Business Management and Law

The main aim of the Business Management route is to provide a coherent and sound foundation in business and management disciplines whilst permitting students to pursue specialist interests and to relate these specialisms to professional requirements. Business Management involves the study of organisational types, objectives, operational behaviour and managerial and strategic approaches, both within and between organisations. An understanding of consumer behaviour in response to a variety of price and non-price ‘signals’ will be gained. The main aim of the Law route is to provide knowledge of the principal features of the English legal system, including relevant aspects of the law of the European Union, the European Convention on Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms. This route will also develop a more detailed knowledge of practice and procedure in specific aspects of legal studies e.g. property law, wills and succession and employment law. It is expected that graduates of this course will have a competitive advantage for employment as legal assistants, local authority officers, court services officers, the Crown Prosecution Service and the Police service. They will also be well placed for careers in larger public and private organisations where professional roles may involve liaison and understanding with particular aspects of the legal system.
