Learn to function effectively in an international business environment. Fulfil the current demand for business leaders with management and language skills.

This distinctive degree combines business and management with French language skills. It is delivered by the School of Management and the Department of Politics, Languages and International Studies. You'll benefit from the expertise of two leading departments.

The first two years cover core management subjects while developing your French. We deliver several units in French and you'll learn about the country's business environment. This prepares you for your year abroad.

In Year 3 you will spend up to 12 months in a French-speaking country. You'll have the flexibility to choose a work placement, International Academic Exchange or a combination of both.

In your final year you'll choose from a range of management units and continue to build your expertise in French.
