Students are expected to gain in-depth knowledge and practical understanding of global business operations and the professional contexts in which they can apply the theories and skills they have learned in the formal curriculum.

In their final year, students are provided with an excellent opportunity to explore and master their business knowledge through hands-on experience by analysing a real business problem of the host company and developing an action plan during a diagnostic residential trip.

Final year students provide consultancy services to global businesses in a real business setting and learn from first-hand experience.

|Q.||What is the non-JUPAS admission quota?|
|A.||We expect to admit around three students through the non-JUPAS route in 2017.|
|Q.||The non-JUPAS intake is very small, so what is the size of the programme?|
We expect to have around 25 students. The intakes are JUPAS and non-JUPAS, and include local and non-local students.
|Q.||What IB scores/GCEAL grades have students been admitted with in the past?|
|A.||We interviewed applicants with IB scores >=30 (including bonus) or with grade A in 3 GCEAL subjects last year. We expect students who receive our offers to have IB scores of at least 33 (including bonus) or 3 subjects at grade A in GCEAL.|
|Q.||Do I need to attend an admission interview?|
|A.||Yes, non-JUPAS applicants must attend ONE interview before they can receive any offer from this programme. The interview is usually arranged in mid/late March. Another interview will be arranged in June/July for shortlisted candidates who cannot attend the interview in March or are shortlisted after the March interview. We prefer to meet applicants face to face in a group setting rather than through any digital means.|
|Q.||Do you have any IB subject requirements (e.g. HL for certain subjects)?|
|A.||We do not have any IB subject requirements; however, preference may be given to students who have studied SL/HL Mathematics.|
