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.
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.
