The International Triangle Programme is a Master’s programme launched by a network of Triple accredited Business Schools worldwide. The programme aims to provide culturally diverse academic and practical experiences by combining the strengths of three separate institutions across the globe. 

All partner schools involved in the International Triangle Programme have won AACSB, EQUIS and AMBA accreditations. This guarantees a common commitment to excellence in education grounded on cutting edge academic research and practitioners’ expertise.

The International Triangle Programme at Aston 

Students enrolled on the International Triangle at partner institutions can elect to come to Aston Business School during the second year of their programme either in the fall term (starting in September) or the spring term (starting in January). They can enrol on the following study paths: 

Enterprise & Strategic Leadership 

Social Responsibility & Sustainability

Finance & Investments

In addition to completing a certain number of courses (as required by their home institution), Triangle students enrolled with Aston will be given the opportunity to engage in a corporate experience. With the support of an award winning Careers Service and our Postgraduate Internship Project (PIP) Team who will provide the leads, training, advice and professional network necessary to help secure a placement, Triangle students will be able to apply for internships to further enhance their development through experiential learning*. 


*While we will provide the tools to find placements and prepare for the selection and interview processes, it will ultimately be the responsibility of students to convince internship providers to recruit them.
