A pioneering new package of courses at Birmingham City University is aiming to equip business leaders and policy makers with the skills and knowledge to forge international trade deals following Britain’s vote to leave the European Union.

Birmingham City University has announced the new International Trade courses and masterclasses, which will be run by staff in its Centre for Brexit Studies and have been backed by Secretary of State for International Trade, Liam Fox.

The European Union is expected to confirm its Brexit negotiation position this weekend, which could place further importance on key officials and business leaders having the skills to negotiate trade deals outside of Europe.
