Course summary

Managing businesses and organisations today takes serious leadership skills. To ensure future success, companies are constantly on the lookout for skilled and qualified leaders.

Employers want graduates who are not just academically qualified, but are also work-ready with professional skills in management and leadership. This three-year degree course equips you with the skills to become a confident and successful manager.

This programme is ideal for students interested in developing business knowledge and management skills in any industry.

Become business-ready
On this programme you will develop a good understanding of the nature of business management in a world of volatility, uncertainty, change and ambiguity.

A key feature is to blend both academic study and skills training in order to enhance the employability of our graduates.

So, as well as studying business theory you will also develop key skills, such as empathy, problem-solving and creativity, in order to ensure you are well placed to enter the employment market. These skills are increasingly important in a world in which technology and Artificial Intelligence (AI) are now fulfilling vital business activities.

You will also learn about how technology is impacting business, so that you can understand how technology can underpin innovation and improvements to business and organisations.

The tutors on the programme have a wide range of experience and ongoing links with industry. With smaller, more intimate class sizes, we give our students one-to-one teaching and support.

Practical learning
The course focuses on the ability to think critically and will enable you to analyse and evaluate solutions to complex, real-life problems.

We focus on equipping you with the knowledge of contemporary management theories but, of equal importance, giving you the opportunity to apply and integrate that knowledge in real-world scenarios.

Career Prospects
On successful completion of the programme, you will be well prepared to progress to a range of opportunities and careers in general management or to develop your own business.
