Programme structure

A variety of delivery approaches will be utilised throughout the programme, including lectures, seminars, tutorials, workshops, peer teaching and learning, project-based learning, experiments, games and technology-enabled learning.

Teaching will consist of variety of different methods and in most scenarios will mirror practice. Business education is about enabling students to develop their analytical, critical reasoning and creativity skills to meet the demands of the contemporary and enterprising workplace. To achieve this, complimentary course delivery methods will be used, alongside established teaching methods. This will include the use of live projects and practice-based case studies, for both teaching and assessment. A complete Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) will be used to support all modules, enabling you to undertake appropriate independent leaning.

A wide variety of assessment methods are used, and throughout the programme you will be expected, with the appropriate support, to deliver both individually and in groups, reports, presentations, essays, project plans, exams and proposals.

“BA Business (Analytics) provides a focus on an emerging paradigm, which occupies a pivotal role for the fourth industrial revolution and drive to the digital economy. You will learn, apply and experience a core set of skills and expertise in the fields of big data, modelling standards, analytics, business intelligence systems and problem-solving, to address real industrial and business challenges.”

“Business Analysts are responsible for analysing a business’s processes and investigating how they work. They then identify improvements that can be made and present the case for these improvements back to the business. This pathway will also enhance your understanding of database management systems: indeed, it will provide you with the capability to become SAP Business Intelligence or SAP HANA certified, and progress onto BCU’s SAP programme at MSc level. SAP HANA is a type of databased management system.” – Cindy Millman, course leader.

Career opportunities

Throughout the programme, you will receive assistance for your own development through co-curriculum activities including dedicated Employability Challenge Weeks and extended induction and transition programmes.

The University has introduced the BCU Graduate+ programme, which is an extra-curricular awards framework that is designed to augment the subject based skills that you develop through your programme with broader employability skills and techniques that will enhance your employment options when you leave university.
