These skills are often specialised, complex, and require a great deal of knowledge to understand different cultures, ethics, and politics amongst others, in a challenging but rewarding career in International Business. SUIC has recently revised the curriculum to collaborate with Birmingham City University, UK, and award an international double-degree to graduates who achieve all the graduation requirements.
