International Business Management Course

Aberdeen Business School at Robert Gordon University invites undergraduate students to apply for the International Business Management Course.

The new International Business Management degree has been designed to develop the managerial, business, intercultural and personal skills required in contemporary global business. The course is grounded in general business subjects and incorporates theory and practice which builds your understanding of international management today. 

You will also learn and develop competency in a range of transferable skills and knowledge - in computing and communications and in analytical methodologies, presentation and teamwork practice. These are the key skills which have been identified by employers as essential for a business professional and will equip and enable you to operate successfully within the highly competitive and challenging international business environment.

The course combines a unique blend of modules. In the first stages (1 and 2) you will be introduced and given a grounding in the basic principles of business management. Later in the course there is the opportunity to choose and focus on specific areas of international business.

An essential part of this course is that students must study abroad at some point in their studies. Working or studying overseas provides valuable knowledge and experience and can be an advantage when applying for international business roles in the future. 

Study abroad can be arranged through the university Erasmus Programme, an exchange with one of our partner Business Schools in Europe, all of which are of the highest standing in their respective countries. When you study abroad, you will be taught and assessed in English but also have the opportunity to learn the local language. 

This can be done either in Semester 1 of Year 2, or in Year 3 (both Semesters) and a placement can be arranged through our dedicated Placement Office. In this placement you will work in a real job and report to a manager who will assess your performance on a regular basis. 

RGU offers a range of scholarships for both undergraduate and postgraduate students. Winning a scholarship can be an easy way of boosting your income, leaving you free to concentrate on your studies.

The following scholarships are for students on undergraduate courses taught at Aberdeen Business School:
  • The KCA Deutag Business Scholarship
  • Petrofac Business Scholarship
  • Talisman Management Scholarship
The university has established close associations with employers and organisations both locally and nationally and their support for the school is invaluable. Some employers provide a number of prizes, awarded at various stages of undergraduate or postgraduate study, through which they encourage and recognise the effort and enterprise shown by many of our students.

Hungarian Government Scholarships

Through the Hungarian Scholarship Board Office, the Hungarian Minister of Education and Culture offers scholarships for foreign students and professors of higher education institutions as well as research fellows who intend to gain further professional experience in Hungarian institutions of higher education or research.

Scholarships can be applied for under two systems:

The Office of the Hungarian Scholarship Board (hereinafter HSB) welcomes applications by citizens of countries (and territories) that have a valid/effective educational co-operation programme with Hungary, or a bilateral agreement signed by the Hungarian Government or the Ministry of Education and Culture of Hungary and the relevant ministry of the given country (or territory). Assessment and shortlisting of applications is conducted by the relevant home country (or territory) scholarship authority or Ministry of Education, as well as dissemination of all information regarding the application procedure and deadlines. The list of countries (or territories) and contact information on the partner scholarship offices can be found on our webpage (

Although the Hungarian Scholarship Board accepts applications from these countries (or territories) submitted directly to its Office, please note that the applications evaluated and forwarded by the home country (or territory) authorities always take precedence.

COUNTRIES WHOSE CITIZENS MAY APPLY ONLY ON THE BASIS OF BILATERAL AGREEMENTS: Afghanistan, Lithuania, Mongolia, Palestine, Ukraine, Yemen and Vietnam.

The scholarships offered in the bilateral agreements announced by the foreign partners are also categorized according to these scholarship types. In some cases the co-operation programme/bilateral agreement does not contain all the scholarships listed under the pool programme, hence they may not figure among the scholarships announced by the partner office. For citizens of countries that have a bilateral agreement and a partner scholarship office it is recommended to submit their applications directly to HSB, in the pool system, in case the bilateral agreement does not allow for a specific type of scholarship listed in the pool programme.
Applicants are exempt who gained admission to a tuition-free program at an institution of higher education (state-financed university, full-time program), where the working language is different from Hungarian.
