Business Management (Sustainability) (with a Placement Year) at Staffordshire University - UCAS

Course summary

Our Business Management with Sustainability course challenges the traditional interpretations of enterprise and will open your mind to a broad range of contemporary themes of sustainability in business. Our emphasis on ethical business and sustainability practices will position you to create long-lasting value for your organisation and you will learn the practical skills needed to become a responsible business leader. As you explore such topics as sustainable business development, governance and climate change and leadership strategy for social impact, we will prepare you for an exciting career in the fast-paced environment of business, whether your ambitions lie in working for a multinational company or for yourself. With the placement year option, you will take a year in industry usually based within an organisation in your subject area. These are generally started after the end of your studies in your second year. Undertaking a placement can be beneficial to your subject area knowledge and significantly enhance your employability after completion of your award.


In your first year, you will study six modules which are core across the Business Management portfolio. Studying within a multi-disciplinary context, you’ll learn in a collaborative manner and develop a deeper insight into the wider business environment. You’ll develop a firm foundation of the necessary knowledge, academic and professional skills which you’ll build upon in your second and third years. In the second year, you will study a further four core modules with the option of two specialist modules depending on your named award. If you are going to take a placement this will be included in between the second and third year. In the third and final year of your studies, you will develop further specialist knowledge through an additional three core modules, one specialist module and a final year consultancy project within your chosen specialism.

Assessment method

Assessment methods depend on the modules you will be studying. The primary methods of assessment are coursework and evaluative assignments, digital portfolio development, in-class tests, presentations (both individual and group) and examinations. Most modules include a Tutorial Assessment, which carry a weighting of around 10% and your attendance and participation in class will be reflected in the awarded mark.
