Subject

Business and management

Whether you dream of starting your own business, working in a large multi-national organisation or in one of thousands of small and medium-sized businesses this course provides you with valuable knowledge, skills and experience. The structure of our course is designed to offer you maximum flexibility to shape your studies according to the topics that interest you. It is designed to meet employers' needs and to create graduates who have a sound grasp of business and good transferable skills.

The course allows students to pursue specialist interests to some extent and relate these specialisms to professional requirements. The course enables students to appreciate the importance of the social, political, ethical, technological environmental and global contexts in which business operates. It also provides students with a range of opportunities to develop the attitudes, skills and abilities necessary to work in an international business environment and to develop an awareness and appreciation of different cultural values. Our lecturers will guide you as you develop your understanding of business strategy, finance, marketing, human resources and many more subjects. We will frequently bring in guest speakers who can give you an insight into how principles you are learning about can be put into practice.

During the programme we spend time working with you to think about the skills that employers need and how you can develop and evidence your abilities in order to get a job once you successfully complete the course. Internships, live projects with businesses and networking events are just some of the ways we make that happen.
