BA (Hons) Business with English is designed for students whose first language is not English. The programme allows students the opportunity to explore a range of business topics designed to enable them to understand and develop the skills needed to work for a business operating in a global context.

The programme is made up of three main streams of academic thought: Management, Marketing, and Business English. During the programme, students can develop knowledge, understanding, and capability in key business functions.

Students also study modules in English language designed to develop skills not only in communication but also in negotiation. The programme aims to prepare students for a career in international business and to increase their geographical mobility.

How You Study

The course aims to provide a thorough understanding of the various aspects of international business and management. More specifically, the programme can help students to demonstrate the linguistic ability necessary for functioning within an international context.

Formative feedback may not be written down and may be directed to a group as well as to an individual.

For assessed work, the University aims to return graded work to you, with comments, promptly.
