This double degree programme will fully immerse you in two different cultures, learning environments, business areas and languages. With years one and two spent in the UK and years three and four spent in Germany, you will graduate with two full degrees; one from Lancaster University and one from the prestigious ESB Business School in Reutlingen, Germany.
Earning two degrees gives you a considerable advantage in starting your career; your experience will be broader, your language skills will be near fluent (in Germany you will be taught in German, whilst in the UK you will be taught in English), 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. At the same time, where applicable, you will study German in preparation for years three and four.
Our graduates benefit from their strong understanding of all areas of business, their academic and applied experience, and an international perspective, giving them an advantage in the global jobs market. Recent graduates have gone on to work in a wide range of functions in brands including Aston Martin, Deloitte and Neilson.
