International Business with Language, BA Hons

If you want to learn and develop the skills and knowledge you will need to succeed in the increasingly internationalised business world, and do so in a dynamic, multicultural and professional environment, International Business with Language is your best choice.

Redesigned in consultation with the business community, this programme combines extensive and practical coverage of relevant international business issues with a comprehensive training in a foreign language (Italian, French or Spanish), providing added value to the final degree and improving employment prospects.

On successful completion of this degree you will be equipped with a desirable range of relevant business skills and fluency in your chosen language.

The aims of the programme are:

  • To provide students with the tools to understand organisations, their management and the changing external environment in which they operate
  • To equip students with knowledge in a foreign language
  • To prepare for and develop a career in business and management
  • To enhance lifelong learning skills and personal development.
