About this course


Course option

2.0years

Full-time | 2020

This course is based around the two threads of management and leadership. The programme aims to develop students’ skills in both areas. The management thread provides the necessary underpinning knowledge and understanding of how businesses are set up, operate and are managed and lead. The leadership thread focuses on developing confident leaders, with effective interpersonal and communication skills and problem-solving skills. This thread places a strong emphasis on team work coupled with self-reliance. By the end of the course students will have developed the skills needed to pursue careers in business, set up in business themselves or continue to top up their degree at Sheffield Hallam University. Assessment methods include assignments, exams, presentations and group work to allow students to experience different pressures and learn to respond to different challenges.

Applicants who are studying for SHU-validated foundation degrees will receive an offer for their designated full time honours degree progression route at Sheffield Hallam University provided that they submit an application via UCAS by the deadline in January of the year in which they wish to study. Applicants who are studying for SHU-validated foundation degrees and who wish to progress to part-time study on their designated honours degree progression route will apply directly to the University.

The offer made by the University will be subject to:
Successful completion of the foundation degree programme
Submission of a satisfactory personal statement and reference
Meeting the University's literacy and numeracy requirements
Satisfying any additional specific course requirements for entry to the designated progression route (e.g. successful completion of associated bridging studies or any non-academic conditions).
Offers are made subject to the availability of courses and the University Terms and Conditions.

Alternatively, students may wish to complete their degree at The Sheffield College by taking our one-year top up course in Business Management.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
