Overview

This Business and Economics course covers a wide range of subject areas, including organisational management, finance, new venture creations and marketing before moving on to international topics such as politics, problem solving, logistics, and micro and macroeconomics.

We’ll provide the support and flexibility to allow you to develop in the areas that interest you, picking the modules to benefit your future career as you progress.

You’ll work on your own and in groups to analyse real case studies, deliver presentations and build your understanding of how the theory relates to real situations. You’ll also have the opportunity to present to and get feedback from industry professionals and see incredible guest speakers such as Sir Ranulph Fiennes and the Chairman of Unilever.

We’ll also encourage you to enter national and international industry competitions. Our students recently won an award at the Uni Popshop competition in London’s Spitalfield Market.

You’ll be taught and supported by expert staff with strong global industry links and experience. They have experience working in multinational conglomerates, managing start-ups and acting as advisers for companies such as Vauxhall.
