Abstract
This research was conducted to investigate the perceptions of English language needs of undergraduate business students and their business faculty at the British University in Egypt. Data were drawn from four sources: (1) a student questionnaire; (2) a teacher questionnaire; (3) a round of semi-structured interviews for students and (4) a round of semi-structured interviews for teachers. The findings have shown that there are a number of curriculum components for each language skill that should be incorporated in the syllabus for each English module that students would find interesting and relevant to their needs.

Keywords: language needs; second language; curriculum; needs analysis
