This practical, vocational course has been designed to meet the specific needs of businesses and provide you with a thorough grounding in key business disciplines. These include accounting, marketing, human resources management, e-Business and information systems. Your learning will take place in a new, purpose-built facility that is more like a modern office than a classroom and is equipped with the latest IT facilities. The course will involve developing your problem-solving and analytical skills, as well as enhancing your communication and presentation skills. You will work alone and in groups and, during your final year, you will complete a one-year work placement. Prior to your placement you will be given the opportunity to choose between concentrating on a generalist business studies degree or specialising in a particular area.
