Business and management

Overview
This versatile business management degree gives you the space to develop your management skills. Whatever your goals are, you can build your business expertise before beginning a fulfilling career.

Tailor your course to your career
This is the kind of course that allows you to shape your studies towards exactly what you want to do in the future. Whatever your career ambitions, you can tailor your studies to fit your plan. Whether you want to join a governmental organisation, an established business, or even start your own, the career options with our degree are virtually limitless.

In your first year, you’ll find yourself studying everything from financial and managerial concepts to people management and marketing theory. In your second year, you can choose modules that suit your interest, such as HR, finance, project management, supply chain management and more.

Not just business theory, it's also business skill
During your course you'll build the professional skill set needed to deal with the challenges you'll face in the fast-paced corporate world, from financial skills enabling you to make monetary decisions to supply management skills allowing you to keep a business operating. Developing your theory in the lecture halls, you'll study the operations of organisations, strategy, design & production, resource acquisition, business processes and more.

This course is perfect for you if you want to learn how to apply theory to practice in a business environment. With our innovative start-up and business game modules, you learn on the go as you start your own pop-up business or take part in a business simulation.

Once you’ve built up that foundation of knowledge, you’ll have the opportunity to undertake a paid work placement. Here you'll put the theory you’ve learnt into practice, developing your working knowledge of business and figuring out what you would like to specialise in.

We'll support your entrepreneurial spirit
A BA in business management will allow you to start a career in a wide variety of roles. Our graduates have gone on to work for the likes of Foxtons, M&S, and Chase Anderson in roles in HR, operations, sales, investments and more.

During your course, you’ll get personalised support from your Personal Tutor, Student Learning Assistant, and Graduate Academic Assistant. Their first-hand experience in your subject area means they understand how to best support you.

But the support doesn’t end there. In our Enterprise Development Hub, we will support you to start your own business and develop your budding entrepreneurial skills, while you can also become a student member of the Chartered Management Institute. Your success is important to us and we'll support you every step of the way.

Management, finance and business roles are common, but it's a good idea to ask tutors what previous graduates taking specific courses went on to do when you're at an open day.
