These degree programmes (Business and Management with French or Spanish) combine a study of business and management and related disciplines with a thorough grounding in the language chosen. The language component of the degree constitutes approximately 1/3 of the programme.

At no point in recent history has there been such an exciting time to study the dynamics of business and its role in the global environment. Much of the early part of the Business and Management programme is focused on understanding the various external driving forces for change and the internal responses necessary for business to survive and prosper. The programme provides a blend of theoretical and practical study, never losing sight of employers’ requirements and students’ career aspirations. The Business and Management programme aims to equip graduates with analytical and decision-making skills relevant to career development in the wider business context. These degree programmes are designed to appeal to those who wish to work in business and management in an international environment.

Spanish is studied at the level appropriate for the student’s existing knowledge.

Assessment methods

Teaching is carried out through a combination of lectures supported by seminars and tutorials. A key feature of the Buckingham teaching method is the use of small tutorial groups which provide the most effective means of ensuring that the students benefit from the academic expertise at their disposal. It is also the philosophy of Buckingham’s faculty to be available to students outside the scheduled tutorial times and to encourage good working relationships between staff and students.

The assessment of individual modules within each course varies according to the subject. Assessment is usually by examination, assessed coursework, or a combination of the two.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

As only a small number of students take courses in this subject area, there isn't much information on what graduates do when they finish, so bear that in mind when you review any stats. Management, finance and business roles are common, but it's a good idea to ask tutors what previous graduates taking specific courses went on to do when you're at an open day.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

This is a small, general category covering several different subject areas - so bear that in mind when you look at any stats. The most common courses covered here are in translation, with just 55 students graduating in translation degrees in 2015. The arts were the most likely job sector for graduates from these courses, but it's a good idea to go to university open days to ask tutors more specific questions about what previous graduates typically went on to do with their degree.
