**Summary**: This engaging and diverse business and management degree explores the critical areas of business and management practice and underpins this reality with the foundations of organisational theory. **Course details**: You focus on developing your business thinking, analysis and problem-solving skills, applying them to theoretical and simulated business cases, and directly to real-time business. Working closely with our business partners you build networks and explore opportunities to develop your own career in the business world. Through work experience you gain the practical, professional and transferable skills required to increase your employability when you graduate - extremely important in the increasingly demanding graduate marketplace. Between Year 2 and your final year, you have the opportunity to spend a year in industry on placement, or study abroad at one of our partner institutions. Alternatively you could proceed on to the final year. **After the course**: Due to the diverse nature of the degree our students progress to a range of businesses and sectors securing roles from general business manager to social media executive, international business representative to social entrepreneur, and retail manager to new business adviser. We provide an environment that allows you to develop the ‘extra’ practical employability characteristics that will make you more interesting to employers in the job market in the years to come.
