What Will You Study

The Management School and the Department of Languages and Cultures jointly run this four-year degree course. It offers the chance to study German alongside management studies and brings all of the associated benefits of language studies with it - such as gaining an international perspective on management practices, enhancing your problem-solving and critical thinking abilities, improved communication skills, and a boost to your employability.

You will need an A-level in German or be of a similar standard. In your first year, you will study the German language and culture at an advanced level. Alongside this, you will choose from either Entrepreneurship, Human Resource Management, Management and Organisations or Marketing.

In the second year, you can select what to study, with choices ranging from Advertising to Understanding Culture, Franchising to Society on Screen. You will improve how you communicate in German, whilst broadening your knowledge about German-speaking society, politics and contemporary issues.

In your final year, you can select options covering subjects such as brand strategy, foreign literature and film, business models, translation and strategic management. By graduation, we aim for you to have an excellent understanding of the German-speaking world.

Spending your third year abroad in a German-speaking country makes a major contribution to your command of the language, while deepening your intercultural sensitivity. You can study at a partner institution or conduct a work placement.

This degree equips you with the skills to deal with the cultural complexities of management in local and international contexts. Your substantial international experience and language skills will give you a strong edge in the jobs market. Past graduates have secured roles in international business, government departments and well-known corporations.
