All organisations need people with strong business skills. At the end of your course, you’ll be equipped with the skills they need – a business professional with a global mind-set, confident, able to lead teams, managing operations, develop strategies, aware of key sustainability challenges and making leadership decisions. You will learn how to spot opportunities, adapt to change, assess impact on stakeholders, and understand when and how to take risks. You’ll gain a broad understanding of the business world, together with fundamental skills like team-working and problem-solving. Later, you’ll have the opportunity to specialise in areas that interest you most. In your second year you have the opportunity to specialise with 30 credits worth of units in either Management, Human Resource Management or Marketing.
