The BA International Business & Finance also encompasses development of soft skills, ensures students undertake research and present a final project all of which are elements that have been built into the programme based on feedback from industry. International businesses must have resilient, adaptable, communicative, and resourceful employees who know when to seize expansion opportunities. They need to have a deep understanding of international economics to anticipate how global markets will affect their bottom line and international marketing to effectively communicate their organization’s value to diverse audiences. Although international business can benefit the global economy, it also carries inherent risks.


Single-country studies can also be considered for publication provided that they develop novel methodological and theoretical approaches or fall within the Journal’s priority themes. It is especially important that single-country studies communicate to the reader why the particular chosen country is especially relevant to the issue being investigated. Research at DMU Postgraduate research students are nurtured and recognised by scholars and research leaders.
