Enjoy international visits and study, learn from world-renowned industry speakers and work on real-life projects with our broad-based Business Management degree.

BA (Hons) Business Management offers a dedicated management route and three distinct associated programmes, which allow you to specialise in a specific area, while still learning the core skills of business and management.

Consultancy enables you to gain an insight into the theory and application of the industry, Supply Chain Management is perfect if you wish to seek a deeper insight into the operation of the supply chain, while the Enterprise pathway provides a route for you if you’re interested in the development and sustainability of new business operations.

These programmes will enhance your understanding of organisations and the environment in which they operate, will prepare you for a career in business and management, and enhance your skills to become a lifelong learner.

Your learning will embrace the development and operation of business markets, the management of key resources including human capital, financial management, strategic management and cultural awareness. In addition, you’ll gain an insight into digital business exploring how technology has remodelled the business world, and reflect on the accompanying issues around social responsibility and ethical behaviour.

Our accreditation from the CMI ensures you’ll be provided with the latest information and knowledge, as well as providing key industry links and insight.

The final year of your course working full-time in an employer with block taught and blended delivery lets you put your learning into practice at an early stage and build further experience in the workplace.

Programme structure

Business Management and its associated programmes integrate theory and practice. As such, teaching methods are designed to be diverse, inclusive and to reflect the global context in which you will operate upon graduating.

Methods include face-to-face, blended and independent learning, through a combination of lectures, tutorials, workshops, work-based learning, ‘real-world’ projects and discussion forums.

During your workplace Level 6, you will undertake a combination of block face-to-face delivery and be supported by our virtual learning environment to give you the blended learning experience to facilitate your engagement with the programme.

The methods by which you are assessed reflect the diverse nature of the skills a Business Management graduate needs and typically include – but are not restricted to – coursework reports, essays, examinations, projects, posters and presentations.Your assessments will include individual and group work, to mirror the real world of work.

A programme strength is the emphasis on practice-based assessment where the focus is on enabling development of the knowledge and attributes required to contribute to the workplace.

Career opportunities

This course is designed to help you learn the skills that you need to fast-track into an entry-level management role, and that’s just what James Hartle did.

He left university to work as a graduate Project Management Officer at Agilisys, an innovative IT and business service provider. Having conducted an industry placement with us, he developed his knowledge and understanding of topics to help him secure his role at Agilisys.
