You’re hoping for a career in business. But perhaps you haven’t yet decided whether that’s going to be in marketing, product management or business development. This course enables you to build a strong foundation in all aspects of business thinking and practice while also giving you the chance to specialise in the areas that interest you. Our Business Studies course is designed to equip you with a broad overview of how the commercial world operates. We aim to help you gain a detailed understanding of how businesses develop successful strategies through relevant analytical and evaluation techniques. You’ll receive a good introduction to international business, entrepreneurship, strategic management and environmental management to help give you a firm foundation that can be applied in any sector or industry. We start with a solid foundation in business know-how, covering everything from marketing and finance through to operations and information systems. And we’ll look at how small businesses function as well as mega-corporations. Factors like transformational technology and globalisation mean businesses have to constantly change and adapt. Consequently they’re looking for individuals who can work systematically whilst being innovative. That’s why we’ll give you the chance to pick up some very desirable skills; analysis and evaluation techniques, how to think creatively, logical decision making. Each of these skills can be transferred to any size of business, in any sector. During your studies we’ll give you the opportunity to undertake a placement with a business, either in the UK or abroad. Our dedicated placement team could help you find a role where you will gain invaluable real-life experience. Previous graduates have gone on to start their career in companies like Enterprise Rent-a-Car, Caravan Guard, KT Hydraulics, Morrisons, Depuy, Sainsburys, Tekmak Marketing, Zebra Technologies and many others.
