Full-time | 2019

Our BA (Hons) Business with Management with Foundation Entry degree course is designed for students who want to study Business and Management at degree level, but don’t have the necessary formal qualifications to start the Honours degree programme just yet.

Compared to courses such as BA (Hons) Business with Human Resource Management or FdA Accounting, the BA (Hons) Business with Management route does not focus on one narrow area of a business, but instead allows you to study a wider range of business practices, including marketing, finance, human resources and operations.

The Business with Management degree is designed for students who want to work in the fast-paced global world of private and public organisations, coordinating teams and using resources efficiently, or perhaps establishing and running their own business.

The Business and Management course aims to combine intellectual rigour with personal development, as well seeking to offer a grounding in the core principles of business such as marketing, finance, human resource management, operations and decision making.

You will develop powers of analysis, problem solving skills, research skills, critical thinking, team work and interpersonal skills.

The degree is validated by Lancaster University and is a modular programme which enables you to study a wide range of business related topics. Our supportive, qualified and experienced staff, together with accessible and interactive lecture/seminar formats, all help to ensure you will have a rewarding academic experience.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
