new skills in marketing, management, finance, project management, operations management and human resources, so that when you graduate you have a wide set of globally-relevant skills applicable to many different areas of business.
This course is delivered entirely online so is ideal for those who live or work some distance from Bournemouth and international students who are unable to attend the university in person.
It also appeals to Armed Forces personnel stationed overseas or considering their resettlement options. The course has been developed in conjunction with the MOD. It is approved by ELCAS enabling Armed Forces personnel to off-set the majority of the course fees through the ELC Scheme.
There are flexible entry and exit points so if you’re not interested in a full honours degree, you can still gain a nationally recognised qualification such as a Certificate of Higher Education in Global Business Management or a Diploma of Higher Education in Global Business Management.
