Course summary

This degree builds on the industry-recognised HNC/D programmes. All first year entrants will start on the HNC, with the exception of Inverness College UHI students who will commence on degree year 1 (CertHE). At all other campuses you will access the degree through an HN route where first year is the HNC. Applicants already holding a relevant HNC qualification can apply for direct entry to the second year. This programme is a high quality, broad-based qualification which provides the fundamental knowledge and skills required for the contemporary business environment. In this ambiguous global economy this programme will enable students to not only consider business holistically, but also undertake complex problem solving - comprehending the interconnectedness of decision making; and effectively communicating those decisions to a wide range of internal and external stakeholders. In years one and two, a programme of core modules is followed to ensure that a solid foundation is laid down. In years three and four you can choose to study for a generic degree in business and management or you can focus on one particular aspect such as human resource management, finance, marketing, enterprise, digital communication or tourism. This will allow you to exit at the end of the fourth year with a themed award, for example: Business Management with Human Resource Management.
