Combining business management with modern languages and cultures gives your degree a truly global focus.
Your time will be split 50/50 between the two subjects. Throughout the course, you'll study key areas of business management, such as corporate social responsibility, marketing, operations and supply chain management, with optional modules in areas like international business, digital marketing, and language and organisation.
The flexibility of the modern languages part of the degree means you have the option to study business management with either one or two of these languages: Catalan, Czech, Dutch, French, German, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish. You can study Italian on this degree but only alongside a second language as well as business management. Luxembourg Studies is available as an option from year two onwards, either on its own or with a second language and business management.
You don't need to have studied a modern foreign language at A Level, although we look for aptitude and commitment to language study.
You can take any language from beginner's level, and you can take French, German, Russian or Spanish post-A Level (or equivalent).
You'll develop your communication skills in your chosen language or languages to a high level. Optional modules include linguistics, literature, society and politics, history, philosophy and film studies.
We have recommended pathways through the languages and modules to enable you to create combinations that work well together. However, our flexible approach means you are not constrained by those pathways and we support you to make the choices that are best for you.
You'll spend the third year of your course abroad. We have a wide range of destinations on offer, both within Europe and beyond. You can choose to study at a leading university, carry out an approved work placement, or in some cases take part in exciting volunteering opportunities.
This degree opens up a wide range of career opportunities, close to home and further afield. You'll develop highly valuable language skills, and a sophisticated understanding of the countries where your chosen language or languages are spoken. You'll know how to deal with the international market and you'll understand the social and cultural aspects of doing business on a global scale.
Our graduates are equally at home in TV, radio, marketing, publishing, journalism or law.
