Course Summary

Develop vital business, management and financial knowledge through the exploration of cutting-edge theory and the application of relevant, powerful and recent case studies.

We all need to be financially aware to be successful in the modern era, and this unique programme from Oxford Royale Academy provides a foundation for enhancing understanding and knowledge of business and finance. The course also prepares students for careers in business or entrepreneurship.

The programme has been specifically designed and developed by ORA’s expert teaching faculty to help the Global Business student enhance their theoretical knowledge, and draws on supporting case studies from the Financial Times, the Economist and other international business journals.

How will the Global Business course help me?

Students might have an inspired idea for a new app, or a charitable cause that they’re passionate about, but making a success of endeavours like these inevitably requires business management skills. Likewise, any promotion gained in a future career is likely to require the management of other members of staff; and while some employers will offer training for this, many will simply expect you to work it out for yourself. The Global Business course helps students be ready for these challenges.

What to expect from the Global Business, Management and Finance 19+ course

Oxford Royale Academy’s Global Business, Management and Finance course is targeted specifically at the business management needs of students aged 19 to 25+. They might be taking a gap year, or be a current undergraduate, looking forward to the world of work. Most degrees do not include business management skills, but might nonetheless lead to jobs that require them – this intensive, fun, hands-on two-week course can help students improve their skills, so that they’re ready to take on managerial responsibility in whatever form that might be.

Throughout the course, theoretical arguments are supported by specially chosen case studies from academics educated at some of the leading Business schools around the world. This combination of theory, case studies and practical workshops helps students to develop business, management and financial mindsets and establish the foundations for a successful corporate and entrepreneurial career.
