Stand out from the crowd
As more and more people graduate every year with bachelor degrees, have you ever thought what would make you stand out from a crowd, or what would make your job application stand out from a bundle of application forms? Why not combine your Business degree with a European Language? You do not need to have a GCSE or A-Level in a language to study for a language joint Business degree at Bangor University. Our School of Modern Languages offers beginners and intermediate language courses especially for joint-degree students studying at Bangor Business School. You can choose from French, German, Spanish or Italian.
Paulina Marek is on her final year of a BA Marketing with French. She explains why she chose this option.
“I chose to study Marketing with French mainly because I am interested in both subjects and I didn’t want to give any of them up! I strongly believe that combining your degree with a language will become very useful in life. It will enable you to communicate more confidently when you travel, and will increase your chances of working for an international company, or even if you want to start up your own business in another country. Having a business background alongside a language can also help with practical skills such as conducting marketing research, creating a business plan, managing and organising. Combining these abilities will create good prospects for the future. I would highly recommend it to anyone!”
