Oxford Brookes University is now accepting applications for a new degree programme that has been developed alongside BMW Group.

The BSc (Hons) Business and Automotive Management is a specialist course within Oxford Brookes University Business School, intended specifically for those wishing to pursue a career in the automotive sector.

The course, which lasts four years, is split between Oxford Brookes University and OTH Regensburg, the Technical University of Applied Sciences, Germany. The first year is spent in Oxford, and the second in Germany. The third year is spent in work placement at BMW Group Plant Regensburg and Mini’s Oxford plant for six months each. The final year is spent at Oxford Brookes.

The course is intended to prepare students for a career in the automotive industry, and is specifically designed to meet the needs of BMW as a potential employer. The BMW Group is willing to support students’ learning and development throughout the course thanks to a mentorship scheme.

Dr Tony Gibbs, head of the department of business and management at Oxford Brooks University, said: “Our Business School is known internationally for its learning and teaching and Oxford Brookes has an outstanding track record for producing employable graduates.

“I am delighted to be able to offer prospective students this unique and exciting opportunity to study with Brookes, BMW Group and OTH Regensburg which will, no doubt, lead to interesting career opportunities for the graduates.”
