Which of the two has greater academic and employer reputation? International Management or Business Management?

Also which one is better for a foreign student to pursue in a UK uni?

Hey, my name is Alice and I am a second year studying Management at Bath. We also offer degree courses in Management with Marketing and International Management at the university so I may be able to explain some of the differences.

Management at Bath is already a very international course. I have been in groups with students from Europe, Asia and Africa. Here, the courses share the same programme in first year with the option to choose module options in second year - even though I study straight Management, I have been able to select International Management modules such as Business in Emerging Markets.

I would say that both are well respected courses. With lots of businesses looking to internationalise nowadays, studying International Management would certainly be relevant. Also with a placement year, experience working for an international company may help you stand out in job applications later on.

Hope this helps!

Most International Mgmt courses are 4 year courses while Business Management courses are 3 year courses. The additional year is to provide undergraduates with exposure and time to learn an additional language. As a foreign student, there is no advantage in the additional year. You will be better off doing a Masters after a 3yr Bachelors.

Hey

Just thought I'd add that Management, International Management, Management with Marketing at Bath are all 4 year courses - although Management has a three year option. Most people do a placement year working for a company, but courses like IMML, which combine management with a language, include a placement year abroad.
