This course will provide you with a thorough grounding in general business management and the opportunity to study particular themes in greater depth. It will equip you with the analytical and problem-solving skills required within a business context. This course, when taken with the marketing electives, has been accredited by the Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM) to provide direct entry onto the CIM's Professional Diploma in Marketing. Our graduates go on to pursue career opportunities as business consultant, recruitment manager, project manager, communication, media or event manager to name but a few. In the second year, students must take a (20 week minimum) industrial placement, working in an organisation between March and September. These opportunities are viewed very favourably by potential employers and provide students with the chance to experience real organisational life at first hand. Students are encouraged to choose wide ranging possibilities of types of organisation both in the UK and abroad. On occasions, students can elect to work for a longer period than 20 weeks and take a year out of University in order to do so. For part-time study, please contact the Admissions Office for more information.
