What will I learn?

Overview

The MSc European and International Business Management is unique in the UK. You’ll live and study in three different European countries, giving you a truly international perspective on management.

It is delivered in partnership with two other centres of excellence:

  • Deusto Business School at the Universidad de Deusto, Bilbao, Spain
  • Audencia Business School, Nantes, France

The programme is taught in three languages: Spanish, French and English. You will spend the first term in Spain or France, the second in France or Spain, and the third at the School of Management in Bradford. You spend the final 12 weeks of the course on work placement or writing a report.

The MSc European and International Business Management includes some language tuition, but you must be competent in at least two of the three languages, and have the ability to become proficient in the third.

Studying the programme significantly widens your career opportunities and earning potential. You’ll, have operational experience in three major business cultures, with the transferable skills to adapt to others, and demonstrate your ability to thrive in a multilingual business environment. It also demonstrates your mobility, adaptability and flexibility, both physical and intellectual – attributes that are highly prized by leading global employers.
