This course equips you with the skills and knowledge necessary to take up career opportunities in organisations across a wide range of sectors and interests. You'll develop the analytical and problem-solving skills required within a business context and gain an understanding of how to engage with the food industry globally. This course, when taken with the marketing electives, has been accredited by the Chartered Institute of Marketing (CMI) to provide direct entry onto the CIM's Professional Diploma in Marketing. 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. Our graduates go on to pursue career opportunities as food produce manager, consultant or advisor, finance manager, supply chain manager to name but a few.
