Duration: 3 years full time
Start date: September each year
This established general business management programme provides a broad-based study of core business concepts to develop skills relating to marketing, human resources, information systems/e-Business, accounting, finance and many other career opportunities.
You will develop a broad repertoire of business skills, rather than focusing on one specialism. Students undertake a range of tasks applied to organisations and enjoy developing sophisticated solutions to business problems.
Given the broad range of skills learned, graduates have many career opportunities in a diverse range of business roles in a wide range of sectors, including government and not-for-profit sectors. This programme is also suitable for those who wish to develop a business management specialism after a general business education, to become business teachers or to start their own businesses.
Year 1 provides an introduction to the key business disciplines and development of vital skills. Students will work with an external organisation to see theory in action and acquire valuable skills.
Year 2 covers finance, human resources and marketing. It allows a choice of options in current business management developing areas. It includes an entrepreneurship exercise and study data management and business intelligence. An internship opportunity exists which will be assessed for credits.
Year 3 develops the themes of strategy, leadership and management, with the opportunity to choose options. Students will also study either a dissertation in a contemporary business management topic or an organisational consultancy project in which they will simulate the management consultant’s role developing advice for an organisation.
