Business Management
The world of Business Management is fast-moving and dynamic: Business organisations are facing unprecedented change and complex challenges both within the UK and globally. This demands that students who enter the business sector understand the dynamics of the business environment and how organisations operate in increasingly uncertain situations. The Business Management degree at Liverpool Hope University examines small to medium-sized enterprises to global multi-national companies – public, private, not-for- profit with a focus on business principles, organisational dynamics and management processes.

Liverpool Hope Business School has an enviable reputation for developing students with sound theoretical principles, thorough understanding of contemporary business practices and informed by the latest research. The strong links we have with professional bodies such as the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) and Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) ensure you are well prepared for the world of work.

This in-depth degree gives you the opportunity to understand how businesses operate and the ethical and social impact they have on communities. An experienced, student-focused team will develop your understanding of this business context and develop the critical business skills that future employers will demand.

Special Educational Needs
Studying Special Educational Needs at Liverpool Hope University will enable you to understand a range of different learning needs and will provide you with the knowledge and confidence to educate others about the nature of disability. The degree incorporates insights from education, as well as drawing on work in the arts, humanities and health care, to ensure you gain a broad and balanced understanding of the principal features of education in a wide range of contexts.

A central aspect of the course is an understanding of medical and social constructions of Special Educational Needs and Disability, the legal requirements regarding provision for SEN/ Disability and a critical understanding of past and contemporary practices. By completing this degree, you will have gained a knowledge and understanding of the global perspectives on special education and disability and issues relating to children and families, as well as having the ability to critically engage with professional expertise.

Special Educational Needs (SEN) at Liverpool Hope University is an interdisciplinary subject underpinned by the work of the Centre for Culture and Disability Studies (CCDS). You will become a professional who is knowledgeable and skilled in this field. You will enter your professional life recognising the importance of compassion and understanding of your work with, and on behalf of, those who are disabled and/or identified as having a special educational need.
