Objectives

The study programme in Language Management for International Business is conceptually designed to enhance the international vocation of the training provided at ISCAP, intending to deepen the successful international mobility programs within and outside the EU. We aim to attract students from different countries and therefore the study programme will function exclusively in English, which is considered a lingua franca. ISCAP'S strong international experience, combined with its primary mission - the training in management sciences - as well as the undeniable importance of mastering several languages and the respective worldview, in a globalised society, makes this study programme strategic to the school and to the Polytechnic.

 

What is Language Management for International Business? Basically it consists of satisfying the needs of people who speak multiple different languages. These may be in the same country, in companies, and in cultural or international organisations where one must use multiple languages.

 

The overall aim of the programme is to ensure that graduates fully understand, analyse and apply specialized language and culture related issues, which impact the management and administration of international business communication in the global society. In addition, the graduates must have a reflective understanding of and abilities to challenge business in international settings, applying general management know-how to practical business situations. The successful graduates will also be able to demonstrate skills in interdisciplinary analysis, drawing upon different empirical sources, analytical perspectives and sub-disciplines within management studies, and to work autonomously using lifelong learning skills and personal development competencies.  

 

Specific objectives: 

1.Develop language knowledge and management in international settings.  

2.Understand, analyse and adapt language and cultural communication strategies to new media.  

3.Analyse, evaluate and apply innovative business and administration skills, in the areas of economics, management, marketing and law. 

 

Learning Outcomes: 

1.Communicate effectively and convincingly on a factual-supported basis, both orally and in writing.   

2.Understand the importance of language management for international business.    

3.Use languages appropriately and proficiently in an international business context. 

4.Analyse, evaluate and comprehend the relationship between language, culture and management in the development of language strategies for international business.  

5.Conduct and apply Linguistic Auditing to an organization.    

6.Manage language diversity in global business teams.   

7.Research corporate and management issues, which may relate to overall strategy or a specific management function, that require familiarity with a range of data, research sources and appropriate methodologies. 

8.Identify the core requirements to successfully conduct international marketing activities. 

 

The graduate profile is that of an intercultural mediator, with a strong experience in intercultural management and the internationalization of companies, who can function as an analyst expert in intercultural and, international markets and trade negotiations. The aim is to train competent professionals in several languages, able to manage the relationships between actors of various cultures. Additionally, they should be able to express their skills in those companies that have, or intend to have, an international activity or in international organizations and NGOs.
