Subjects

Business and management

French language

This certificate allows you to combine business management with French. You’ll divide your study equally between both subjects. It offers a broad grounding in key concepts associated with business management and a sound knowledge of the basic concepts associated with the study of French. You’ll explore how businesses develop strategies, handle risk and take decisions. You’ll see what’s involved in functions such as marketing, accounting and finance. Combining this with the study of a modern language opens doors to other cultures and communities, and can provide a key to the global workplace.

**Key features of the course**

- Develops a broad understanding of business organisations and their key elements.

- Explores some wider considerations such as environments, markets and processes; and how these work together.

- Develops you into an independent user of French, reaching level B1 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.

- Develops broad knowledge of the cultures that speak French, and basic intercultural communication competence.

Modules

This certificate has only one stage, comprising 120 credits:
In Stage 1, you’ll study a 60-credit introductory business management module and two 30-credit language modules.
