This varied degree will allow you to develop Chinese language skills and gain an understanding of global business management. You don’t need to have any prior knowledge of Chinese, although if you do we can normally accommodate your needs. Core modules will develop your written and spoken Chinese as well as introducing you to key issues in international business management. Then you’ll build on these by selecting from optional modules that allow you to pursue your interests, from the political economy of East Asia and transnational corporations to contemporary Chinese literature. You could even look at Japanese politics or Buddhism. China is one of the world’s biggest economic powers, and its language is increasingly important for business. This degree will allow you to become proficient in Chinese and understand how businesses run profitable, sustainable and competitive foreign operations. But you’ll also see the world from a fresh perspective and discover a unique culture.
