With a curriculum that is career-focused and industry-informed, Business and Management at Salford Business School prepares you for a range of managerial careers. As a Business and Management student, you’ll develop a holistic knowledge of management theory and learn how to apply it to business scenarios. Salford Business School maintains excellent links with businesses both locally and around the globe. These industry links help us to ensure that our programmes are designed around the current needs of employers and provide exciting placement opportunities for undergraduate students. By studying Business and Management, you’ll not only graduate with an advanced knowledge of management theory, but with the experience, professional skills and industry insights to embark on an exciting career across multiple sectors and roles. You can enhance your career options with a year-long industrial placement giving you the opportunity to apply the skills, knowledge and understanding you have gained in the first two years of the course. You will work with an employer either in the UK or overseas; this could be a local, national or international organisation. In 2016-17, these included such as Red Alert fashion agency and Peninsula business management consultants. During this year, you will not pay fees to the University and will earn a wage for the work that you do. There are different entry requirements and course codes for the Professional Experience Year option. This degree is also offered with a Foundation Year.
