Modern Language and Business & Management (Japanese) - University of Manchester

- Provides a thorough grounding in the principles of business, management and economics, and their application in the workplace in both European and global contexts. - This is a four-year course with the third year being spent abroad in a country where the language of study is spoken. It is possible to vary the focus on either business and management or Japanese Studies in the final year. - Aims to provide students with a firm grounding in the Japanese language along with understandings of Japan in historical, cultural, social and global contexts. - Students will be studying Japanese throughout the course. The core language teaching enables students to develop various linguistic skills: speaking and writing accurately; understanding and analysing audio, video and written materials; using different registers; speaking to a group with confidence; and translating with appropriate sensitivity. - Students follow a Japanese Studies curriculum through which they will learn about Japan-related topics in historical, linguistic, cultural, religious and other contexts, drawing on the wide range of research carried out by staff in Japanese Studies. - The course centres around a core framework in year 1 but some choice of modules from year 2 onwards will enable students to focus on particular areas of interest in the study of Japan and East Asia. Applicants should be aware that learning Japanese is very intensive and that a great deal of time is required for this throughout the course (extending through the summer period between years one and two, particularly for beginners). The first few weeks may be particularly intensive for those who have not encountered Japanese script and we strongly advise all applicants to ensure that they have learned at least the hiragana script prior to Week One of teaching; guidance on materials to help with this can be obtained from the language tutors. **Special Features** - You can learn with national leaders on the Manchester Leadership Programme, a unique opportunity that will broaden your horizons and enhance your CV - There is a wide choice of management and related units covering economics, finance, accounting, technology, business and entrepreneurship, taught by specialists from the Manchester Business School and the Department of Economics - You study language and culture in one of the UK's largest and most highly rated modern language schools - Graduates have an enviable employment record and the combination of business knowledge and language skills is a very attractive one for employers - Japanese Studies at Manchester is taught by a diverse team of academic specialists in the field. Our degrees give you the opportunity either to build on existing knowledge of the language (i.e. GCSE level or AS/A2 level or equivalent), or to study it as a beginner.
