About the course

Combining excellence in language teaching – confirmed by the European Award for Languages in 2003 and 2007 – with Hull’s renowned Business programme, this joint degree equips you with the linguistic skills and cultural awareness to engage with the Italian-speaking world, while acquiring business and marketplace knowledge for today’s global economy. Our programme includes a year in Italy studying at one of our partner universities or on a work placement as an English assistant in a school.

Throughout this four-year degree, you will gain a key understanding of the Italian language and build a knowledge of the country's culture, guided by our state-of-the-art Language Learning Centre, one of the best in the country. Your employability will be given an added edge as you study with the Hull Business School, where you’ll develop a firm grounding in how a business works: the management process, its internal and external environments and an awareness of the changing international context of business. Your degree will be underpinned by Hull’s international accreditations such as AACSB – held by fewer than 5% of the world’s business programmes

Future prospects

Modern languages are vital in a world of international cooperation, interdependence and trade. Italian is one of Europe’s major languages and, since it is not taught in many UK schools, you will find yourself in demand when you graduate. Employment prospects are higher still for graduates with additional business and management skills. The combination of business and language skills will put you in an advantageous position in comparison with other graduates.

A vast range of employment opportunities are open to our graduates, including work abroad and starting a new business with the skills you will have acquired at university. Recent graduates have joined prestigious graduate management programmes with HSBC, BT and Youngs Seafood. Others have opted to go into translation, teaching both English and French abroad and in the UK, with some graduates taking the opportunity to travel as far as Japan.

Specific opportunities taken up by recent graduates include: international customer liaison at Harrods; business analyst, United Biscuits; Customs and Excise executive officer; English teaching assistant in Japan; lectors teaching English at universities in Dijon and Reims, and at the Sorbonne in Paris; translator, Netherlands National Press Bureau; international office at Lloyds Bank. About half of our graduates enter jobs which have a European or international aspect.
