Learn how to excel in an international business environment. Develop your management and intercultural skills, work or study abroad and become fluent in German..

Gain specialised knowledge of the international business environment and the global economy. Learn the fundamentals of management while studying business and culture in a foreign language.

We teach all units covering language, history, politics and culture in German. This includes some units that focus on the business context. This combination of language and business will help you understand the professional environment in German-speaking countries, preparing you for your time abroad

Two leading departments deliver this course: the School of Management and the Department of Politics, Languages & International Studies.

Years 1 and 2

You'll study economics, finance and organisational behaviour. You'll also learn about the history and culture of German-speaking countries.

In Year 2, you'll prepare for your year abroad by learning more about working, studying and doing business in German.

Year 3

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

Final year

Specialise by choosing from a range of management units. Optional units in German will further develop your linguistic expertise and cultural knowledge.

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
  • language and cultural awareness

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

You’ll learn from teaching staff with backgrounds and expertise in different areas of accounting, finance, business, management and economics. If you’re studying International Management with Modern Languages, teaching staff will also have backgrounds and expertise in language and history. Their passion, knowledge and research inspire their teaching. This combination aims to enhance your learning experience.

Course structure

This course lasts 4 years. It starts in September 2024 and ends in 2028. Welcome week starts on 23 September 2024.

Units

At Bath, our courses are made up of units of study. Compulsory units cover core concepts that you'll need to understand as part of your degree programme. Some of our courses also offer the opportunity for you to study optional units. These allow you to specialise in particular areas of knowledge that interest you.

As an undergraduate, you will be expected to take 120 credits (60 ECTS credits) in each academic year. Credits are usually split evenly across your two semesters of study. 120 credits (60 ECTS credits) are the equivalent of 1,200 notional hours of study; this includes contact time with staff and your own independent learning.

Learning and assessment

You’ll be taught and assessed by a variety of methods and it will vary between units. These methods are designed to promote in-depth learning and understanding of the subject.

Learning

  • Lectures
  • Seminars

Assessment

  • Closed book written examination
  • Dissertation
  • Essay
  • In-class test
  • Open book written examination
  • Oral assessment
  • Oral presentation
  • Portfolio
  • Reflective assessment
  • Report
  • Set exercises
  • Visual or recorded presentation

These lists are to give you an idea of some, but not all, of the learning and assessment methods used on this course. They are not exhaustive lists and methods are subject to change.

Learning and teaching

Contact hours

Timetabled contact hours, which can be made up of lectures, seminars and tutorials, vary throughout your course and between courses but are typically between ten and 12 hours a week in your first year.

Our teaching for this course is delivered through in-person learning on campus, supported by high quality online provision. The significant majority of contact hours over the duration of your course will be in person, and this will be enhanced by some online delivery which will constitute a smaller proportion of these contact hours, depending on your programme of study, year of study and chosen optional units. This may be supplemented by additional activities such as a small number of online learning sessions (not live), skills development sessions, and personal tutorials.

The amount of timetabled sessions on campus in later years may vary based on the options you choose, with a greater emphasis on independent learning. Project and dissertation units will generally have fewer scheduled sessions to allow you time for your independent work – this may also mean the number of hours of timetabled sessions each week will vary within a year.

Independent learning

In addition to timetabled contact hours, you are expected to undertake independent learning and assessment activities. Typically, this might be around 25 to 28 hours a week, and include individual research, reading journal articles and books, working on individual and group projects, preparing coursework assignments, presentations, or revising for exams. After your first year, the emphasis on independent learning becomes greater, for example you may do a final year project.

Assessment breakdown

The balance of the assessment by examinations and assessment by coursework may depend on the optional units you choose.

A broad range of assessments methods will be used throughout the degree. As a guide, between 40-60% of assessment is by coursework over the duration of the course.

The final degree classification is determined by your second, third and final year marks and each contributes 24%, 8% and 68% respectively.

We can make reasonable adjustments to assessment procedures for students with disabilities, take a look at our Disability Service’s pages for information. 

Recognition of professional qualifications


As well as being recognised as a higher academic qualification, a number of our degrees are also accredited by professional bodies in the United Kingdom. An accredited degree may entitle you to work in a specific profession within the UK, and abroad (where there are reciprocating arrangements with professional bodies in other countries).

The requirements to practise a profession vary from country to country. If you wish to practise your profession outside the United Kingdom, you are advised to confirm that the UK professional qualification you seek is valid in the country in which you are intending to work.

‘It was one of the most important things that’s happened in my life and definitely my university career.’

Entry requirements


Your application, especially your personal statement, should demonstrate your enthusiasm for international management and languages. You might demonstrate that you have an active interest in understanding people, work and organisations in a global setting, as well as developing your chosen language.

You will need a strong performance in German as part of your entry qualifications. If you are not taking it as part of your entry qualification, we can accept a relevant B2 level language qualification, such as TestDaF, Goethe-Zertifikat Deutsch or DSD.

We welcome students from a variety of backgrounds to our language courses. Language content in the first year of this degree is typically pitched at students who have studied that language to A level (or equivalent) and who are not native speakers. If you have more advanced language skills you may find these aspects of first year study less challenging.

We know that the context in which you are studying can have an impact on your ability to perform your best in exams and coursework, or limit which subjects or qualifications you are able to study at your school or college. We consider any application based on its merits, including your background and circumstances, including through:

Selection process

We will usually assess you based on your UCAS application. If you hold a language qualification that is not covered by our typical entry requirements we may invite you to attend an interview to assess your German level. If you are studying certain qualifications, such as an Access to HE Diploma, BTEC Extended Diploma or T Level you will be invited to attend a group interview as part of our selection process. If you are studying an Access to HE Diploma, BTEC Extended Diploma or T Level, please make sure that your UCAS application is submitted by 31 January: if you apply after this deadline, then it may be too late for us to include you in our interview process.

Very exceptionally we may invite you to an interview if you have circumstances we cannot assess from an application alone.

Our interview page gives more information on what you should expect from an interview.
