We aim to prepare students with the skills and knowledge to operate as successful managers, within the ever changing world of modern Business and Management.
The department endeavours to provide students with a learning experience that is stimulated by and reflective of these changes. We consciously seek to integrate theory and practice and this includes a variety of work placement opportunities.
Foreign Languages and Intercultural Studies
We live in a globalised world where knowing another language immediately gives you an advantage in the job market. At Cardiff School of Management, we want to provide our students with as many opportunities as possible so we have a dedicated language team that works with many students from many different programmes. If you study International Business Management, you will have the opportunity to develop your Mandarin Chinese, French and/or Spanish language skills as part of your degree programme. If you are doing another degree programme at Cardiff School of Management that does not have a foreign language element, you could also study French, Spanish or Mandarin Chinese if there are places available in the classes. As well as the language element, we teach students about intercultural diversity and how to manage this in a business context. Specialist modules prepare students to enter the international business arena along with the amazing opportunities already offered at the school through the rich diversity of students from all over the world who study here.
