The world of multinational companies shifts and grows. This makes it an exciting time to be exploring international business.

This four-year degree course is jointly run by the Management School and the Department of Languages and Cultures. It offers the chance to study Spanish alongside management studies and brings all of the associated benefits of language studies with it - such as the opportunity to gain an international perspective on management practices, enhance your problem-solving and critical thinking abilities, improve your communication skills, and helps you to boost to your employability.

In your first year you will study the Spanish language and culture from Intensive Beginners or 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 a range of choices. You can improve how you communicate in Spanish whilst broadening your knowledge about Spanish-speaking society, politics and contemporary issues.

Spending your third year abroad in a Spanish-speaking country gives you the opportunity to develop your language proficiency while deepening your intercultural sensitivity. You can study at a partner university or conduct a work placement.

In your final year you can select from a range of options. As well as having the opportunity to develop your communication in the Spanish language, on this degree you will also have the case to develop an excellent understanding of the Spanish-speaking world.

This degree helps you to equip yourself with the skills to deal with the cultural complexities of management in local and international contexts. Some of our graduates have secured roles in international business, government departments and well-known corporations.

You can find some examples of optional modules in the Course Structure section below.

Beginners Languages

Studying a language from beginners level is somewhat intense in nature so we only allow students to study one language from beginners level. Please bear this in mind when looking at our first year module options. If you apply to study a degree with a language from beginners level, your optional modules will only include higher level languages and modules in other subject areas.

Careers

This degree offers you the chance to develop your international experience in both work and study, together with language and cultural competencies, skills which you can take into your future career. Some of our graduates have started their careers in various roles, from market research and financial analysis and management to communications and consultancy. Some of our graduates are working with leading global brands such as Aston Martin, Centrica, Deloitte, Ernst & Young, General Electric, McKinsey & Co and Neilson. Some have stayed in France and Germany to continue their studies or take up employment.


Lancaster University is dedicated to ensuring you not only gain a highly reputable degree, but that you also graduate with relevant life and work based skills.
