Studying international business with German will provide you with the theoretical knowledge, practical understanding and range of skills required to pursue various careers in business or management, with global, international or UK-based multinational organisations. Develop the business and language skills needed to take advantage of a growing demand for international business graduates with language expertise. You prepare for an increasingly global marketplace, where speaking more than one language is an attractive skill to many employers. **Facilities** You use the latest methods to quickly increase your language fluency in modern facilities designated for language students. These include high-tech multimedia digital language laboratories and computer facilities, as well as social areas for informal learning. **Support** We encourage a strong student community across our language courses. For example we offer a peer mentoring programme and tandem language practice with native speaking language assistants. This helps to improve your conversation skills and helps you get to know other students on your course. **Overseas placements** As part of your course, you spend 18 months abroad. This includes six months at one of our partner universities, such as the Berlin School of Economics. In year three, you spend 12 months on placement in an organisation based in Germany. Your placement is a great opportunity to gain valuable international business experience. It helps you develop your skills and language ability, and significantly enhances your employability. You can apply for placements with international companies such as Siemens and Bosch in Germany. If you study abroad, or do your work placement, in another European country there may be funding available through the Erasmus programme.
