Program Overview

Are you interested in learning about the relationship between business and society?

 

Our BSc in Business Management is designed to develop your understanding of management techniques and the forces at work in business. You’ll build on your creative thinking, communication and analytical skills while learning about key business practices like accounting, marketing, human resources and organisational innovation.

 

The first year will provide you with a solid foundation in business and management theory and practice. In your second and third years you can tailor your studies through a wide range of option modules, allowing you to build expertise in a particular field of business and prepare for your chosen career path.

 

If you select the 'Year in Industry' route, you will have the unique opportunity to spend the third year of your degree on an industrial placement with an employer in a role relevant to your field of study. Therefore, your degree programme will last four years and after the placement you will come back to university for your final year of study.

 

You will graduate with a working knowledge of the real-world strategies and processes used by contemporary organisations from small- to medium-sized enterprises to large multinationals and across the private, public and not-for-profit sectors.
