Dual honours courses

The Management School runs a number of dual honours courses in partnership with other departments. These courses offer you the opportunity to specialise at an early stage, and combine accountancy or business with a subject which may take your career in a more specific direction following graduation.

If you choose a dual honours degree, you'll spend roughly half your time in the partner department.

Add a placement year

All of our courses offer the flexibility to add a placement year, usually between the second and final year. Graduates who have undertaken a placement year add 'Degree with Employment Experience' to their graduation certificates.

Taking a placement year can set you above the competition in the graduate jobs market. Having a degree with employment experience demonstrates to employers that you have commercial awareness and skills for the workplace. Our placement students return to their final year with knowledge and experience which benefits their studies as well as their graduate careers. 

The School’s dedicated Employability Hub maintains strong relationships with industry and provides support for students in applying for and undertaking placements.

All of our undergraduate courses offer the opportunity to study abroad.

The Erasmus scheme allows you to study, work or teach in another European country as part of your degree. The University also offers summer school opportunities, where you can visit a partner university abroad over the summer. 

When you study BA International Business Management, your second year is spent overseas at a partner university in Europe, North America, Asia or Australia. For this programme, we've carefully selected our partner universities so that the quality of education you receive on the year abroad is the same high quality as you get at Sheffield. This means that we deliver this programme in three years including your year abroad.
