Coventry University has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.
For an all-round business education try a Business Administration degree. Coventry has one of the largest business schools in Europe. Aimed at students who have a passion for business and an aptitude for organisation and management, this degree prepares students for a wide range of roles in the dynamic international business environment. It offers a solid grounding in core business and then allows the flexibility to specialise in key areas. We offer an outstanding student experience – achieving 100% satisfaction overall and with both the teaching and enthusiasm of lecturers in the latest National Student Survey (NSS). Our students benefit from opportunities to study, work and visit in UK and overseas organisations, developing a useful range of professional skills that are attractive to future employers. The course reflects business thought and practice with an emphasis, where appropriate, on the application of theory to real business situations, challenges and issues. Case studies will be used to give you an in-depth understanding of how the different parts of an organisation support one another. Previously, for example, students have considered the project management issues involved with festivals like Glastonbury, the ethical concerns in the supply chains of cut flowers and the challenges of managing mega-events, such as the Olympic Games. Our aim is to provide you with a business degree qualification that equips you for careers in local, national or international markets, encouraging you to go beyond an understanding of management theories to also be able to apply them confidently to real life situations. We strive to create a study environment which will encourage you to build up your awareness of the dynamic business environment and how current events impact this with real life case studies and current events analysed in seminars and used to explore the challenges of putting theory into practice. In addition, our strong focus on providing opportunities for gaining work experience, supported by both our careers service and our Faculty Employability Tutors, helps you gain the skills, knowledge and networks that build the exceptional profile employers are attracted to. Year 1 In the first year, all of our students study core modules to provide a really solid overview of how businesses work and the key business functions of human resources, marketing and finance. Year 2 In the second year, you will delve into subjects in more detail and are able to select two optional modules. Optional Placement Year After the second year, you have the option of taking a sandwich year on an industrial placement or spending 12 months studying abroad to broaden your international perspective. Final Year In your final year, you can select three optional modules to allow you to tailor the course to your interests and the subjects most relevant to your career aspirations.
