Learning and assessment
You have a choice of routes:
- Stage 1 - Bilbao > Stage 2 - Nantes > Stage 3 - Bradford
- Stage 1 - Nantes > Stage 2 - Bilbao > Stage 3 - Bradford
Taught modules focus on the foundations of business and management, and European management, with a range of electives
You also undertake a work placement, most often in a country whose language is not your first, and then write a report on the work placement, supervised by academics in Nantes or Bilbao.
Considerable emphasis is placed on teaching and learning in small groups, and on encouraging students to work together on projects such as group oral presentations and written reports.
Students have an opportunity to broaden their international experience by taking part in study tours embedded alongside our programmes throughout the year. These tours are provided by the Faculty where all expenses are covered. Previous tours have included trips to Bahrain (Ahlia University) and Qatar (Qatar University).
These tours help our students to gain knowledge about international business and entrepreneurship, as well as providing opportunities to practice and develop communication and interpersonal skills. Students are given a hands-on opportunity to apply the knowledge they have gained in class, all whilst becoming more aware of diverse cultures and strengthening international relationships.
Students take part in a dynamic mix of both theory and practice-related activities including: interactive problem-solving workshops, company visits, talks by guest speakers (from the public and private sector), cultural visits, and social activities
The Effective Learning Service (ELS) is a dedicated facility within the School of Management, established to support our students to maximise their academic learning (eg assignments and examinations) as well as help overseas students adapt quickly to UK academic requirements.
The ELS provides a huge range of services, including various workshops run during term time, 1-1 consultations and vast printed and online resources to cater for every possible development area.
Most members of academic staff of the three institutions of the programme involved in delivering the teaching are research active.
Their research, be it in International Finance, European Business Management, Marketing or any other Management Science area, greatly contributes to enhancing your learning experience.
