Course summary

Combine the development of high-level language skills with that of cultural insight and in-depth knowledge of management theory and practice.Our Modern Languages with Management BA offers you a great opportunity to gain maximum fluency in the language (or languages) of your choice whilst gaining a thorough understanding of national cultures and learning the skills and concepts of modern management.You’ll benefit from our teaching excellence - Leicester is one of the top ten places in the UK to study Modern Languages (The Guardian University Guide 2020) – and will be among the first to study at the new £16 million Brookfield campus for our School of Business.You can choose whether you study one or two languages from French, Italian or Spanish. If you study two languages then you can choose to study one at Beginners level - you will receive an intensive language course which brings you up to post-GCSE standard within a year. After your first year you can choose to continue studying two languages or choose only one.You will study abroad for a year, where during which time you can live as a student or work as a teaching assistant, with tutors on hand to help throughout the year. We have links with universities in Belgium, France, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, Canada, and Latin America. Alternatively, you can take up an approved work placement. It is even possible to split the year between study abroad and work placement, giving you the best of both worlds. However, it is possible, in exceptional cases, to complete this degree in three years, without a year abroad.As you study your chosen language(s), you will pay special attention to modern, contemporary language, along with development of your written skills and study of the society, culture and literature of your chosen nation(s). You will develop your written skills through the production of short pieces of creative writing and other activities, including online language learning. Oral classes in each language are conducted in small groups predominantly by native speakers.Our School of Business is known for the ‘Leicester Model’ of management studies – an approach that challenges the status quo and seeks to give voice to those individuals, groups and societies who are traditionally overlooked in global management and organisational processes. With our distinctive approach to the study of management, you can be certain that we will provide you with a wealth of exciting learning experiences.
