Management studies

Learn how to excel in an international business environment. Fulfil the demand for business leaders with both advanced language and management skills.

You will benefit from the expertise of two leading departments, the School of Management and the Department of Politics, Languages and International Studies.

You’ll gain specialised knowledge of relevant countries’ business environments and contemporary politics, society and culture. From day one you’ll be taught in French.

Year 1
You’ll cover core management subjects while developing your French, including technical business vocabulary, business economics and data analysis. You will also study contemporary culture, politics and society.

Year 2
As well as optional units, you’ll cover core subjects like marketing and organisational behaviour whilst continuing to learn about France’s business environment and recent history. This prepares you for your year abroad.

Year abroad
Spend up to 12 months in a French-speaking country. You’ll have the flexibility to choose a work placement, International Academic Exchange or a combination of both.

Final year
In your final year you'll choose from a range of management units and continue to build your expertise in French.

Professional Development Programme
Prepare for the career you want with our Professional Development Programme (PDP). PDP includes training and workshops to improve your skills in areas like:

writing CVs and applications
job interviews
aptitude tests
If you want to do a placement, PDP will help you find a relevant role and make the most of your time there.

Study in an enriched learning environment
Alongside teaching, our academics carry out research in all aspects of business and management. This ensures that you’ll learn about the latest developments in these areas. You’ll be taught by experts in a range of subjects like marketing, finance, strategy, accounting, economics and operations management.

Building for the future
The University is investing in a new School of Management building.

The latest technology will give you a flexible and modern learning environment. The design focuses on working together, with an open layout to enable effective teamwork.

Our new building will encourage engagement with other students and academics. A dedicated Employment Hub will provide a space for you to meet and network with our industry partners.

Prepare for your future
Our graduates have an excellent employment record. The average salary 15 months after the course for business, management, accounting and finance graduates is £30,000 - that's £7,000 higher than the national average. (Discover Uni 2021).

Recent employers include Deloitte, PwC, BMW, Google and GlaxoSmithKline.
