This course is part of a wider portfolio of Business Management degrees all of which commence by building a solid foundation in the core principles of business and management. However we understand that the choice can be daunting and so we’ve designed our courses with flexibility in mind allowing students on this programme the ability to switch to any of the Business Management pathways (with the exception of Business Management with Law) at the end of their first year. The support on our course is great. We can visit our lecturers in office hours and we can have a personal tutor so if we have any questions about work or even personal issues we can talk to them.
