Course summary

TEF Gold

University of Bath has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.

Find out more about the TEF.

This practical course will prepare you for a range of business and management roles. You’ll develop your business skills with two professional placements.

This flexible business and management degree is different from many others. You will complete two six-month placements with separate companies rather than 12 months with one. Experience of two roles will help you decide on your future career direction.

You’ll also interact with businesses through practical research including the Final Year Project. You will enjoy teaching informed by the latest research and our industry links.

Year 1 covers the core subjects relevant for business and management. These principles will provide context for the rest of your course.

From Year 2 onwards you can customise your degree with optional units. These let you explore other areas of interest from a wide range of topics.

In your final year you can apply for our International Academic Exchange programme. You'll gain international exposure by spending a semester studying abroad at one of our partner business schools.
