The Department of International Business is one of six departments within the Ulster University Business School (UUBS) and the only UUBS department based at our Ulster University Magee campus.

The Ulster University Business School, through its Department of International Business, provides professionally accredited, transformative, undergraduate and postgraduate programmes, led by internationally recognised research and delivered by professionally accredited staff.

Our core strength is community connectedness that sits alongside our internationally renowned reputation. As a centre of business excellence in the North West, Consultancy, Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTPs), FUSION projects, Innovation Vouchers and student projects support our local micro, SME and MNE's grow and develop.

"The Ulster University Business School at Magee is an important piece of the economic fabric of this region. It is a regional asset which reacts quickly to meet the professional needs of individuals and companies.  Over the years it has helped support economic growth of the region by delivering educationally relevant programmes to many of our members." Sinead Mc Laughlin, Chief Executive, Londonderry Chamber of Commerce.

Pastoral care underpins the student experience with opportunities to gain industrial experience at all levels of study.

Our flexible programmes are accessible to all who have the capacity to benefit from them through pathways from Foundation degrees and Accreditation of Prior Experiential Learning (APEL).
