Our Business Management (study abroad) is a four-year programme. As a student on this degree, you study with every department within the Management School. We focus on building self-confidence and improving your skills and knowledge base.
All first-year students study management, marketing, financial accounting, organisations and business statistics.
The second year explores operations management, entrepreneurship and economics. You also have options in further economics, entrepreneurship, marketing and organisations.
During your third year, you will study at one of our global partner universities. Here you will study business and management related topics, as well as exploring subjects outside of the discipline.
Returning to Lancaster for your final year of study, you will choose options while studying our core subjects of leadership, business and strategic management.
We seek to make our graduates as marketable as possible to potential employers. Every student has access to a specialist Business Management Careers Coach and attends sessions on CVs and teamwork. Building on your employability development plan in your second year means there is time to identify and fill gaps before you start applying for jobs.
Whether you want to work for a hotel chain, continue your studies or train in an area such as accountancy, this degree keeps your options open.
Lancaster University will make reasonable endeavours to place students at an approved overseas partner university that offers appropriate modules which contribute credit to your Lancaster degree. Occasionally places overseas may not be available for all students who want to study abroad or the place at the partner university may be withdrawn if core modules are unavailable. If you are not offered a place to study overseas, you will be able to transfer to the equivalent standard degree scheme and would complete your studies at Lancaster.
Lancaster University cannot accept responsibility for any financial aspects of the year or term abroad.
