Course summary

Focusing on the twin aspects of management and leadership, this course serves as an introduction to the world of business. We've worked tirelessly alongside our partners and stakeholders to create a course designed to give you the opportunity to develop the skills and knowledge you should need to thrive in business, be it at local, national or international level, public, private or third sector. The degree has also been developed to closely reflect the competencies promoted by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI*). Upon completion of the course, you can progress to become a member of the CMI, which will support your continuous professional development as your career progresses. Coventry University's accreditation with CMI is currently ongoing for the relevant modules, but is frequently reviewed and monitored by the CMI through their quality systems. If any changes occur with respect to our accreditation related to these modules, we will seek to notify applicants and students as soon as possible.

Course details


This course aims to give you a well-rounded understanding of organisations and their management, helping you to develop the skills and capabilities you should need to gain employment in, and respond to the challenges of, the contemporary business world. You’ll have the opportunity to adopt an enquiring, critical and reflective approach to a range of management and leadership issues as you learn how to effectively lead individuals and teams, and hone the learning approaches and academic skills you’ll put into practice as you continue, should you choose, to postgraduate study. During this course, you’ll tackle concepts such as multicultural and international engagement, innovation and digital fluency, and community contribution and responsibility. The course is designed with a strong emphasis on the practical and responsible application of management and leadership theory that upon successful completion will enable you to confidently embark on graduate employment and/or postgraduate study. There is also an emphasis on using case studies as a pedagogical approach to facilitate learning which is situated in real-life contexts. You’ll also be taught in a collaborative manner in order to mirror the kind of team working you’ll encounter when you enter employment.
