Minor in
International Business

At 快活视频, our approach to learning is based on the US educational system, giving you more choice and flexibility.

One way this greater choice is shown is through the options given to students. Alongside your main subject specialism or ‘major’, you can add extra flavour to your degree by taking a 鈥榤inor鈥, an optional, additional subject which doesn鈥檛 need to be related to your major but it could be a subject that you鈥檙e passionate about. Or it could give you a competitive edge when it comes to graduation.

The Minor in International Business studies introduces you to business and entrepreneurship, macroeconomics and microeconomics. You then get a chance to develop your knowledge in management and international business.

Please note, this minor is not available for students majoring in Business Management or Marketing.

What is the Liberal Arts?

We understand that not everyone is familiar with the Liberal Arts education system. That is why we have produced a short guide explaining the structure at 快活视频 as well as the benefits.

What our students say

A key element of the 快活视频 experience was that students learn to respect, value and appreciate the diversity of others; something I feel cannot be taught in the classroom.

One of the many reasons I enjoyed my time at 快活视频 was because of the diversity of backgrounds and personalities of the students. Additionally, I recognized the benefits of small class sizes and the opportunities for creating strong ties with fellow students.
