This management degree attracts a wide range of people, including those interested in or working as administrators, clerical workers and managers from both the public and private sectors, as well as self-employed people and those wishing to gain specific knowledge of management and business.  We combine lectures delivered by reputable experts in their field with tutorial/seminar sessions which give you a chance to interact with your peers and develop insights into analysing and interpreting a wide range of business decisions. We often use real-life case studies and guest speakers from the industry to help you gain the knowledge and practical skills required from the job market, in any private or public organisation.
