The BSc International Management (Japan and Korea) provides students with a strong grounding in international management and specialist knowledge of business and management in Japan and Korea. Students take courses in accounting, finance, managerial economics, marketing, corporate governance, research methods and international business strategy, together with specialist courses that draw on SOAS's knowledge of management and finance in Japan and Korea and their economic, historical and cultural context.

The programme aims to provide students with a conceptual understanding of core principles of international management and finance, together with the ability to apply this knowledge to real issues facing business and other organisations that operate in Japan and Korea or that deal with organisations in those countries. Students have the opportunity to take approved courses from other SOAS departments, such as Law, Politics, Economics and Languages and Cultures of Japan and Korea, providing a rich inter-disciplinary learning environment.
