Management - Structure
Bachelor of Arts + Bachelor of Arts (Honours)
Option: Master Programme 'Internationales Management'
The Business Management curriculum allows students to develop those managerial skills that will be necessary to function within the global business environment. The pathway deals with key functional business areas related to management in a national or multinational business enterprise, providing students with an integrative understanding of the dynamic context of business.
The pathway imparts to students in-depth knowledge and critical understanding of the principles and practice of international management together with the ability to apply such principles in various organisational contexts. The modules equip graduates of the programme with a variety of practical, subject-specific skills as well as the academic and theoretic tools to enable them to undertake independent analysis of issues in business.
Business Management plus Foreign Languages
Broad-based and sound foreign language skills are essential for international mobility, career progression and professional development. Extensive language development opportunities in English plus either French or Spanish are therefore part of the standard programme. To bring students up to the level of fluency, style and confidence required in an international business context, Level 3 is taught and assessed in English. Students also have the opportunity to learn a third language from scratch from Level 2 onwards (depending on availability and student demand).
Foreign language modules develop students’ foreign language capability and business and cultural understanding in line with the QAA Language and Related Studies benchmark statement and the Common European Framework of Reference for Language Learning and Teaching (CEF). The CEF was designed to encourage cooperation between educational institutions all over Europe and in particular to provide a means of assessment of language competence which would be valid throughout Europe.
