Course summary

Become a responsible leader of global business. Do you want to be at the forefront of modern enterprise? Our BA (Hons) Business Management and Sustainability course challenges the traditional interpretations of enterprise and will open your mind to a broad range of contemporary themes in business. Our emphasis on ethical business and sustainability will position you to create long-lasting value for your organisation and you will learn the practical skills needed to become a responsible business leader. At Staffordshire Business School we provide a streamlined teaching method, allowing you to focus on one module at a time. To allow true immersion in each stage of your learning, you will study one topic over a five-week period and receive your results before starting the next module. Our approach focuses on individual skills and will develop your expertise as an independent learner and problem solver, preparing you for a fast-paced, focused career in business. You will be taught via a combination of lectures, tutorials, industry visits and independent study. A typical 20 credit module will include a week of moderated online preparation, three weeks of class where you will attend campus (a combination of physically and virtually), usually for no more than two consecutive days per week for lectures, tutorials and other activities, and one week for revision and assessment. At Staffordshire University we place great emphasis on preparing you for the careers of the future, and as a student at Staffordshire Business School you will study the full spectrum of contemporary management and finance. You will use resources including books, journals and digital databases, social media resource banks and more to immerse yourself in each discipline and you will be challenged to picture what the business landscape of the future will be.
