The Higher National Certificate in Business equips students with knowledge and skills across a range of business and management topics, including human resource management, leadership, accounting, entrepreneurship and marketing. Students will learn how the subjects link together to form business strategy and have the opportunity to find out which specialisms suit their own interests and ambitions. The course is ideal for students who are already working in industry as well as students wishing to progress to a range of careers, such as management, administration, personnel, marketing, accounting and law. It can be studied on a full-time or part-time basis.
Modules studied: • Business and The Business Environment • Marketing Processes & Planning • Human Resource Management • Leadership and Management • Accounting Principles • Managing a Successful Business Project • Entrepreneurial Ventures • Business Law
The programme is assessed through the submission of written essays, reports and reflective logs, a series of project based practical work-based assessments. Formative feedback will support student progression in both written work and business outcomes. Self and peer assessment in convener/critique situations will be an essential element of all projects and the feedback from these will enhance student achievement and progression. The programme allows 120 credits at each level.
