Business management is the study of the nature and functions of businesses. A degree in business management at QMU examines key approaches that businesses can take to ensure that scarce resources are managed in the most efficient and effective manner possible to ensure optimum resource allocation. Our business management degrees are centred on the need for businesses and organisations to be economically, socially and environmentally sustainable. We offer a number of business management options at QMU. You can either study a generic business management degree or add an enterprise, finance or marketing dimension to focus on a specialised area of business management. There is a growing demand for graduates who have a strong foundation in business management, combined with relevant practical experience. As such, a key feature of our business management routes is the focus on employability and experiential learning. All students will enrol on the general Business Management degree and will study the same modules during Years One and Two. These first two years will provide students with a strong foundation in core Business Management areas such as: marketing, economics, finance, human resource management, entrepreneurship, digital business and law. In Years Three and Four students will be provided with an opportunity to specialise by completing modules which are specific to their desired professional pathway. Students can choose to continue to study the BA / BA (Hons) Business Management degree or focus on one of the specialist areas of enterprise, finance or marketing. This will allow students to exit at the end of Year Four with a BA (Hons) in Business Management with Enterprise, BA (Hons) in Business Management with Finance or BA (Hons) in Business Management with Marketing. Graduates of all routes will have a broad knowledge base of Business Management, while the tailored routes will also enable graduates to focus on a range of specific career related professional pathways.
