Overseas Business Opportunities

Your student experience at Birmingham City Business School isn’t just about getting a business degree. It’s about getting the experience, awareness and confidence to give you the edge in your career.

Take advantage of any of our overseas opportunities and that’s exactly what you’ll get – along with an international insight that any employer would welcome in our increasingly global workplace. There are many opportunities, including:

Study and work abroad

'Make A Difference' Travel Scholarship

Students of the Executive MBA can also spend a valuable week abroad, working on an international consultancy project for a host organisation. In 2012/13 students went to the Netherlands and Germany; in the future we hope to arrange projects in the USA through our partner institutions in Florida, California and Chicago.

Students of the MSc International HRM can undertake a placement project overseas: many of our international students choose to do it in their home country. In recent years, that’s included Nigeria, Kenya, Ghana and Tanzania.
