Business and management

The Business and Management degree is a rigorous programme of study on the purpose and functioning of organisations and the associated global business environment. Alongside this academic focus, there are also significant practical elements designed to enhance your understanding of the roles, expectations and skills required to excel in your chosen fields of work.

The degree commences with introduction to management and the interrelationships between organisations and society at large. Technology, ethics, and the environment are all considered, and we also cover a grounding in economics, statistics and accounting. In the second year, the functional operations of organisations are the focus, and the final year integrates this study in the capstone strategic management module. Along with ample opportunity to select electives at all stages, you’re also able to complete a dissertation or practical business project in the final year.

If desired, students can opt to undertake a year abroad, or a year in industry to further increase their employability. No previous study of business is required or assumed.

As only a small number of students take courses in this subject area, there isn't much information on what graduates do when they finish, so bear that in mind when you review any stats. 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.

What about your long term prospects?

Looking further ahead, below is a rough guide for what graduates went on to earn.
