Overview

Programme Code: N290

Start of programme: September

Mode of Attendance: Full-time

The BSc International Management (China) provides students with a strong grounding in international management and specialist knowledge of business and management in China. 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 China and its 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 China or that deal with the Chinese economy. Students have the opportunity to take approved courses from other SOAS departments, such as Law, Politics, Economics, History and Chinese, providing a rich inter-disciplinary learning environment.

Graduates will have a firm grasp of international management disciplines that should place them in a good position to pursue a career in business, banking, consulting, media and other industries, especially in companies or organisations that operate in, or do business with China. Students who attain a first or upper second will be well-placed to embark on postgraduate study.
