Course details

Modules

You will learn through practice-based modules. Topics equip you for a graduate career in many business fields and industries. You will explore a full range of business and management disciplines, including Marketing, Human Resource Management, Business Strategy, Accounting and Finance, Information Systems, Operations Management and Research Skills for business.
Your first year of study provides the building blocks for the degree, as well as any specialisation you choose. At the same time, you focus on key employability skills including personal and team development skills. As you progress through the degree programme, you will choose option modules to help you specialise in key business areas. In your final year of study with us, instead of a traditional theory-based dissertation, you will undertake a Management Project focussing on a key business problem to demonstrate your practical understanding of business.
