This degree programme can give you a strong grounding in the major areas of business while developing your foreign language skills and your understanding of a major European business centre.
This course will help you prepare for professional roles in the public and private sectors in the UK and internationally.
This degree examines the key themes and emerging challenges facing business in a global context, with a special emphasis on German culture.
Progressive business-focused modules span areas including strategy, marketing, finance, organisational behaviour and human resource management.
A study year abroad or a one-year paid work placement in the third year provides you with an outstanding opportunity to develop either your knowledge of business or to further your skills at a German or Austrian university, differentiating you from the majority of professionals.
Throughout the degree you will develop a high level of understanding of written and spoken German and gain a deep understanding of the country's culture and business practices.
In the final year there is one core module for business and management – the Management Project. All other business and management modules are optional, allowing you to examine areas already studied at a more advanced level. You will select from a wide range of optional modules, allowing you to tailor your degree programme to suit your individual interests and ambitions.
Placement - This degree provides you with the opportunity to take a one-year industry placement in a German-speaking country between your second and final year of study, which we encourage students to do. You can also choose to study at a university, such as Regensberg in Germany or Graz in Austria. Both of these institutions are particularly appropriate for this particular course. The Department of Modern Languages and European Studies has a study abroad officer who can help you prepare for study at one of these universities. A successful industry placement can also lead to a job offer with your placement company upon graduation. You will also have lots of opportunities to develop excellent professional contacts that will stand you in good stead for the future.
