Business and management

Management studies

Develop the skills to become a successful entrepreneur in the rapidly changing world of business – and broaden your skills and experience by studying overseas – with our BSc Business and Management (Entrepreneurship and Innovation) with Study Year Abroad degree.

This four-year programme, taught by experts from Henley Business School, combines the rigour of a management degree with the creative spirit of entrepreneurship. You’ll gain the expertise to embark on your own business venture, with modules covering opportunity recognition and evaluation, financing, "growth-hacking", and resource management. You’ll enrich this learning and broaden your life experience with an integrated Study Year Abroad.

Your studies will provide:

- a solid foundation in business, marketing, and entrepreneurial finance

- practical entrepreneurial techniques, including lean start-up, business model generation, and design thinking

- hands-on experience in business development and sales

- the ability to manage and direct yourself as an entrepreneur

- the opportunity to create a business idea through the Entrepreneurial Project module.

In your final year, you will also have the option to run your own business with support and mentorship from the Henley Centre for Entrepreneurship.

Throughout your degree, you will also study the core disciplines that underpin business – including economics, psychology and sociology – and explore theories and concepts such as:

- international strategy

- organisational behaviour

- operations

- data analytics

- human resource management

- accounting.

You’ll learn through a combination of lectures, seminars, practical workshops, and self-guided study. This will provide the opportunity to discuss subject materials in an in-depth way with your lecturers and fellow students.
