BA International Management and South East Asian Studies (3 years)

Programme Code: TN3C BA/SEASIM

Start of programme: September

Mode of Attendance: Full-time

Interested in a career in business or banking with a specific focus in South East Asia? Then BA International Management and South East Asian Studies could be the perfect fit for you. In this programme, you will gain a strong grounding in management science including modules in accounting, finance, managerial economics, marketing, corporate governance, research methods and international business strategy. While we also offer specialist modules that draw on SOAS's expert knowledge of the historical and cultural context of the region, as well as optional language modules.

Structure

Students take 120 credits per year composed of the core and optional modules, which allows for students to design their own intellectual journey while maintaining a strong grasp of the fundamentals.

After the first year, students can choose whether to pursue language learning further or to focus exclusively on non-language modules related to South East Asia. Introductory language modules taught in Year 1 assume no previous knowledge of the chosen language. These modules focus on all four linguistic skills – understanding, speaking, reading, and writing.

Students who find they wish to concentrate more fully on South East Asian languages are encouraged to apply for or transfer to one of the four-year programmes in South East Asian language, which include a year abroad of intensive language-learning in the third year.
