Overview

Business success requires a breadth of knowledge and abilities. In bringing together theory and practice, this course will enable you to develop the vision, innovation and dynamism required in the contemporary business world. One of the key areas in most organisations at the moment is the use of digital business concepts and technology: this degree allows you to explore this area alongside more general business and management concepts.

During the course, you will gain a broad range of business knowledge and skills which will enable you to pursue a career in the private or public sectors. You will also have the appropriate skills and the confidence to develop your own business.

In Year 1 you are introduced to the functions of business organisations, the broader business environment, and key management skills and competence including information gathering and analysis, accounting, economics, marketing and organisational behaviour. This means you have the ability to change courses within the Business Management BA Hons portfolio at the end of the first year.

In Year 2 you will be investigating and learning how businesses operate, looking at how people are managed, how you manage business operations and how managers make key decisions. You will also start to develop your greater understanding of how digital business is one of the most important aspects of modern organisations. The Digital Business modules will help you gain a clear understanding of how you can solve real business problems as well as making business opportunities with digital business concepts.

Year 3 will enable you to apply critical and reflective approaches to exploring the challenges facing organisations at a strategic level. You will also develop your specialist area further, looking at how digital business can be used as a vehicle or a driver for change within any organisation. During this year you will complete a piece of independent research in your specialist subject area within the current themes in digital business.

In each year of study, you will take a combination of core and option modules, with increased flexibility as you move through your degree. Each year, you will also have the opportunity to study a foreign language as part of your course. You will also be provided with a personal tutor who will help you to decide on a programme of study best suited to your abilities and personal career interests. There is also an opportunity to study abroad for a single semester, as well as a year-long study abroad or work placement opportunity.

Career opportunities

If you are studying a Bachelor’s degree at Westminster Business School, you can choose to take a year’s break from your studies in your third year to do a placement.

A placement year is a great way of gaining practical work experience within an industry relevant to your studies. It increases your confidence and skills, and boosts your employability. It gives you a chance to apply the theoretical techniques you have learnt during your undergraduate degree so far to a real business environment while you work as a member of an established organisation.
