The prosperity of business is reliant upon the innovation and creativeness of its employees, and our BA (Hons) Business Studies programme is designed to enable you to acquire the skills and experience necessary to flourish in a challenging commercial environment. You will encounter a variety of practice-based topics across a full range of business and management disciplines, including: marketing, accounting and finance, human resources management, law, information systems, operations management, business strategy, and research skills. The first year of study focuses on providing the foundation to the rest of the degree through introducing you to the key subject areas, in parallel with allowing time to focus on your personal and team development skills. As you progress through the degree you will also have option modules that will let you specialise further in key business areas. In your final year of study you will undertake a management project. This allows you to research an area of particular interest within an appropriate business, public sector or third sector context, and is designed to make a major contribution to your personal development. Many students will undertake this project on a 10 week internship based with a client organization.
