6 08 Why Cardiff Business School? Cardiff: The City 09 Why Cardiff Business School? Cardiff: The City Cardiff: The City Cardiff is one of Europe s youngest capital cities. Compact, green, friendly and full of life, it provides a first class environment in which to live and study. As the capital city of Wales, Cardiff has an impressive range of leisure, sporting and cultural amenities, many of which are of an international standard. The city boasts world-class concert venues in Cardiff Motorpoint Arena and the Wales Millennium Centre, and the Millennium Stadium provides the focus for international sporting events. It has an Olympic standard white-water rafting centre and the SWALEC cricket stadium plays host to international test matches. Culturally, Cardiff is well catered for with the National Museum and Gallery of Wales, several theatres and the historic Cardiff Castle which, set in parkland, occupies the centre of the city. The city has a vibrant shopping centre, numerous cinemas and restaurants and great pubs and music venues. The recently extended St David s Shopping Centre is now one of the busiest shopping centres in the European Union with nearly two hundred shops, stores and restaurants. The development of Cardiff Bay is a major attraction and is home to the Welsh Assembly. Cardiff is a compact city with large areas of parkland and good local transport. Unlike many other cities, it offers easy access to the countryside, coast and mountains. The Brecon Beacons National Park is only a 30-minute drive from Cardiff and the Glamorgan Heritage Coast is within easy reach. The city is also easily accessible by road or rail from other parts of Britain. Cardiff combines the practical advantages of a small, friendly, inexpensive city with the cultural and recreational amenities of a successful and modern capital. Such is the quality of the Cardiff experience that in a recent survey, a large majority of current students said that they would like to remain in the city after graduation. Most of the University s academic schools are housed in handsome stone buildings set around two parks and within strolling distance of the River Taff, which flows south into Cardiff from the Brecon Beacons National Park. The Business School is a ten minute walk from the city s main shopping and entertainment area. Come and see for yourself Cardiff benefits from excellent road and rail links with Britain s other major towns and cities. London, for example, is two hours by train, and the M4 links both the west and south of England, as well as west Wales. Travel to the Midlands and the North is equally convenient. The journey by road from Birmingham, for example, takes only two hours. The main coach and railway stations are both centrally placed and Cardiff also benefits from an international airport.

The shopping centres are very close to all residences and there is a vibrant night life that makes the whole student experience even more enjoyable. The city, in my opinion, goes a long way to give students the much needed work-life balance and I would have it no other way. 01 The Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff Bay. 02 Cardiff s Civic Centre. 03 The Millennium Stadium in the heart of the city. 04 View of Wales s beautiful coastline.

12 20 Degree Programmes Accounting & Finance 21 Degree Programmes Accounting & Finance BSc Accounting with a European Language The degree in Accounting with a European Language combines the main elements of an Accounting degree with French, German or Spanish. The first year provides the essential accounting and related modules that form the basis of a degree in Accounting together with one module in the chosen language. Year 2 covers core elements of Accounting, but gives equal weight to the study of the language element. The study of translation and oral skills provides an ideal preparation for the third year which is spent abroad. During their year at a University abroad, students will be taught in the language they are studying as part of their degree. In the fourth year, when they return to Cardiff, students will concentrate on Accounting modules, while taking one module in their chosen language to retain the competency which they have acquired during the year abroad. In addition to taking the core modules, students have the opportunity to choose modules in areas where they have a particular interest, such as public sector accounting, international accounting or international business and marketing. Overall, the Accounting with a European Language degree prepares students for careers in Accounting with the added advantages of an ability to work in another European language, as well as in English.

Alongside this, the programme covers strategy, information, finance and accounting, operations and marketing to ensure that students have a general foundation in the business disciplines as well as the HRM specialism.

The first year provides the core building blocks of management and business subjects, together with one module in the relevant language. Year two develops from this base, giving equal weighting to the business and language subjects. Students continue to focus on the core Business Management modules, whilst the language component concentrates on expression, translation and business language, providing the ideal preparation for the third year which is spent abroad. Here, students will be taught level two Business Management in their chosen language. The fourth year, when students return to Cardiff, extends the business and management content of the degree with three core and three optional modules, together with one module to maintain the language input.

It is also an important country, particularly in business. Its economy is roughly the same as those of the United Kingdom, France and Italy combined. Whilst it holds on to many of its traditions and customs, in many areas it is also changing. Businesses and other organisations continue to need graduates who can understand Japan. Japan also needs graduates who understand its language and ways. The Business Studies and Japanese course is designed to provide students with a sound knowledge of business, enable them to become proficient in Japanese and to gain a clear understanding of Japan itself. This is a four year degree of which the third year is spent in Japan. The programme is recognised as being one of the best in Europe. In the first two years of the BSc degree scheme in Business Studies and Japanese you take modules from the Business Management degree scheme and begin your study of the Japanese language and Japan (studying the same Japanese modules as those done by the Joint Honours BA students). During this time approximately twice as much class contact time is spent studying Japanese as is spent on the business studies modules. The year in Japan is spent studying in a Japanese university with which Cardiff University has an exchange agreement. By this stage you should have a sufficient command of the spoken language to operate comfortably in Japan and gain the maximum benefit from your period of study. In the final year, you return to Cardiff to continue with your business studies and also to further augment your knowledge of the Japanese language and Japan. There is still a significant shortage of persons with competence in the Japanese language and an understanding of the intricacies of Japanese culture and working practices. As a result there is a considerable range of career prospects, particularly in the commercial sector. Graduates of the different degree schemes with Japanese tend to be in high demand because of this. Japan was by far the most interesting culture I have experienced. I was placed in Keio University in Tokyo, and I was living in really clean, convenient accommodation only two stops by train from buzzing Shibuya. Studying Japanese has been very rewarding; the staff are friendly and very helpful. Being able to live and experience the Japanese culture definitely separates this course from others and it makes university seem all the more worthwhile. I recommend it to anyone interested in Japan or an Eastern language.
