European and International Business Management

The course is designed for students who wish to develop a truly international perspective on management, by sharing the experience of living and studying in 3 different European countries. The course takes place in 3 countries, in 3 European institutions, and is taught in 3 languages: Spanish, French and English. Students spend their 1st term in Spain or France, their 2nd in France or Spain, and their 3rd at the School of Management in Bradford, UK. The course includes some language tuition, but students must be competent in at least 2 of the 3 languages used and have the ability to become proficient in the 3rd. Students spend the final 12 weeks of the course on work placement or writing a report.

Entry requirements

A good degree, not necessarily in business and management, from an approved university. Exceptional candidates without the usual academic qualifications but with appropriate professional qualifications may be admitted on their merit. There is no requirement for previous work experience. Applicants need to be competent in at least 2 of the 3 languages used in the course (Spanish, French and English). Minimum IELTS 6.5 or equivalent.

Course modules

Compulsory modules are taught during the 1st 6 months in Deusto-Bilbao and Audencia-Nantes, and elective modules taught during the Spring period at Bradford. Students must simultaneously prepare a dissertation. After the Dissertation's viva and the electives' exams at Bradford, students undertake a tutored internship of 3 to 6 months. The 2nd term (January-March) offers more advanced courses, so that postgraduates can solve real case-studies of international companies using management tools with a sound technical basis.

Assessment methods

Assessment is by a combination of written examinations, assignments, group projects and presentations.
