Jump start your career early with our Business Management Professional Practice degree. The final year of your course will involve you working full-time with an employer alongside finishing your degree through block release and blended delivery. This approach lets you put your learning into practice at an early stage and build further experience in the workplace before you graduate. This degree course is aligned with the Chartered Management Institute (CMI). This means that the course is as professionally relevant and up-to-date as possible, taking into account the very latest developments in the profession. You’ll be involved in real world business projects and hear from leading industry speakers, who will share current thinking around business and management. You’ll also get the chance to go behind the scenes at places such as the luxury outlet shopping centre Bicester Village and Manchester United Football Club with our trips and visits. Recognising the global scope of business, all our programmes have an international focus. This is embedded throughout the curriculum, giving you the opportunity to transform your experience with us into a global one. There are a variety of exciting possibilities open to you, ranging from our successful international travel scholarships scheme, through which you can spend a summer working for a charitable organisation overseas, to one of our many overseas study exchange programmes. We put a heavy emphasis on the hands-on skills needed in modern business management, with practical assessments as well as exams. The course will prepare you for a variety of management roles, whether they are based in the public, private or voluntary sector, a multinational company, a local organisation or your own business.
