Course description

In a globalised world, intercultural awareness and an appreciation of the value of communication is crucial. Run in partnership with Norwich Business School, this course will prepare you for a career on the global stage of business management. Expertise in these important fields enables you to reach across borders and understand how the media and politics shape communication. This degree is ideal if you want to master a range of approaches to communication while also developing intercultural business skills. Perhaps you aspire to go into international commerce and communications, media, finance, journalism or tourism. Or maybe you want to work in a multinational business, marketing or international banking. Whatever your goal, this degree will set you on the path. You’ll have access to excellent language resources as well as career development embedded in the curriculum, supporting you to excel beyond your degree. Gaining the skills you need through lectures, presentations, seminars and study groups, you’ll learn self-motivation and the ability to work to schedules and organise a varied workload. You’ll become adept at teamwork, preparing and giving presentations, and responding to complex arguments – skills that are highly valued in the workplace. Our state-of-the-art facilities, including a multimedia self-access room, will ensure you get the most out of your degree. In your business modules you’ll get to grips with complex management problems and learn a range of management approaches you can apply anywhere in the world. Meanwhile, in your language modules you’ll explore what makes an effective communicator in international settings through the study of intercultural and interpersonal communication, both in theory and practice. After the first year, you can tailor your studies as you become more certain about your ambitions. You’ll build on your knowledge of business and communications by choosing from a range of optional modules. By the time you reach the third year you’ll have a good idea of your goals, and you’ll be able to specialise accordingly, as you build towards entering your chosen career.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
Although management degrees are a popular choice, with nearly 5,800 degrees awarded, numbers fell quite a bit last year. It's not a surprise to hear that a lot of graduates from the subject went into management, and remember that, for this degree, a lot of the jobs are in London. But management graduates tried their hands at all sorts of different jobs last year — not just those within the finance industry, but also marketing, human resources, sales, business development and accountancy. And for management grads wanting something a little left-field, our serious shortage of surveyors means well over a hundred graduates a year are taking this lucrative option. This is a flexible degree that can fit graduates for all sorts of work.
