About Programme
The key feature of the International Business studies is a strong orientation towards real-life topics and problem-solving approaches, development of analytical and communication skills. Taught subjects are devised in such a way as to ensure active learning both of the conveyed knowledge and of the essential skills. Weekly class time is typically divided into formal lectures and seminars or tutorials. In addition to the class time, students are expected to undertake independent study preparing for lectures and seminars: doing homework, preparing class presentations, carrying out research assignments and writing essays. During the last year of studies all undergraduate students are required to complete a minimum of 12 weeks practice placement, either abroad or in national business enterprises, gaining experience of putting the gained skills into practice and building upon the obtained knowledge and abilities.
