Overview

The International Marketing and Business BA at DMU links international marketing and business theories with the realities of operating as a marketer in the commercial world and keeping pace with the continuous challenges of operating in a global economy.

At a time when the graduate employment market is very competitive, having a recognised competence in a foreign language can set you apart from most other graduates and thus enhance your career prospects. This course combines International Marketing and Business with the study, from beginners’ or post-GCSE level, of a foreign language.

You will take a 30 credit beginners’ or post-GSCE module in your chosen language, which will equate to two hours of language classes and one hour of cultural studies per week, learning about the country and its people. You will also have the opportunity to put your skills into practice by studying abroad between years two and three.

We currently offer the following language combinations:

International Marketing and Business with French (at beginners’ or post-GCSE level)

International Marketing and Business with Mandarin Chinese (at beginners’ level only), with the opportunity to learn about Chinese life and culture on campus at the Confucius Institute
