  • International managers need to have qualities such as drive and leadership. They need to be good communicators and sensitive to different cultures and traditions. Those who acquire these skills are hugely valued by employers.

    This course has been designed so that the various subjects support each other. In particular, part of the Business teaching is carried out in French, German or Spanish. Due to this unique integrated structure, the course remains a market leader for students wanting to study Business and Modern Languages.


    The course will develop your fluency, accuracy and confidence in using the language, both in business situations and more generally. You will benefit from a broad-based business education which covers the areas of marketing, economics, operations management, accounting, finance, business strategy, and business environment.

    Students  also have the option to study Chinese, Arabic or Portuguese at beginners level, giving you the opportunity to gain a good working knowledge of Arabic, Chinese or Portuguese by the end of your degree 

    The integrated nature of the degree means that it has been designed as a whole, and the structure of it is the same, whichever languages you are taking.

    On the degree, you’ll learn how to identify your customers, how businesses can be organised, how to understand financial information and how businesses take account of the world’s governments. All of these subjects are given an international dimension.
