“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.”Alfie Jordan Sibley, BA (Hons) International Business Management graduate
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.
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.
