Course Description

Every organisation across the planet, no matter what its size, sector or purpose, needs people with strong business skills. By the time you finish our course, you’ll be the kind of person they want – a business professional with a global mindset, confident about running teams, managing operations, developing strategies, aware of key sustainability challenges, and making the kind of decisions that come with leadership.

We’ll teach you how to spot opportunities, adapt to change, assess impact on stakeholders, and understand when and how to take risks. You’ll gain a broad understanding of the business world, together with fundamental skills like team-working and problem-solving. Later, you’ll have the opportunity to specialise, looking into the areas that interest you most, such as marketing, finance, people, technology, start-up and consultancy.

It’s a degree that also includes the chance to spend a year gaining valuable experience – whether studying abroad in Europe, Asia, Australia or the USA, or developing real-world skills on a placement with an employer – before returning for your final year.

Course Content

Our business degrees focus on how organisations operate - what they do, the differing styles of management and business strategies.

We look closely at understanding the internal and external business environment - from the psychology of managing people to how the economic, social, technological and political climate impacts particular sectors.

Business is no longer just about making money and ruthless takeovers. It's about improving ethical and environmental processes, so expect to see relevant units emphasising how to do business ethically and sustainably. 

Our excellent links with industry are embedded into this degree through guest speakers, networking opportunities and the chance to really apply your learning in a practical environment, through placements and consultancy projects.

Studying business at our multi-award winning Business School allows you to develop the essential skills you need to become an effective business leader and explore a range of possible career paths through practical, creative learning.

Entrepreneurship is central to the degree and you'll have the opportunity to take part in enterprise competitions, business start-up boot camps, strategy workshops and consultancy projects that test your team working, communication, pitching and problem solving capabilities.

You'll also develop skills in how to manage people, lead teams and how to make informed decisions about business strategy and operations.
