All organisations need people with strong business skills.

You will learn how to spot opportunities, adapt to change, assess impact on stakeholders, and understand when and how to take risks. You’ll gain a broad understanding of the business world, together with fundamental skills like team-working and problem-solving.

Later, you’ll have the opportunity to specialise in areas that interest you most.
