Course summary

FdA Business will provide you with a range of intellectual, imaginative and investigative skills necessary to deal with the challenges and changes within a wide and diverse range of business environments. You will study a broad business curriculum, gaining an understanding of business theory and practice followed by developing specialisms in your area of interest. You will study a range of business topics, critical to the modern day manager or business owner/entrepreneur, and will benefit from the opportunity to gain a broad understanding of business theory and practice. Focusing on developing your understanding of the contemporary issues facing businesses locally and across the globe, you will use case studies and policy changes to apply your learning to real world practice. During the course, you will also create a business plan, with linked finance plans and marketing plans to help you to build valuable transferrable skills for the workplace. Students are encouraged to choose to link up with Brighter Cornwall to network and build their CV by undertaking business placements. Most of our students go on to complete our top-up degree BA (Hons) Business, Enterprise and Leadership, while those who do not choose to go on to further study have entered employment in a range of management positions and graduate traineeships. One group have also chosen to go in to business together using skills and ideas developed during the course.
