**BA (Hons) Business Management (CMI accredited) with Foundation Year** **Start your studies with a Foundation Year if you don’t have the formal qualifications to join our acclaimed honours degree directly. This gives you a firm platform for success on a course which combines Business Management with a sought-after qualification from the Chartered Management Institute (CMI).** **Why choose this course?** The BA (Hons) Business Management shows prospective employers that you are suited for senior roles. You will be studying on one of the few courses where you can also achieve the CMI Level 5 Diploma in Management and Leadership – in a university ranked top ten for Business Management in the 2017 National Student Survey. **Is this course for you?** If you have the ability to study for an honours degree but aren’t quite ready to embark on the three year degree, a Foundation Year is the ideal starting point to build your skills, knowledge and confidence. It means you can complete the full BA (Hons) Business Management in four years – or five with an optional placement year. **How you will learn** You will develop practical know-how via business simulations, topical case studies and employer-led consultancy projects. There are opportunities to specialise, too, in disciplines such as Marketing, HRM, Finance, Enterprise or International Business. **Opportunities and experiences** You will benefit from the advice of an external CMI mentor throughout. We also support you to take an optional placement year or summer internship. **Careers and employability** With the BA (Hons) Business Management and CMI Diploma on your CV, you are primed for rapid promotion. Our graduates now work for organisations such as Barclays, DHL and IBM.
