About this Course

This course has an external focus where Learners are exposed to key knowledge and skills that are essential for enterprises that trade or seek to trade internationally. Graduates will have the global business know-how, the critical and analytical thinking, the creativity and innovation, the cultural awareness capability and the cross sectorial-skills and talent to support exporting and indigenous companies. The course provides an integrated view of business situations and enhances self-awareness and transferable, intellectual and employability skills to gain employment at the appropriate level in an organisation.

Internationalisation should not to be considered as a separate part of the company or as a strategy to be enacted only in times of reduced local demand, but fully integrated into the business as a core part of the company's long term strategy. While many organisations acknowledge the desirability of going globalisation many remain focused on the domestic market.The main reported reasons are a lack of financial resources but most of all lack of skills or skilled human capital to tackle internationalisation.

This course addresses the lack of skilled human capital and provides the Learner with life and business skills supported by a work placement experience that will position the Learner to gain employment or enhance their promotional prospects in indigenous or export-oriented organisations.

The course will also address some of the key recommendations in the June 2018 Export Group on Future Skills Needs - Addressing the Skills Needs Arising from the Potential Trade Implications of Brexit. Specifically, the course will assist to:

1."Promote measures to enhance the ability to diversify trade with non-EU markets".

2. "Enhance international trading and Logistics/Supply Chain content in education and training provision"

3. "The enhancement of intercultural awareness and international business experience".

4 "Enhance the provision of financial management advice, training and mentoring for internationally trading"
