Full programme structure
Three closely integrated strands run throughout the degree: Core Management, Core Language and the Interface.
The first year focuses on the basic disciplines of management and the chosen language (either French, Spanish or German), while the interface in year one looks at the legal environments of the UK and France, Germany or Spain.
Year two follows a more vocational approach, preparing you for the year abroad. The interface in year two looks at the European business environment and perspectives on Europe or Latin America.
In the final year of your degree, management and language are studied in an international business context. You also have the opportunity to move into specialist areas of management, perhaps based on interests developed during your year abroad. The interface in year four looks at the internationalisation of business and the position of either France, Germany or Spain and Latin America in the global economy.
*Please note these lists are constantly reviewed, as a result of which some units may change. For a list of all current units offered, please visit the programme catalogues.

The year abroad
The year abroad, which takes place in year three, lets you continue your management education abroad whilst perfecting your language skills to a high level of fluency. There are three possible ways of structuring your third year experience:
- Spend between 9 and 12 months on work placement in a commercial or industrial organization
- Combine overseas study and a work placement – a period in a top business school in France, Germany, Spain, Canada (Montréal) or Latin America, followed by a work placement
- Spend a full year in a top business school in either France, Germany, Spain, Canada (Montréal) or Latin America
