Advanced Diploma in international Business Management

Course Information


As globalisation increases, more organisations have to work beyond their traditional regional boundaries, compete in diverse global environments and find that their traditional domestic markets are open to global challenges. These organisations need experts who can work across multicultural barriers, develop effective international strategies and source products internationally. This course will train you in these key business areas.

The 120 credit hours, 8-module course is designed to equip students with the technical knowledge of operating in an ever changing global economic and business landscape. The course also covers an ever increasingly important issue of “sustainability” in the context of its impact and opportunities worldwide.

The Advanced Diploma programme is conducted over 4 terms in 8 months. Upon successful completion of the 8 modules, students will be awarded the Advanced Diploma in International Business Management.

Each term consists of 6 study weeks, 1 exam week and 1 break week.

The programme is fully conducted on a face-to-face basis. Students will attend lectures and tutorial classes. Classes are conducted on Monday to Friday between 9.a.m. to 6p.m. Class size is generally kept to a maximum of 66 students for lecture classes.
