In a rapidly changing business environment, employers are looking for people who have their finger on the pulse and can easily find solutions to an array of problems. Our industry-led HND Business Studies course provides you with the tools to achieve this, and will give you the knowledge to manage a successful business or organisation.
The HND Business Studies course will develop key transferable skills including strategic thinking, problem solving, managing tasks, and applying design and creativity. Our mix of theory and practice enables you to apply what you learn to real world situations, enhancing your employment prospects. Studying an HND differs from a foundation degree because it does not include a work-based learning module. This means that you don’t need to undertake a work placement, work experience, or be in employment to study this course. Course content is driven towards improving your employment prospects after graduation.
