Course programme

This is a four year full time course with a year spent in a Mandarin speaking country in the third year. We offer two different language pathways for beginners and intermediates.

Year 1 introduces you to a range of disciplines within the broader world of business, including corporate culture and effective practices, and you will take two Mandarin for Business language modules to develop skills and knowledge in writing and speaking Mandarin. Year 2 will progress your language skills with one further Mandarin module, along with several core compulsory modules in management. This will develop your knowledge and understanding of the world of business with a particular focus on management principles.

In Year 3 you will undertake a full year’s placement in the Mandarin speaking world, linked to an HE partner institution, improving your skills through immersing yourself in the culture. In the final year you will develop in depth knowledge and understanding of the business concepts which you explored in previous years, and focus your Mandarin language skills towards the world of business.
