Through a range of engaging, small-group lessons and practical placements, you will be equipped with the academic, professional and personal skills to help you succeed at university. Modules will cover broad topics as well as an introduction to your chosen subject area. You will also have the opportunity to study alongside students undertaking a range of degree programmes. In Year 1, core modules such as People and Organisations, Responsible Management and Marketing Principles give you a sound basis for your innovation. Once your first year of Business Management is complete, you can sharpen your business acumen in Year 2 with modules including Effectual Entrepreneurship, Creativity, Design and Innovation, and Business Profitability and Performance.
