Courses in Managerial English are offered for both undergraduate (B.Sc.) and graduate (M.Sc.) students.
Graduate courses are taught as six-credit modules and currently include Business Ethics (6 CP, winter semesters) and Rhetoric for Managers (6 CP, summer semesters). Any students who choose to participate without the need for credits will receive a certificate once they have completed the course.
The following information applies from the winter semester 2018/19. If you started your studies before then and have not switched to the new set of study regulations, see Service & FAQs.
Undergraduate courses are taught at three consecutive levels:
- introductory level: English for Management (6 CP)
- higher level: Oral Communication (6 CP), Written Communication (6 CP)
- advanced level: Working Across Cultures (6 CP)
Please note that these courses are consecutive, meaning that you will be required to complete them in the order given above, starting at the introductory level. At this level, you will be able to choose from two identical courses called English for Management.
Additional Managerial English courses may be offered subject to availability of funding. These courses, which may include Communication at Work (6 CP) or Business Grammar (6 CP). You can attend them at any time during your studies and have them credited as additional English courses required for the 30-CP minor in Managerial English (see the entry on Managerial English as a minor subject).
All courses are taught every semester. They are open to all undergraduate students of business administration and economics who register for them via StudIP (see Service & FAQs for details on the registration procedure). Graduate students and students from other departments may be admitted selectively subject to availability of places.
As a B.Sc. student, you do not need to show any proficiency in English as part of your studies. You can, however, choose to earn credits from any Managerial English courses you find interesting - provided you complete them consecutively, as explained above. In addition, you are able to study Managerial English as a full 30-credit minor subject.
