This is a four year degree that includes a year of study abroad, also referred to as ‘Exchange’. You will usually go on an exchange on your third year of study, so you’ll begin planning and applying for your exchange in your first and second year. Study abroad (exchange) opportunities exist throughout Europe, through the Erasmus+ programme. We also offer global exchange opportunities in the USA, Asia and Australasia. We are constantly growing our international exchange partnerships and have long-standing relationships with universities across the world who have welcomed our students as part of our exchange programme. We build your technical skills, knowledge and confidence by combining business studies with marketing, project management and units that focus on web and emerging technologies. You will develop practical skills solving realistic business problems as well as developing knowledge of the underlying principles. In the final year, you will develop a full e-commerce system and learn how technology is used to collect business intelligence and inform strategic business decisions. We also offer a four-year placement route where you have the opportunity to spend your third year on industrial placement or studying overseas, after which you will return to study for your final year. You will be taught in the Business School’s state-of-the-art teaching and research headquarters on All Saints Campus. Manchester Metropolitan University was the first university to offer a Business Technology programme over 20 years ago and is highly regarded within the profession. Our extensive network of alumni work for UK and international companies and organisations. They enjoy rewarding careers in business analysis, project management, IT management, and web development. The teaching and learning on the programme links academic work with practical business experience, a must for preparing graduates for employment in a wide range of businesses. The Faculty of Business and Law hosts two Professional Development Weeks annually.
