Why Coventry University?
An award-winning university, we are committed to providing our students with the best possible experience. We continue to invest in both our facilities and our innovative approach to education. Our students benefit from industry-relevant teaching, and resources and support designed to help them succeed. These range from our modern library and computing facilities to dedicated careers advice and our impressive Students’ Union activities.
International business now touches the lives of everyone across the globe; it is therefore important for anyone working in business to understand the events, trends and forces that play a vital role in shaping commercial success or failure.
We place a significant emphasis on strategy development, recognising that to be competitive in today’s dynamic, complex environment, businesses must become less bureaucratic and more flexible, able to identify market opportunities and shift from one dominant strategy to another. You will be encouraged to adopt the view that all managers need to be involved in the strategic management process to achieve better organisational performance and maintain a position of competitive advantage.
We will examine the tools and techniques to identify and manage key issues for the future of your organisation, such as scanning the environment for critical information, suggesting changes to strategies to take advantage of environmental shifts and working with others to continuously improve work methods, procedures and evaluation techniques.
The course applies the six PRME (Principles for Responsible Management Education) and the course team conveys these principles and values to our students too, integrating them into the curriculum through Corporate and Social Responsibility and areas such as sustainable trading. The Business School has adopted PRME across its portfolio as a framework that is internationally recognised for adaption and change, an area critical for all businesses trading today. This aims to support a generation of students who can focus on not just profits, but sustainability and good corporate citizenship in doing so enhance graduates employment opportunities.
The business world is increasingly internationally-focused and this course will help to prepare you for a career in a wide range of multinational organisations, businesses, management consultancies and government organisations.
This course will give you the chance to develop and hone your business skills, building on your existing understanding of business and management, while helping you understand the subject in the international context of today's corporate environment.
You will have the opportunity to develop the intellectual and professional skills needed for performing strategic analysis, choosing strategies and executing these strategies with desired results, as well as enhancing your cross-cultural awareness and competence, interpersonal, communicative and collaborative-working skills, all directly relevant to employers and of great value when seeking future employment.
Coventry University is committed to preparing you for your future career and giving you a competitive edge in the graduate job market. The University’s Careers and Employability team provide a wide range of support services to help you plan and prepare for your career.
