The joint study programmes “with/and management studies” are aimed at students who wish to add a practical element to their studies by combining language, chemistry, mathematics or statistics training with practical management subjects.
Students in chemistry, mathematics or statistics are often seeking to combine the analytical, logical thinking, problem-solving and numerical skills they develop with a foundation in management studies. Similarly, many language students look to broaden their experience and skills by combining linguistic and cultural studies with management topics. All UCL School of Management joint study programmes directly benefit students seeking careers in management. No previous knowledge of management studies is required.
The joint study programmes produce well-rounded individuals whose breadth of knowledge appeals to employers looking for graduates with multi-faceted skill sets. Students on the joint study programmes should be interested in the following:
- Learning about basic management functions and their practical application
- Developing interpersonal and communication skills
- Improving critical and analytical thinking
- Practising presentation skills
- Engaging in teamwork
- Contributing to case study work and class discussions
