The unique structure of this degree sets it apart as a market leader for students who want to study business and languages together. You will learn how to manage international relationships and develop leadership qualities for cross-cultural working. This International Business and and Modern Languages Mandarin Chinese course is only available at Beginners' level (ab-initio). This means that no previous knowledge is required and this course is not suitable for native Chinese-speakers.
Unlike other Joint Degrees, the BSc IBML Degree adopts a holistic approach to Business and Languages. Our modules are constantly updated to ensure they remain relevant in our fast-changing world. You will develop essential cognitive skills (such as problem solving skills, interpersonal skills, and creativity), enhancing in this way your employability skills.
This is an integrated degree, where the language classes (taught in the target language) will help you develop knowledge and vocabulary pertaining to business, marketing, or economics as well as current and relevant socio-cultural issues. Therefore, you will not only be able to acquire the language skills needed to communicate effectively in the target language speaking countries, but you will also develop the intercultural awareness needed to work and communicate effectively in the global market. The business modules (taught in English) will enable you to gain a wide perspective on international business and management, including social responsibility and ethical practice in professional contexts.
