This foundation year has been designed to enhance your knowledge of business and management in advance of undergraduate study. You'll study a range of topics, and apply your skills on rewarding projects and assignments. After completing your foundation, you'll have everything you need for full honours degree study, and progress directly onto the BA Business and Management course. How you learn: All our courses are designed around a set of key principles based on engaging you with the world, collaborating with others, challenging you to think in new ways, and providing you with a supportive environment in which you can thrive. The course is suitable if you don't meet the entry requirements for our BA (Hons) Business and Management course, or you want extra preparation before starting degree-level study. You share the first year with other Sheffield Business School foundation year students, then move on to the degree. You will learn in a supportive, challenging and exciting environment. You will be based in Sheffield Business School, a vibrant, dynamic setting with excellent facilities and located in the heart of the city. You learn through:
  • lectures and seminars
  • case studies
  • presentations
  • self-directed study
  • work placements
  • activities and events
In the foundation year, you'll study wider business topics, while specialising in your chosen subject area. You'll learn useful skills such as academic writing, work in diverse teams and learn to utilise a wide variety of data sources. In doing so, you'll fully prepare yourself for undergraduate study. Applied learning - Degree preparation After the foundation year, you will be ready to start the full degree. BA Business and Management is an engaging, challenging course where you will learn to excel in your field, under expert tutelage and with fantastic opportunities for progression, networking and work placements throughout. Placement opportunities You will have the opportunity to arrange a work placement in the second year of your full degree. This gives you a real-world experience to prepare you for your future career — improving your business acumen, self-management, contacts and interpersonal skills. Live projects On the BA degree, there are a range of projects, business simulations and client-led tasks that will allow you to apply your knowledge to real-life scenarios. You'll improve your analytical mindset, learning agility and critical thinking through these activities.
