Overview

On this course, you learn what’s involved in managing organisations in an increasingly complex world. We look at the enduring patterns in how people, groups, organisations, economies and societies function and interact. By understanding these behaviours, you can manage them effectively in times of significant change.

With BSc Business Management, you gain a rich understanding of how organisations operate – what they do, how they develop strategies and why.

Topics include:

- management, innovation and new technologies
- the international business environment
- organisational behaviour
- operations and supply chain management
- leadership
- human resource management

Your first year also introduces you to accounting, finance, marketing and economics to provide you with the essential business knowledge needed for a successful career.

This course is taught at Essex Business School, ranked in the UK’s top 25 for research excellence (REF, 2014).
