BSc Management

Complete your degree in two years with our accelerated programme. BSc (Hons) Management with accelerated delivery is for highly motivated and academically capable students who can dedicate the full calendar year to the achievement of their degree and as such, complete a degree course within two years. The course provides high levels of knowledge and skills with a strong emphasis on management practice through work-based learning. We work with a range of employers so that in each year of study, you will gain valuable insight into business through a substantial work-based experience and project activity, helping to prepare you for a challenging career upon completion of the course. The focus throughout this course is on innovative teaching and learning by doing and reflecting. One technique is problem-based learning, where you’ll work within a small team to explore issues or decide how to manage a situation. This helps you to dissect, challenge and debate issues. Other learning techniques include company visits, guest speakers and cutting-edge e-learning technologies. These are in addition to a combination of lectures, seminars, debates, tutorials and workshops. Your progress will be assessed by work-based activities, coursework, assessed case studies and business simulations, presentations, reports, essays, tests and time-constrained assessments. As this course is delivered over two years rather than the standard three year cycle, you will continue your academic studies over the summer period. During the final stage of this accelerated programme, you will gain valuable insight into the world of work through a work-based experience and project activity.
