Combining Business Management with Modern Languages and cultures gives your degree a global focus.
We work with industry bodies and potential employers to ensure the Business Management (Modern Languages) degree is relevant in a rapidly changing business environment, to enable you to develop skills and knowledge that are highly prized by employers and prepare you for a global career with business expertise and language skills.
You do not have to have studied a modern foreign language at A level, although we look for aptitude and commitment to language study.
You will learn both individually and in groups, through a mixture of practical skills sessions, lab work seminars, workshops, and language classes with access to virtual language laboratories, and Simulated Learning Environments. You will also have the opportunity to meet exchange students at weekly language cafés to chat in the languages that you are studying.
By the end of the degree, you will be ready to embark on your journey as a global citizen, with the potential to enter a substantial number of different roles across a wide spectrum of industries and public services.
This course is accredited by the CMI (Chartered Management Institute). You will have the opportunity to subscribe to CMI membership in your final year which will give you a Level 5 certificate in management from the CMI as well as Foundation Chartered Manager Status.
Opportunities for further study at Master and Research level are also available.
