Business Management

UCAS Code: N200 Duration: 3 years

Overview

You will study the business environment across the full range of organisations, from small- and medium-sized enterprises to global organisations across public, private and the third sectors. You will cover fundamental business principles and processes, and develop business and management skills, such as critical analysis, problem solving, report writing, presentation, teamwork and reflective skills.

Business organisations are facing unprecedented change and complex challenges both within the UK and globally.

This in-depth programme gives you the opportunity to understand how businesses operate and the ethical and social impact they have on communities. An experienced, student-focused team will develop your understanding of this business context and develop the critical business skills that future employers will demand.
