International Business Leadership

Programmes in business are the most common found among universities that offer distance learning. You have ten thousand choices when it comes to where to earn your Bachelor's degree or other qualification. Why choose one of New World Unversity's programmes in International Business Leadership?

There are three things that set our experience apart from all the others.

Entrepreneurship focus. It's not always realistic to carve out a career path within large companies. Sometimes the entrepreneurial skills that it takes to start one's own firm are the ones that lead to the most successful future. And even within large companies, the sort of creativity that the entrepreneur's mindset brings can be valuable.

Strategic thinking. It's not enough to be able to simply follow directions. To truly succeed in a competitive environment, you must be able to act in a strategic fashion, and that means having developed your critical thinking skills. You must not only be a professional, you must be an innovator.

International approach. The twenty-first century is one of globalisation. It's best to be ready for international challenges from the start.

New World University offers the following programmes in International Business Leadership:

Undergraduate Certificate in International Business Leadership. This programme requires completion of one year of courses, or the equivalent. It will furnish you with an ideal introduction to the world of business management.

Undergraduate Diploma in International Business Leadership. This programme requires completion of two years of courses, or the equivalent. In this second year you will continue your business management education.

Bachelor of Science in International Business Leadership. This programme requires completion of three years of courses, or the equivalent. At the conclusion of this year you will be ready to be a business management professional, or to join an MBA or other advanced degree programme.

Entry and Exit Points

These programmes can be completed in sequence, and courses applied to one qualification may also apply to those that follow. In addition, if you have credit from attending another university or similar institution, you may have advanced standing. Unlike other institutions, New World University accepts all of the relevant credit you've already earned in transfer, meaning you'll never have to repeat courses when you've already learnt that material. If you already hold an Associate degree or undergraduate certificate or diploma, you will be pleasantly surprised by how short a time may remain to complete your Bachelor's degree through New World University.

Typically, six courses must be completed per year. We recommend starting with the Management or Introductory Business course, but there is flexibility in the order in which courses are completed. Available courses include:

Business Law (US)
Business Law (Commonwealth)
Cross-Cultural Leadership
Global Strategy
Human Relations
International Business
Introductory Business

Media Studies
Organisational Behaviour
Organisational Change

In addition, to earn the Bachelor of Science degree you must submit an original business plan as a capstone project.
