BSc in Business Management (Study Abroad) (Full Time)

Lancaster University

Bachelor Degree , Business And Management

Course Description

Our Business Management (study abroad) is a four-year programme. As a student on this degree, you study with every department within the Management School. We focus on building self-confidence and improving your skills and knowledge base.

All first-year students study management, marketing, financial accounting, organisations and business statistics.

The second year explores operations management, entrepreneurship and economics. You also have options in further economics, entrepreneurship, marketing and organisations.

During your third year, you will study at one of our global partner universities. Here you will study business and management related topics, as well as exploring subjects outside of the discipline.

Returning to Lancaster for your final year of study, you will choose options while studying our core subjects of leadership, business and strategic management.

We seek to make our graduates as marketable as possible to potential employers. Every student has access to a specialist Business Management Careers Coach and attends sessions on CVs and teamwork. Building on your employability development plan in your second year means there is time to identify and fill gaps before you start applying for jobs.

Whether you want to work for a hotel chain, continue your studies or train in an area such as accountancy, this degree keeps your options open.

Lancaster University will make reasonable endeavours to place students at an approved overseas partner university that offers appropriate modules which contribute credit to your Lancaster degree.  Occasionally places overseas may not be available for all students who want to study abroad or the place at the partner university may be withdrawn if core modules are unavailable. If you are not offered a place to study overseas, you will be able to transfer to the equivalent standard degree scheme and would complete your studies at Lancaster.

Lancaster University cannot accept responsibility for any financial aspects of the year or term abroad.

Course Content

Lancaster University offers a range of programmes, some of which follow a structured study programme, and others which offer the chance for you to devise a more flexible programme to complement your main specialism. We divide academic study into two sections - Part 1 (Year 1) and Part 2 (Year 2, 3 and sometimes 4). For most programmes Part 1 requires you to study 120 credits spread over at least three modules which, depending upon your programme, will be drawn from one, two or three different academic subjects. A higher degree of specialisation then develops in subsequent years. For more information about our teaching methods at Lancaster please visit our Teaching and Learning section.

The following courses do not offer modules outside of the subject area due to the structured nature of the programmes: Architecture, Law, Physics, Engineering, Medicine, Sports and Exercise Science, Biochemistry, Biology, Biomedicine and Biomedical Science.

Information contained on the website with respect to modules is correct at the time of publication, and the University will make every reasonable effort to offer modules as advertised. In some cases changes may be necessary and may result in some combinations being unavailable, for example as a result of student feedback, timetabling, Professional Statutory and Regulatory Bodies' (PSRB) requirements, staff changes and new research.
