Overview

If you are interested in how business works overall, a Business Management degree will help you towards a career in management.

The BA Business Management programme provides a thorough grounding in a range of business subjects including entrepreneurship, management and leadership, the chance to work with real businesses and the opportunity to specialise in areas such as human resource management, marketing and operations management.

On the Year in Industry programme you spend Year Three on placement in industry.

From the first year of study, students are introduced to the problems and challenges of the business world and how to solve them. By the final year of the programme, students are able to consolidate their studies through a much greater degree of personal study and research and possess the skills and knowledge to succeed in the business world.

Business Management is also an ideal partner for a wide range of other subjects in the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences such as languages, and can be studied at every level from Single Honours to Minor.

Programme structure

Programme Year One

The first year aims to introduce students both to the problems of business in the modern world and to the subjects that will help in understanding and solving these problems. The core modules introduce students to the economic context of business, to key quantitative techniques and to Accounting and Finance. In addition, students study the organisational and behavioural context of business and develop their IT skills.

Programme Year Two

The second year builds on the foundation of the first year by introducing an international dimension and a specialist law module. A wide range of options may be studied to broaden understanding of contemporary business issues. Students undertake a careers-oriented module during the first semester, which prepares them for their year in industry.

Programme Year Three

The third year of the programme is spent on placement. Students will complete a year-long graduate-level placement, which will provide them with valuable work experience and an opportunity to further enhance the skills and attributes sought after by top employers. Students may apply for UK-based placements, or seek overseas placements or a role at Suzhou Business Park, China. Students will be visited at least twice by University staff whilst on placement and will complete placement-related assessments in May.

Programme Year Four

The final year consolidates knowledge and understanding of management through a much greater degree of personal study and research and modules that probe more deeply into contemporary issues.
