Business, Chinese and Spanish for UNI

I am an A level student studying Chinese Spanish and business, i want to continue these on to UNI, I have a rough idea of what i want to for work and that is working internationally in the business field with the added bonus of speaking the 3 most high demand languages. This is why i need to study all 3 as i do not want to be left as a teacher or a translator.

I have two questions and they are 1) what is the best way to achieve the end goal of what i want for work and 2) what are some of the best uni courses for this

I would like to do an MBA but i have seen you need work experience and i cannot find and degree apprenticeships for languages and business.

wait no way I I have found no one doing the same subjects as me.

I’m ngl Chinese a level is so so hard I’m struggling so much, I believe I can bring it back with lots of hard work but it’s just so annoying the PRE-U course was shut down as this one is so difficult the native speakers don’t always get top grades.

Idk if it’s the same for you but for me my Spanish level is so far beyond my Chinese, I can hold fluent conversations listen with ease but with Chinese no way near.

What are your plans for uni ??

btw I fully agree my Spanish speaking skills are waaayyy better ahahah and my situation with Chinese is super complicated- would be easier to explain it over text. Basically I didn’t have the option to do PRE-U and nor did I want to as I wanted the challenge of a qualification in a level Chinese. Would love to give you some tips for what I found work for me tho with the a level!!

Maybe you can go to China to get your further degree.

Your ambition to work internationally in the business field while leveraging your skills in Chinese, Spanish, and Business is commendable and well thought out. Here's how you can approach your goals and some potential university courses that might interest you:
1) **Achieving Your Career Goal:**
- **Further Education**: Pursue a bachelor's degree that complements your A-level subjects. Consider degrees in International Business, Business Management, or a language-specific business course (e.g., Chinese Business Studies).
- **Language Proficiency**: Ensure you achieve the highest level of language proficiency possible in Chinese and Spanish. Consider taking professional language exams to obtain certifications that are recognized globally.
- **Internships**: Seek internships during your studies that provide exposure to international business environments. This could be with multinational corporations, trade organizations, or businesses with significant international operations.
- **Networking**: Start building a professional network early. Attend business conferences, join student business organizations, and connect with professionals in the field.
- **Soft Skills**: Develop essential business skills such as negotiation, leadership, and cross-cultural communication.
- **Work Experience**: Gain experience in different roles within the business sector to understand various aspects of operations, marketing, sales, etc.
- **MBA**: After gaining work experience, an MBA can be a great asset. It's designed to develop management and leadership skills and can open doors to senior management positions.
2) **University Courses:**
- **International Business**: This degree focuses on the global aspects of business, including international trade, marketing, and management.
- **Business with a Language**: Some universities offer combined degrees where you can study business alongside a language, which could be ideal for your goals.
- **Modern Languages and Business**: A course that combines the study of modern languages with business modules, providing a comprehensive understanding of both.
- **Area Studies**: Consider degrees that focus on specific regions of the world, such as East Asian Studies or Latin American Studies, which often include language and business components.
- **Joint Honours**: Some universities allow you to create a Joint Honours degree, combining Business with either Chinese or Spanish.
Regarding your concern about finding degree apprenticeships that combine languages and business, it might be challenging, but not impossible. Here are some steps you can take:
- **Research**: Look for companies that operate internationally and may have a need for language skills in their business operations.
- **Customize**: Consider a standard business apprenticeship and supplement it with language courses or additional qualifications.
- **Innovate**: If you can't find the perfect fit, consider creating your own pathway by combining experiences and qualifications that align with your goals.
Remember, the path to your dream career may not always be straightforward, and it often requires flexibility and creativity. Keep an open mind, be proactive in seeking opportunities, and don't be afraid to explore different avenues that could lead you to your end goal.
