Overview

Overview

As a student of Business and Management, you will gain a comprehensive grounding in all areas of management, enterprise, business administration, economics and financial accounting.  A key feature of the programme is a themed approach which provides great flexibility for students to follow a stream of study suited to their needs and interests.  Management, business law, economics, marketing, operations management, organisational behaviour, leadership, human resources, innovation management – these are just some of the broad range of topics you will study, preparing you for entry into multiple avenues of business.

The broad sweep of this course means you won't be limited by choosing a specialty too early on, while giving you a solid foundation in each of the many areas that make up business life. You will learn to think analytically and to communicate effectively. You will also gain insight into the latest research in various fields of business and acquire skills directly relevant to the practice of management.

On completion of the degree students will have gained an excellent foundation in leadership and the management of organisations, as well as financial analysis and the measurement of performance. These skills provide opportunities for students to take up roles in industry, commercial organisations, banking and financial sectors, professional firms, consultancy organisations, and the public or health care sectors.

Course Structure

As a Single Honours Bachelor of Business Studies (BBS) degree, a range of business and management subjects are taken in First, Second and Third Year.

There is an option to convert the BBS to a Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) by extending your degree to four years.

On satisfactory completion of Second Year, students have an option to take a one-year paid work placement (arranged by the University Placement Officer).  The placement provides students with experience that can significantly enhance their employment opportunities on completion of the degree.  

On satisfactory completion of the Third Year work placement, students may apply for conversion to the BBA degree.  On successful completion of the course, students are awarded a Bachelor of Business Administration in Business and Management.

All students must pass the ECDL (European Computer Driving Licence) to proceed to Second Year. The ECDL course is available at the University.
