Develop the theoretical and practical skills you need to make your way in the business world.
This course will give you a solid foundation in business and management theory, as well as the opportunity to develop the practical skills and analytical techniques used in different sectors. Graduate and you’ll be more than ready for the professional workplace and the challenges of the business world.
During the course you’ll study and practise all the main areas of management, including human resources, marketing, accounting and finance, and information management. Modules on contemporary issues such as globalisation, sustainability and social and demographic change will put it all into context - as will content looking at commercial strategy and behaviour.
You can personalise your studies with a wide range of specialist modules, so there’s every opportunity to prepare for a specific industry sector, job or profession. Key figures from international industry and business advise us on course content - so you can be certain you’re gaining the skills employers expect.
We use innovative training methods, including simulations, workshops and business games, to make you career-ready. You’ll leave us with a firm grasp of business IT applications, qualitative and quantitative analysis, project research, planning and management, and the techniques successful business people use when leading teams, presenting or networking.
On top of this, you’ll develop an ingrained ability to manage your own future learning and professional development: a crucial quality if you’re to adapt and succeed within the fast-changing commercial environment.
You’ll be studying in an internationally renowned business school that has a very active research and consultancy programme. This will give you valuable exposure to leading businesses and the latest thinking.
With its strong core content and flexible range of options this course can prepare you for a wide range of industries, professions and careers.
Some of our modules will qualify you for exam exemptions with professional bodies. Organisations such as ACCA are closely involved with the school and leading industry figures advise us on course content.
We’ll assess your progress through exams, coursework, essays and your performance in practical assignments.
The coursework element includes problem-solving activities, consultancy projects, presentations, group work and reports.
