Management, Politics and International Relations (Industry) BSc Hons - 2020 Entry
Technology, organisation and work all help shape modern society. How do businesses set their direction over the next 30 years? How do we create stronger economies and better societies? How do we respond to political and global change?
This four-year interdisciplinary degree is unique to the UK. We step away from idealised business models. Instead we offer you the chance to dive deeper into politics, international relations and the management of institutions regionally and globally. Our aim is to develop leaders capable of reshaping the economy and business.
Where would you invest £5 million? Why? Will that investment protect the money? Or add to it? These are the types of questions you will be asked. You will learn about areas of management such as Organisation, Work and Technology, Entrepreneurship, and Marketing. You will also study Politics and International Relations to better understand the global business world.
If you’re going to be a future business leader, you need to earn the right to be heard. Challenges include asking you to identify the most important story on the front page of the Financial Times or Newsweek. You will spend your third year within an organization here in the UK or overseas to help you to apply your knowledge to a real-world situation.
Previous students have worked with companies such as Hyundai, Deloitte, Irdeto, PwC, Sony and RES4MED in roles across business development, marketing, recruitment, PR and management.
As a graduate of this degree, you will be better able to decipher political situations and their impact on business. Every organisation needs people who think about and understand how the world works. This degree will help you be one of them.

Many of Lancaster's degree programmes are flexible, offering students the opportunity to cover a wide selection of subject areas to complement their main specialism. You will be able to study a range of modules, some examples of which are listed below.
Module information for this year is not currently available.
Lancaster University offers a range of programmes, some of which follow a structured study programme, and others which offer the chance for you to devise a more flexible programme. We divide academic study into two sections - Part 1 (Year 1) and Part 2 (Year 2, 3 and sometimes 4). For most programmes Part 1 requires you to study 120 credits spread over at least three modules which, depending upon your programme, will be drawn from one, two or three different academic subjects. A higher degree of specialisation then develops in subsequent years. For more information about our teaching methods at Lancaster visit our Teaching and Learning section.
Information contained on the website with respect to modules is correct at the time of publication, but changes may be necessary, for example as a result of student feedback, Professional Statutory and Regulatory Bodies' (PSRB) requirements, staff changes, and new research.
