About the course
Prepare to excel in business on a global stage by combining language studies with a management course. You’ll learn to speak, understand, and write with precision. At the same time you’ll develop the skills needed to engage in debates, and convincingly support your opinions. You’ll become fluent not only in your chosen language, but also in the societies and cultures where those languages are spoken. Meanwhile, you’ll develop your understanding of global business and discover the essentials of business, marketing, and intercultural communication. By the end of your degree you will be able to demonstrate critical thinking, sophisticated expression, and independence in your chosen language, as well as knowing how to make sound business decisions. This degree combination opens up excellent opportunities in any sector with global interests and multilingual workforces.

Course overview
As well as developing your language competence, you’ll explore the theory and practice of business management, and the role of language and translation in today’s global communication networks.

The language-learning element of your degree will involve translation from and to English, reading and listening comprehension, précis and paraphrase work, the study of different styles and registers, lexical exercises and oral work. At the same time you’ll also develop your business acumen by undertaking modules providing you with the foundations of business management. You may like to specialise in marketing or business ethics, or intercultural communication.

Since presentation skills are vital in the contemporary work environment, you’ll focus on vocal and physical projection, developing poise and managing nerves. You’ll also practise speaking from notes, improvisation, and being able to structure arguments coherently.

In all of these activities, you’ll use contemporary rather than literary or historical materials.

You’ll also have the opportunity to take another language as part of your degree or as a non-credit module with certification at no extra cost. You can choose from Arabic, British Sign Language, Chinese, French, German, Japanese, Italian, Spanish, Russian and Advanced English.
