Our Fast-track Business Management programme helps you fulfil your potential by developing the skills, knowledge and experience needed to build your career in the competitive world of business. You’ll develop analytical and problem solving skills through focusing on the practical aspects of management including strategy, people management, ethics and corporate social responsibility, sustainability, decision making, and project and operations management. You can also opt to focus on a particular field and graduate with a specialist named degree. Your final year project will enable you to work in partnership with companies on real business-related issues to enhance your career-readiness and gives you the opportunity to specialise in an area that really interests you. You’ll get the chance to put theory into practice during consultancy projects and you can boost your employability with real-world experience. Studying Business Management at Plymouth will stand you in good stead no matter what career path you follow. Our students graduate ready to face business challenges in all sorts of settings and roles, from project management to human resource management, logistics, operations and marketing, and our Business Management students are in high demand. All undergraduate modules within Plymouth Business School have integrated within them a CV building activity, for example, through micro-credentialing; real world problem-based learning; or embedded direct employer activity. We do this because we know it is key to student academic and graduate success.
