Studying Business Management is a great opportunity to gain a degree that is clearly focused on your long-term career prospects in a wide variety of contexts. Whether you are thinking of setting up your own business, working in a large corporation, the public sector or the ever growing tourist industry you will need to possess an understanding of how businesses operate and how skilled managers can contribute to their success. But management is also about people, and we will enable you to develop your own skills as a team player, a group member and ultimately as a manager of other people. Our suite of degrees allows you to specialise still further in specific aspects of business and management. So, if you develop an interest in marketing or in tourism, for example, you can take a degree that gives you this extra focus, which will then be specified on your degree certificate. You don’t have to make a decision about further specialisation until the end of Level 1, by which time you will have had a ‘taster’ of each area of the subject, giving you a firm basis upon which to make your decision. Remember, it’s all about choice: you choose your own direction, and we are there to help you make the right decision for you. There are also opportunities for you to study abroad for part of your degree; the University has connections with other institutions in various countries, including the USA, Australia and Europe.
Modules may include: Level 1: Organisation, Competition & Environment; Organisational Behaviour; Economics & Finance; Marketing & Operations Management; Tourism Industries. Level 2: Cultural & Heritage Tourism; International Finance; Marketing Practice; Travel & Tourism Marketing; Financial Reporting & Analysis; Human Resource Management; International Trade & Globalisation. Level 3: Consumer Behaviour ; e-Business; Business Ethics; Strategic Human Resource Management; Organisational Strategy & Decision Making. A full module list can be found on our website. In addition at the end of Level 2, all students undertake a work placement in an organisation of their choice or a university lead project. This provides an opportunity to test out possible career choices, gain a meaningful experience of life as a manager, project management experience and, potentially to get a career-relevant reference.
