This degree is suited to students who would like to gain a broad understanding of business and management, rather than specialising in a particular area of business at this stage. It is a flexible programme of study offering you a balanced approach to management, and providing a foundation of knowledge across a range of business and management principles. This course aims to help set you apart in the competitive job marketplace, developing students into modern managers working across a variety of business environments including private, public, not-for-profit and small to medium-sized enterprise sectors. Your broad range of business knowledge will equip you with the skills to allow you to progress up the management ladder and help you to build confidence in your abilities to work across different industries and businesses. Many of our Accountancy and Finance modules attract accreditation from the professional bodies, such as Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW), Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA), Association of International Accountants (AIA), Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA). Our Business and Management course develops students’ fundamental business skills as well as offering the flexibility to choose subjects that interest them, and help direct their career path. Our degrees in Business and Management Studies, Human Resource Management, International Business and Management, and Marketing all share the same modules in first year. This means students gain a foundation of essential business knowledge from a leading business school. It also allows students to transfer to one of the four in the second year if they discover a new passion. This course will help you develop transferable skills that are applicable to any business environment. Employers highly value and demand graduates who can combine a clear understanding of core business and management functions with good problem solving and decision-making skills; and this degree aims to do just that. We will develop your expertise in the fundamentals of business, equipping you with a unique bundle of contemporary business skills and knowledge that you can transfer directly into the workplace, applying the theory you’ve learned. You will be taught by leading academics who have worked professionally in a variety of sectors throughout the world of business and management, learning from their experience and expertise. They will provide you with examples that can be applied to a range of business contexts.
