Bishop Grosseteste University has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.
Our BA (Hons) Business degree programme will enable you to develop a deep understanding of the wide spectrum of business-related subjects through a coherent range of modules that enable you to enhance and build your knowledge, skills and understanding as you go through each year. You will learn about how businesses develop strategic thinking, how they operationally function and what they need to consider in order to ensure that they are profitable and productive. Each year of the degree builds on the one before; in year one you focus on understanding the fundamentals of business including economics and finance, leadership, the development of business ideas and how businesses run. In year two you deepen your knowledge of particular elements of business practice such as human resource management and marketing. In year three the focus is on extending your knowledge and skills to the wider world, and you will consider the psychology of organisations and what leadership for a changing world, as well as how businesses of all sizes need to develop their corporate strategy. You will also extend your understanding of the international perspective through considering entrepreneurship in a wider context. There is no one-size-fits-all method of teaching at BGU – we shape our methods to suit each subject and each group, combining the best aspects of traditional university teaching with innovative techniques to promote student participation and interactivity. You will be taught in a variety of ways, from lectures, tutorials and seminars, to practical workshops, coursework and work-based placements. Small group seminars and workshops will provide you with an opportunity to review issues raised in lectures, and you will be expected to carry out independent study. We recognise that individuals come from a wide range of backgrounds and experiences, so we use a variety of assessment strategies on our courses. The BA (Hons) Business degree aims to equip you with the knowledge and understanding to develop a career, locally, nationally or internationally, in the business sector. Potential destinations could include retail, public sector management, or project management. Some graduates might choose to start up their own venture as a result of this programme and our enterprise area, BG Futures, could help to support that process.
