Business Management with a Year Abroad

At NBS we believe that exceptional management is all about balancing hard and soft skills. That means understanding numbers and how to use them, and how to finance an organisation. It also means understanding people, how they behave and why they behave as they do. On this course you will become adept at this difficult balancing act. We also believe that anyone can become a great manager, no matter what their background is, so our course is inclusive and welcoming to all. You will have the chance to hone your qualitative and quantitative capabilities, at the same time as learning how to work with people, building your reflective skills, and your ability to look at yourself and your own work critically. At UEA we focus on evidence-based management. You’ll learn to pose questions and challenge assumptions, as well as how to use evidence to make your own decisions and then back them up. You will develop quantitative and qualitative skills, learning how to deal with numbers and accounts, and how to interpret statistics, as well as how to manage people and resources. You’ll also gain experience working with others and presenting your findings and ideas – invaluable practice for your career, when you’ll need to not only develop solutions to problems but also persuade people of their validity. We were in the top 5 in the UK for overall satisfaction for Finance, Marketing, Management Studies and Business Studies in the National Student Survey 2017. **Course Structure** **Year 1** Across six fascinating core modules you’ll explore the essentials of modern business. This will give you an excellent grounding – not just in management areas such as organisational behaviour, human resources management, supply chain management, and operations management – but also in economics, marketing, accounting and finance. By the end of your first year, you won’t just have a firm foundation of your chosen subject, you’ll understand all the key disciplines of business. Throughout your future career you are likely to work closely with these disciplines so this understanding is extremely valuable – being able to communicate with and understand other disciplines is a crucial part of management. And should you discover during your first year that your true passion lies with one of these other subjects, you are welcome to change pathways in order to focus on it – an option roughly 25% of our students take advantage of. **Year 2** After a first year spent discovering the fundamentals of business, you will focus on core business management functions like HR management (managing people), operations management (managing technology and processes), and managing information systems. You’ll also have the flexibility to choose optional modules, allowing you to try different things, explore your interests and discover where your talents, interests and ambitions lie. For example, if you’re interested in marketing you could take the Marketing Communications module, where past students have visited BBC East to learn how to make TV ads. Or if you are interested in the legal side of the business then you could study Business and Company law or Practical Law for Management. **Year 3** You’ll spend your third year overseas at one of our partner universities in Europe, Asia, Australia or the US. During your time abroad you’ll gain a new perspective on your studies. **Year 4** In your fourth year there are no compulsory modules, giving you even more flexibility to build a degree that suits you. For example if you’re interested in starting your own business you could take the Entrepreneurship and Small business module or if you’re interested in consultancy, either working for a consultancy firm or learning the skills of how to be an effective internal consultant, you could take the Management Consultancy module. **Disclaimer** Course details are subject to change.
