Subject

European business studies

In an increasingly globalised world in which more and more businesses are seeking to expand across borders, employers want graduates who are not just academically and professionally qualified, but also internationalised, multiculturally sensitive and aware.

On this dynamic course, you will have the opportunity to not only gain a solid foundation in business concepts and theories, but will also complete your undergraduate degree – and potentially obtain a double degree – in three different European countries, gaining valuable experience of social, cultural and professional life. In the second year, you also have the opportunity to spend a semester abroad, which has taken students as far afield as New Zealand, China, South America and more.

Taught entirely in English, this final year direct entry course at Coventry tops up and concludes your studies. The first year can be studied in Barcelona (Spain), Aachen (Germany) or Helsinki (Finland), while the second year takes place in Leuven (Belgium).

Aimed at European students, a flexible programme of study incorporates advanced academic study of management disciplines and can be tailored to match your own interests and aspirations. You will have the opportunity to choose from a wide range of options with subject-specific strands, such as marketing, European and global strategy, entrepreneurship and leadership, logistics and supply chain, or a mixture of these modules, all of which are underpinned by two modules from Coventry’s award-winning Add+Vantage scheme, specifically designed to enhance your employability. 
 
With a strong emphasis on the practical and responsible application of management theory, the course aims to equip you with the breadth and depth of practical skills, knowledge and expertise to become a confident and successful business manager, capable of providing a competitive edge in the global corporate environment.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

The number of business studies graduates fell significantly last year after a long period of increase. But there were still more than 14,000 degrees awarded and this is the third most popular subject for new graduates. Because so many graduates get business studies degrees, you can find them everywhere in the economy, and very few jobs are completely out of reach for a good business studies graduate. Around 40% go into jobs in finance, sales, recruitment, management (particularly retail) or marketing. There is also a small (but well paid) group who take their technical skills into computing and IT. Thousands of graduates from this subject go into professional jobs every year, and average starting salaries are above the average for all subjects and particularly healthy in London where they top £25k. Graduates with good degree grades in business studies are much more likely to get good jobs, so don’t be complacent, and keep a close eye on your grades.

What about your long term prospects?

Looking further ahead, below is a rough guide for what graduates went on to earn.
