Our BA combines rigorous academic study with practical skills. The course is unique in structure: most courses with a year abroad last four years - we deliver ours in three. We've carefully chosen our partner universities so that the quality of education you receive on the year abroad is the same high quality that you get at Sheffield and, crucially, counts towards your final degree classification. Year one modules give you a comprehensive understanding of core business, including behaviour at work, quantitative methods, marketing, strategic management, business ethics and economics. Your study includes skills-based modules that cover essential accounting and decision-making techniques. In the second year, you'll build a keen understanding of global business with the opportunity to study abroad at one of our partner institutions. We have partners in Australia, Canada, Europe, Hong Kong, New Zealand, Singapore and the USA, and no matter where you spend your year abroad, all the teaching is in English. All modules that you choose at partner institutions will need to be approved by Sheffield University Management School. In order to meet the requirements for the study abroad aspect of this course, you must pass the first year with an average grade of 60%, with no failed modules on the first attempt. At Sheffield, we believe this is what you should be aiming for anyway. Students who don't achieve this transfer to our BA Business Management course and stay in Sheffield for the second year. For the third year of the course, you return to Sheffield and continue their business management studies with a strong international focus. Placement years You can add a placement year (sometimes called a year in industry) to your degree after you arrive in Sheffield. Placements take place between your second and final year of study, and we add 'Degree with Employment Experience' to your course title to reflect your time in the workplace. The Management School is Triple Crown accredited by AMBA, EQUIS and AACSB.
