Is specialising early on in my higher education degree a good idea? 1

One of the first major decisions we make after graduating high school or A-level college is deciding on which higher education degree to study.

On average graduates in the UK earn £500,000 more in their lifetimes than non-graduates, so it’s certainly a wise way of furthering your potential. But with so many degree options out there you are faced with a tough choice!

For prospective students who want to enter the workforce with transferable skills and a big picture understanding of the nature of industry, we recommend taking a business-focused course.

Before they enroll, our students often ask our faculty whether they should focus on a particular area or subject early on. We advise that specialising at an early stage can be a huge advantage. While some might argue that taking a more generalised business degree leaves your options open, the truth is a specialised degree simply takes your understanding and skills and helps you apply them to a specific context.

In a nutshell, bachelor’s degree with a specialisation opens more doors, and closes none. So let’s take a look at the bachelor’s and master’s degree specialisation options available to you here at ESEI International Business School.

What’s on offer at ESEI?

Business Administration and additional specialisation in Hospitality Management

If you decide to take our bachelor’s degree with an additional specialisation in hospitality management, you will develop your knowledge and understanding of business and will be very well placed to begin a career in a growing industry.
You might also choose to further your education in a related area, too. Some students decide to continue with ESEI by taking our Master in Tourism and Hospitality Management programme, as they have already laid the foundations to do so.

What’s more, Barcelona is the ideal spot to take a bachelor’s degree in hospitality and a master’s in tourism because it has a thriving tourism industry, as we explain in our article, Barcelona: World Number One Destination for Tourism Students?

Business Administration and additional specialisation in Global Business Management

Our degree in Business Administration and additional specialisation in Global Business Management is a top choice for students who are keen on international business, the digital nomad way of life, and those who want to start a career working in multinational corporations.

The specialisation sets graduates apart immediately and paves the way for a position in a top enterprise and is a great beginning to an exciting and well-rewarded career.
However, if you still want to further your studies, this degree leads nicely into our Master in International Relations and International Business. In this master’s degree you will become an expert in politics and international economics, and will gain a deep understanding of how these interplay and affect businesses and startups.

Business Administration and additional specialisation in Marketing Management

Our degree in Business Administration and additional specialisation in Marketing Management is an in depth programme with hands-on modules and real-world applications. Students who take this course not only develop strong foundations in business, but understand how to apply advertising strategy, learn in the ins and outs of social media marketing, financial management and other key skills.

Armed with leadership and organisation skills, graduates are well placed to go straight into a career in marketing management, or continue their studies at ESEI or in other universities around the world.

We recommend looking at our Master in Digital Marketing and Master in Marketing and Communication programmes.

Master’s programmes with specialisations

At ESEI we offer a number of specialised Master’s degree programmes. These courses are ideal for students who want to continue their studies and set themselves apart from other graduates and improve their long-term career prospects when they enter the workforce full-time.

For candidates with industry experience, on the other hand, these master’s courses can be the ideal way to shift gears in your career or to change direction entirely.

● Master in Digital Marketing
● Master in Marketing and Communication
