This three-year or four-year course is designed to develop the skills and knowledge you will need to succeed in the increasingly internationalised business world. The subjects studied incorporate cross-national perspectives, and the comprehensive training in a foreign language places strong emphasis on the day-to-day use of language in a business environment, enabling you to deal with all aspects of business transactions.
On successful completion of this degree you will have the rare attributes of both ?uency in your chosen language and a range of professional skills and knowledge from relevant business areas. You will also be able to experience life, culture and work outside the UK by living abroad for a year and studying alongside local students.
This course places the study of business within the global business environment. The focus on developing your Chinese language skills will enable you to thrive in the challenging world of global business.
Year 1 and Year 2 prepare you for an optional year-long placement overseas, including study at a recognised educational institution, in a country where Chinese is spoken. We have partnership arrangements with a number of prestigious institutions in China such as Beijing Foreign Studies University (BFSU), Tianjin Foreign Studies University (TFSU) and Donghua University in Shanghai.
The language you study determines the country and universities that are available to you. The course focuses on active student learning, through seminars, workshops, problem-based and blended learning, designed to engage your interest and to promote your learning.
Assessment methods include essays, reports, presentations and case studies, as well as time-constrained in-class tests and exams.
