Business with work placement at University of Bath - UCAS

Course summary

Learn the practical, analytical and critical skills you need to become a modern business leader. Get real professional experience with two placements. This flexible business and management degree is different. You will complete two six-month placements with separate companies rather than 12 months with one. Experience of two roles and businesses will help you decide on your future career direction. A range of optional units will let you build your own pathway through the course. You’ll be able to specialise in certain subjects or take a broader approach. Whatever career path you want to take, there’s a route for you. You'll also learn about business as part of society, and the related social and environmental responsibilities. Year 1 Study fundamental business and management subjects including marketing, business analytics and accounting. These core units will help you decide your path through the rest of your degree. Year 2 Experience the working world earlier than on most degrees with a six-month placement in your first semester. In the second semester, you’ll pick from a range of optional units. You’ll also start to develop and practise your entrepreneurial abilities. Year 3 Continue to customise your course with more optional units. You’ll also work with a charity or NGO on an entrepreneurship action project. Get more practical work experience with your second six-month placement. Year 4 With no compulsory taught units, you’ll have the chance to study the final year that works best for you. For your Final Year Project, you’ll work in groups to tackle a real business issue for one of our partner organisations. In your final year you can apply for our International Academic Exchange programme. You'll gain international exposure by spending a semester studying abroad at one of our partner business schools.
