The BA (Hons) Business and Management degree combines elements of accountancy, finance, marketing, management and economics, and offers students the opportunity to develop the critical-thinking, problem-solving and analytical skills needed to enter the competitive world of business.
The Business and Management degree offers students the opportunity to advance their career through professional development. Many of our academics have real organisation – life expertise, with industry links that can benefit students by exposing them to current business thinking and the
latest developments in practices.
The first year introduces key elements of business, including economics, finance, marketing and organisational behaviour. The second year builds on this foundation with modules designed to develop professional skills in project management and leadership. In the final year, students can
choose modules to develop their business knowledge further and have the opportunity to develop a career specialism by choosing modules aligned to their personal interests.
