Our business staff include Fellows of the Higher Education Academy, a member of the British Academy of Management and lecturers who have taught at universities all over the globe.

They are actively pushing at the frontiers of knowledge and generating new concepts and insights. Over 40% of our publication outputs and 60% of our impact case studies have been assessed as internationally excellent or world leading.

Teaching and Assessment

Teaching techniques include problem based learning in the experiential based modules. You’ll address problems that occur in real-world business, and find ways of approaching them and finding solutions.

Academics will support you through the taught sessions, and in planning the types of activities you should be engaging in during your independent study time. During this completion year, you will either produce a dissertation, where you’ll be encouraged to follow your own interests in an area related to international business and management and answer a research question that is particularly pertinent to your interest or desired career, or you can be part of a group of students who will undertake a consultancy project on a “real-world” client based problem supported by academic staff within the Faculty’s Business Clinic.

Learning Environment

Newcastle Business School provides first-class teaching in a world-class environment. From social spaces and hub areas to lecture theatres and exhibition spaces, our facilities are exceptional.

The 24/7 University Library achieves some of the highest levels of student satisfaction in the UK and has held the Cabinet Office accreditation for Customer Service Excellence since 2010.

Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) is embedded throughout with tools such as the ‘Blackboard’ eLearning Portal and electronic reading lists that will guide your preparation for seminars and independent research. Our use of lecture capture software will help you revise challenging material.

Research-rich Learning

 Northumbria’s strong research ethos is an essential aspect of how you will develop as a critical, reflective and independent thinker. Our enquiry-based, problem-solving approach to topics requires the acquisition of research skills like information literacy, sampling, statistical reporting and surveying.

Your learning will be directly impacted by the teaching team’s active research into their specialist subjects. Newcastle Business School was the eighth most improved business school in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF). Our three signature research themes are digital business, strategic innovation and entrepreneurial leadership, and responsible business. Specific areas of research include financial crime, corporate reporting, social entrepreneurship, business ethics, economic development, emerging mobile technology and post-recession business strategy

.

Give your career an edge

Employability is at the heart of our Business courses, with you graduating able to critique your personal skills and attitudes for progression to postgraduate contexts including professional work, and higher level study as a programme objective.

Every module will play a role in developing and reinforcing the transferable attributes that are necessary for graduate employment: effective time management, excellent communication, good teamwork and high level analysis. In addition our Careers and Employment Service will offer a range of workshops, one-to-one advice, and networking opportunities.

Your Future

At the end of this course there are logical career paths into business roles, both in the UK and around the world. You can also undertake further study at postgraduate level with a course such as our International Business Management MSc. If you decide to start up your own business, it’s good to know that the combined turnover of our graduates’ start-up companies is higher than that of any other UK university.

Whatever you decide to do, you will have strong employability as a result of having acquired the characteristics of a Northumbria graduate. These include critical reflection and self-learning, collaboration and curiosity, and the ability to apply your knowledge to solve problems in ways that are sustainable and ethical.
