I am pleased to apply for the BSc (Hons) International Business Management since I have found the programme crossing my academic progression route. I have found the programme offered by Anglia Ruskin University (ARU) very interesting in fulfilling my academic and career goal.

A business qualification in business from within and inside the business environment would be ideal to learn the learning the whole of it.
