Perhaps you like to encourage and motivate others. Or you like to rise to a challenge and think of creative solutions, and like the idea of working in a fast-paced environment. Our Business Management and Leadership course is designed to help you develop the skills you need to lead from the front and inspire people in today’s dynamic commercial world. We want you to be ambitious. If you’re enrolling on this course, you’ll be hoping to be a leader of tomorrow. So we’ll give you the chance to specialise in leadership and develop the skills to motivate and inspire a team of people to work towards a common goal. There are plenty of theories about leadership. And of course you’ll get a thorough grounding in the current thinking from our academics, supplemented by contacts with businesses. But to succeed you’ll need to understand how that theory works in the real world too. So we include lots of opportunities for real-world application. We’ll give you the opportunity to take a placement year working in a business, either here in the UK or abroad. Previous students have gained experience with businesses such as Sia Fibral, Unilever, National Coal Mining Museum, Caravan Guard, Thornton & Ross and Depuy. As you progress in your studies you can tailor your course to suit you, choosing from a range of option modules including leadership, managing change and innovation. We also work closely with the Chartered Management Institute (CMI). Once you graduate you will have the chance to achieve a CMI Level 6 Diploma in Management and Leadership without the need for any additional study or assessment. You could also work with our own HR professionals to create video CVs and portfolios, and develop your interview techniques. We want to make you as employable as possible to help you find your ideal employment.
