Our course focuses on issues critical to all organisations within the global economy. The global economic slowdown, following problems in the sub-prime mortgage market in the USA, has made it all too clear how interconnected the global economy really is. This course emphasises the importance of multidisciplinary perspectives to the understanding of international business activity, including economic, political, legal, socio-cultural and technological perspectives. It is designed for those aiming at a career in international business and management.
There are opportunities to take a double degree, either in Groningen in the Netherlands (MBA International Management) subject to meeting their (in addition to our) entry requirements with regard to qualifying work experience, or to go to Basel in Switzerland (MSc International Management). In both cases, you will be expected to spend the diploma semester in either Groningen or Basel. If you opt to study at one of our partner institutions, you will follow equivalent modules to those you would have studied had you stayed in Cambridge.

Entrants will normally be expected to hold a degree in a relevant discipline. Usually this will be at a minimum of lower second-class honours. Holders of other awards, including those from non-UK universities will be considered on the equivalence of their qualifications. Those applicants for whom English is not a first language will be expected to demonstrate a certificated level of proficiency of at least IELTS 6.5 or equivalent. Requests for admission via APEL will be managed via usual University procedures.
International students who wish to go to Basel to study for more than 90 days would have to apply for their visa very early. They would apply for a student permit. However it takes the Embassy 8 - 12 weeks to complete the administration after the student has submitted their documents at the Embassy in London. If a student is successful they would then be issued an entry permit. On arrival in Switzerland students then report to the Foreigner Police or Town Register within 8 days and a permit to study is issued.
International students will normally study the whole course in Cambridge. However, if they want to study the second semester in Basel (Switzerland) or Groningen (Netherlands) they need to secure an appropriate visa - the application process for which is at the discretion of the Swiss and Netherlands immigration offices respectively. We cannot guarantee that students will secure this visa but would advise students to start the visa application process for either Switzerland or The Netherlands shortly after registration at Anglia Ruskin University. Our International Student Support Services will be available to assist.
Our published entry requirements are a guide only and our decision will be based on your overall suitability for the course as well as whether you meet the minimum entry requirements.
