Interested in a career in business or banking, with a specific focus on China, one of the most important and dynamic economies in the world? Then this programme is suited to you.

In this programme, you will gain a strong grounding in management science including general management modules common to most first-degree management programmes including 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.


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.

In the first year, students take introductory modules only, moving on to intermediate level modules in the second year, and then to advanced modules in their final year.
