European and international markets present huge opportunities for multilingual graduates with business and management skills. This degree course integrates both academic fields, enabling students to enter the employment market directly after graduation. During Years 1 and 2 there is a certain amount of flexibility as to the language element of the course. Students may study the second language at the same level as the first language, or take up a second language from beginner's level. Alternatively, students may choose to study only German from the outset.
Our International Business Management and Languages (IBML) degree combines core business management subjects with tailored language courses that have a business focus. We have four pathways available on our IBML degree:
During the first two years of study, students take classes in their chosen pathway language and a range of business subjects. Where possible students are also encouraged to study a second language.
Third year is spent abroad at a business school or university where you study a range of business subjects in your chosen foreign language.
