From day one, your future career is our focus. We believe in hands-on experiences to build your confidence and skills, maintaining a good balance of theory and practice. You’ll have opportunities to apply your knowledge to live briefs and real projects, working with real businesses who want your advice.

Our BSc (Hons) Business Management and Information Technology blends academic study from both Business Management and Computing in order to help you enhance your employability and future-proof your career.

**Why study this subject?**
In a rapidly changing technological world where Artificial Intelligence becomes more widespread, it is imperative that businesses use data to support their decision-making to ensure the success of their organisation.

A degree in Business Management and Information Technology equips you with technical ability, data and human discipline and prepares you for this type of scenario.

If you’re looking to develop a good understanding of Business Management in a changing world of volatility, uncertainty and change, but also appreciate the role IT and data can have in that ambiguous business setting, then a degree in Business Management and Information Technology could be for you.

**Why study at Buckinghamshire New University?**
Carefully shaped to meet industry needs, our degree will help enable you to combine technical skills with high level business knowledge.

On this course, you'll acquire a wide range of skills and competencies that are useful for efficiently handling real-life, practical problems. You'll also develop your ability to think critically and will be able to analyse and evaluate solutions to complex scenarios.

We'll encourage you to develop the intellectual skills necessary to contribute to effective business practice and problem solving. In addition, you'll also gain a deep understanding of technical decisions involving commercial computing and develop an awareness of various types of technologies. We’ll also help you develop your soft skills such as teamwork, leadership skills, problem solving and creative thinking.

We can’t predict the future - but we can give you the skills and knowledge to help you become a rising talent within business, government or a non-profit organisation.

**What will I study?**
On this programme, you'll:

- develop knowledge and understanding of key business foundation disciplines

- develop the ability to evaluate the range of activities within the key business functional areas and their interrelationship

- benefit from solving problems by clarifying complex questions, considering alternative solutions and critically evaluating outcomes

- be able to recognise the business, industrial and commercial context in which computer systems are deployed, with particular regard to their usability

- develop your ability to systematically and critically analyse and discriminate between options for various computer-based problems and devise appropriate solutions.

**How will I be taught and assessed?**
To make sure you have the latest knowledge, our academic staff keep themselves up-to-date. Most come from industry, and our links can give you practical experience of business life. Many of our staff are guest lecturers, conference speakers and content contributors so you’ll be learning from real leaders in their fields.

We also welcome a wealth of guest speakers; top professionals from across industry come to Buckinghamshire New University to help you understand how your degree applies to working in business, and how you can learn from their experiences.

Throughout your studies you’ll hear stories from people working in businesses of all sizes. This gives you the chance to learn about various job functions and different corporate cultures, and ultimately, your regular exposure to industry helps make you employable from the moment you graduate.
