Course summary

Coventry Business School was rated as ‘excellent’ by Eduniversal, an annual ranking of Business Schools, in 2018, and we are also active members of the European Foundation for Management Development (EFMD) and Chartered Association of Business Schools (CABS), as well as being signatories to the United Nations Principles for Responsible Management Education (UN PRME) initiative.  Our students are attracted by the flexibility of the course, which provides an excellent grounding in the key areas of business, such as finance, human resource management, strategy, supply chain management and marketing, but then allows you to specialise as you progress depending on your interests and career aspirations, whether these relate to human resources, marketing, finance or supply chains, for example. Alternatively, you can choose to continue to study across the range of the functional areas of business. Our dedicated faculty comprises commercially-aware practitioners with expertise in all the business disciplines, who bring their professional and/or research expertise into teaching. Many have worked for firms such as Oxford Analytics, IHS Intelligence Consultancy and GDF Suez, occupying senior roles in business analysis, marketing, project management and research. We are looking for students who are curious about the business world, who want to develop strong networks between their peers and fully engage with the experts who teach them – not just our own faculty, but also the many industry experts who come to share their experiences and insight in topics as such as current HR challenges, managing the supply chains of mega-events and what graduate employers really want from new recruits.
