Four-year double-degree programmes

Our suite of BBA degrees in International Business Management are four-year degree programmes where you spend two years studying at Lancaster and another two years at one of our top partner institutions in Europe, North America or Latin America.

The curriculum covers the entire range of management and business disciplines, and to give you practical work experience in both the UK and abroad, you also complete industrial placements in more than one country.

At the end of the four years you are awarded two degrees: the Lancaster BBA and the corresponding degree of the partner university. To find out more, see our Partner Universities page.

All of the degree programmes are designed to give you sound professional and technical knowledge of management disciplines, practical managerial skills and experience and informed insight into the culture and customs of other countries. And, if you take one of our European programmes, you'll also become fluent in at least one other European language.
