Overview

Introduction

BSc International Business Management (Canada) is a double degree programme that will fully immerse you in two different cultures, learning environments, and business areas. The first two years of your degree, spent at Lancaster, will give you a comprehensive introduction to all areas of modern business, drawing on expertise from across the Management School. You will then spend years three and four of your programme taking Business and Management modules at our partner, the prestigious Brock University in Ontario, Canada.

Programme overview

You will graduate with two full degrees; one from Lancaster University and one from Brock University. Earning two degrees gives you a considerable advantage in starting your career; your experience will be broader, you will be more adaptable and flexible, and your experience of work, through the programme’s integrated paid work placements, means that you will have a better idea of the direction you want to take.

Through being taught by academic experts in business analytics, finance, accounting, management, organisation and work theory, data analysis, economics and marketing, your first two years of study will expose you to the full spectrum of functions found in any business or organisation. This holistic, interdisciplinary approach equips you for success in your two work placements too, where you will have a strong understanding of all parts of the business and apply your learning in the real world.
