Course Content

This course has been developed in partnership with local business organisations in both the public and private sectors. It will help you meet the challenges of the complex and dynamic world of business.

You will study the environmental aspects of business and how globalisation affects the picture. The course will help you develop your understanding of ethical principles and gain an awareness of effective management and finance practice. You will also examine the increasing use of information and communications technology (ICT) and the development of entrepreneurship.

You will learn from staff who have worked in a wide range of sectors, all of whom have business or industry experience. This diversity of expertise will help you develop your breadth of knowledge. It will also give you the chance to examine the many contexts in which businesses operate.

We use a range of teaching methods so that you can get the most out of your experience at UWL. During lectures you will be introduced to new concepts, models and theories, while practical sessions will help you understand how theory works in reality. You will learn through a mix of:

  • task-based learning to develop problem-solving skills
  • group work to encourage communication and experience sharing
  • discussion and reflection to encourage inquiry, application and analysis, and experimentation
  • group and individual tutorials by appointment, to support your learning in seminar
  • online platforms

This business and finance degree gives you the tools to succeed, both nationally and internationally.

Our longstanding reputation has also helped us to build links with professional bodies including the:

  • Chartered Institute of Marketing
  • Institute of Direct Marketing
  • Chartered Institute of Personnel
  • Chartered Management Institute
