Business Management (with foundation year)

Course summary

How is Hull University Business School different from other business schools? For starters, our independent accreditations (including AMBA and AACSB) are held by fewer than 5% of the world’s 13,000 business programmes. That places us, and you, in an exclusive club. But it’s our approach that really sets us apart… Here, you’ll tackle real problems, find real solutions and do real business from day one. Through live projects, placements and internships for the likes of Team GB, Pepsi, Tesco, Microsoft, Marks & Spencer and Jaguar Land Rover, to name a few. Or by helping SMEs with their challenges via our Business Clinic.  You'll gain a rock-solid grounding in how to run a successful and sustainable business. Plus, you get the option to switch direction after your first year, and delve deeper into a specialism that could be your career: marketing, entrepreneurship, human resource management, logistics… Official Team GB partners Did you know that the University of Hull is the official University Partner of Team GB? Our united belief is that anyone, with the right opportunities ahead and a dedicated team behind, can achieve extraordinary things. This is what our partnership with Team GB is built on. Extraordinary is in you – and we’ll help you find it. What does this mean for you? It means that whether you’re studying sports science, or marketing, or logistics, or healthcare, or engineering, you’ll be able to gain invaluable experience through this unique partnership. We are working with Team GB to create opportunities for volunteering and work experience, to get involved with meet-and-greet sessions with Olympians, host on-campus talks from guest speakers and so much more. It’s an extraordinary partnership, and you won’t find it anywhere else. Find out more at
