Want to get a job in business and management? Our BA Business Management (Professional Practice) degree allows you to take a year-long placement in industry during your course. During your final year you will work full-time with an employer in the business management sector alongside finishing your degree through block release and blended delivery. This approach lets you put your learning into practice at an early stage and build further experience in the workplace before you graduate. BA (Hons) Business Management offers a dedicated management route and three distinct associated programmes, which allow you to specialise in a specific area, while still learning the core skills of business and management. Consultancy enables you to gain an insight into the theory and application of the industry, Supply Chain Management is perfect if you wish to seek a deeper insight into the operation of the supply chain, while the Enterprise pathway provides a route for you if you are interested in the development and sustainability of new business operations. These courses will enhance your understanding of organisations and the environment in which they operate, will prepare you for a career in business and management, and enhance your skills to become a lifelong learner. Your learning will embrace the development and operation of business markets, the management of key resources including human capital, financial management, strategic management and cultural awareness. In addition, you will gain an insight into digital business exploring how technology has remodelled the business world and reflect on the accompanying issues around social responsibility and ethical behaviour.
