About International Business with French at The University of Edinburgh Business School, University of Edinburgh

Introducing MA International Business with French

International Business encompasses the study of public, private and not-for-profit organisations, both small and large, their management practices and processes, and the changing external, and increasingly global, environment in which they operate. International Business is a specialist programme designed to address internationalisation and globalisation of organisations, to reflect the dynamic climate of contemporary business and management.

International Business with French is a specialist programme within the MA Business programme portfolio and is designed to address the growing internationalisation and globalisation of business. To reflect that, you are required, through the Year 3 exchange programme, to study abroad and experience at first hand different cultures and approaches and develop your understanding of the international environment. For students with good language skills, this will include foreign language study in France.

Accreditation

This programme holds triple accreditation from international ranking bodies AACSB, EQUIS and AMBA.
