This exciting Joint Honours degree gives you the chance to develop your skills in a major world language while building an understanding of international business management. If you have an A-level in French, you’ll improve your listening, reading, writing and speaking skills while placing French in the context of Francophone culture, history and politics. You’ll also gain a real understanding of the strategic and operational issues that affect foreign operations and the challenges involved in making them competitive, sustainable and profitable. Core modules will allow you to hone your language skills and discover the principles of international business, while a variety of optional modules will give you the chance to pursue the French topics that interest you – from Francophone Africa to French as a Professional Language. You’ll gain awareness of another culture alongside valuable business knowledge, supported by the Centre for International Business at the University of Leeds.
