Subject

Business and management

This course offers excellent preparation for a career in global business management. It builds on strong academic foundations by providing exciting opportunities for applying your theoretical knowledge, for contact with employers and for work experience.

**Applied**
This degree programme teaches practical skills in the classroom, but you will also have opportunities for internships, business simulations, work placements, live client projects and mixing with employers. You might visit advertising agencies, financial institutions, manufacturers and small businesses and there are optional field trips to overseas partner institutions, businesses and events (past students have visited Paris, Berlin, Helsinki, Rotterdam and Dubai).

**Tutors**
You will be taught by tutors with significant academic and business experience across many countries and industries. Their experiences will inform and illustrate their teaching, as will their continuing involvement in global business through consultancy and research.

**London**
Our London campus is right in the City of London, one of the world’s premier business districts. You will be surrounded by the UK or international headquarters of some of the world’s biggest companies, as well as exciting start-up businesses and emerging business models. This is an extraordinary place in which to learn, surrounded by the buzz of contemporary global business.

**Entrepreneurship**
One of the key themes of this course is ‘entrepreneurship’ – which is ideal if you’re interested in starting your own business, but it also means so much more. Even big businesses are interested in embedding entrepreneurial skills within their organisations, because they value visionary and independent thinking, determined and resilient individuals, and the ability to launch agile teams, sub-brands, products and services. If you do want to set up your own business, we offer start-up advice and support during the course.

**Support**
To help you reach your maximum potential on this course, we offer a wide range of support at any stage of your studies. This includes help with academic writing and referencing, how to study and research effectively, digital and IT support, and help with employability (including job-hunting, CVs and interviews). You will also be assigned an academic mentor and a personal tutor.

**Key Course Benefits;**

- Optional one-year work placement or study abroad with Erasmus.

- We offer the flexibility of full-time, part-time and accelerated options, plus October or January start-dates.

- Take up opportunities to visit or collaborate with partner universities in France, Germany, the UAE and the Netherlands.

- Enjoy the benefit of our extensive business contacts in the private, public and voluntary sectors, in London and beyond.

- Enjoy opportunities for UK and international field trips to businesses (such as Bloomberg, the Bank of England and the BBC).

- Learn about international business practice through guest speakers (who have included the London Stock Exchange and Standard & Poor’s).

- Optional one-term internship, either in the UK (perhaps with an organisation in the City of London) or you could arrange your own overseas placement.

- Engage in interactive activities such as the Chartered Institute of Management Accountant (CIMA) Business Challenge and the Online International Project with peers in other universities (in the past, this has included the University of Jordan).

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

As only a small number of students take courses in this subject area, there isn't much information on what graduates do when they finish, so bear that in mind when you review any stats. Management, finance and business roles are common, but it's a good idea to ask tutors what previous graduates taking specific courses went on to do when you're at an open day.
