“I chose this degree as the modules covered a wide variety of content in areas that sounded interesting and would be of benefit to my career down the line. You can even learn a foreign language if you want to, which attracted me as I would like to experience working abroad.”

Learn a Modern Language

An integral part of the BA (Hons) International Business Management is the option to learn or improve a modern language. Languages available include French, German Spanish, Italian, Mandarin Chinese, and Business English Communications. The language studied is normally related to the country that is chosen for a study placement. Students can start most of the languages on offer in Year 1 as a beginner, intermediate, or advanced level, depending on their background in their chosen language.

Study Abroad

Students on this course have the chance to spend a term learning at an overseas university as part of our exchange programme. The study placement takes place in the second year. Students share classes with local students, allowing the opportunity to examine the nature of their chosen subject area in the host country, as well as the chance to socialise in another culture.

Previous students have enjoyed placements in North America, Mexico, France, Germany, Spain, Romania, Finland, and China. Students who choose to study abroad are responsible for covering their own travel, accommodation, and general living costs.

Prioritising Face-to-Face Teaching

At Lincoln, we strive to make sure our student experience is engaging, supportive, and academically challenging. That is why, in response to the issues presented by the Covid-19 pandemic, we have been prioritising face-to-face teaching sessions for our new and returning students in areas where they are the most valuable, such as seminars, tutorials, workshops, and lab and practical sessions. Additional online opportunities have been introduced where they support learning and have been shown to be successful and popular with our current students.

Safety remains a key focus. We are fully prepared to adapt our plans if changes in Government guidance makes this necessary, and we will endeavour to keep current and prospective students informed. For more information about how we are working to keep our community safe, please visit our coronavirus web pages.

The University intends to provide its courses as outlined in these pages, although the University may make changes in accordance with the Student Admissions Terms and Conditions.
