This 12 credit point unit of study is a two week intensive international module in which you will have the opportunity to study and work in a different country.

As part of the module you will be working in a small team to provide strategic advice to an organisation. At the end of the module you will be asked to present detailed analysis and recommendations to this client. To support your project work you will work with leading academics and industry experts on the ground in the country in which the module takes place.
