Course summary

Being bilingual can widen your career opportunities, making it easier to secure a senior position in a global organisation. On this broad business management course, you learn one modern language of your choice. You spend your third year studying abroad to experience a different culture and perspective on management, as well as improve your language skills. We offer a comprehensive language education to mastery level, covering vocabulary, grammar, reading, writing and speaking. We develop you practical language skills and you are taught intensively by a native speaker. Your business modules explore management from international, intercultural and ethical perspectives. Study topics include: international business environment; leadership in organisations; organisational behaviour; business strategy; human resource management and business ethics. Your first year provides a fully-rounded business education by offering an overview of the main functional areas within organisations. We introduce you to subjects such as accounting and marketing so you have the flexibility to enter any area of business management after graduation. You can also choose from optional modules. In your final year, you have the opportunity to put your knowledge into practice by completing an in depth, independent research project or dissertation (subject to approval). This gives you the chance to further develop vital employability skills in areas of research, time management and critical thinking. Our Students’ Union organises internationally themed events and our Colchester Campus is packed with global cuisine. We have more than 20 different cultural societies and our Languages For All programme enables you to learn an additional language for free.
