Are you looking for a career in business management or the legal profession? Our Business Management and Law course is a practical, relevant and academically balanced course, developed with employers to meet local and national demand in two of the fastest growing sectors of the economy. This course builds on our existing successful degrees within Business and Law and brings together the key knowledge, skills and attributes required for success across a range of graduate careers, with a focus on roles requiring knowledge of the application of law in a business context. Taught by experienced lecturers who have worked at a high level in the business and legal professions, you’ll gain an understanding of the legal and regulatory context in which businesses operate and develop an awareness of law and legal advice within the core business functions. You’ll study subjects critical for successful business operation, including people management, accounting and audit, as well as areas of law that relate to business management such as contract law, property and land, and torts (an important fundamental area of law). In your final year, you’ll be able to study the areas you find most interesting through a choice of business and law modules. We place an emphasis on employability and preparing you for life after graduation. We’ll teach you directly applicable skills for the workplace in contracts, regulation and legal principles. Professional work placements are integral to your degree and you’ll have the opportunity to conduct a business research project with an employer in your final year, so you’ll graduate with relevant work experience and valuable employer links. This degree aims to prepare you for graduate roles within Business Management or the legal profession, including management consultant, human resources manager, quality assurance manager or business lawyer. You’ll also develop transferable skills, such as an ability to focus on detail and logic, that are highly valued by employers across a wide variety of industries.
