Business Management is our most popular degree programme and this professional route has been created in response to demand from students who need a flexible degree programme. This course is designed to open doors for you by developing your business knowledge to give you greater confidence and proficiency. This professional pathway is ideal for students who are already working or setting up their own business as you can condense the classroom part of your study into one day per week.

Combining work with study will give you the ultimate learning experience. You can tailor up to 50% of the course to your current employer or work experience. Plus you’ll learn in classes which are designed especially for professionals who are keen to progress in their careers. You will be able to draw from each others experiences, share insights from different industries and network.

You will also participate in weekly group supervision sessions which focuses on your learning outside of the classroom.

Modules

LEVEL FOUR - FIRST YEAR

Core module - Principles of Business 1 and 2

Principles of Business is made up of two 30 credit modules which complement each other: Principles of Business 1 and Principles of Business 2. These modules have been designed to give learners a holistic introduction to business.

In Principles of Business 1, learners will be made aware of the many interconnected core areas of business (such as strategy, finance, organisational behaviour, people management, and marketing) that need to be considered in successfully running an organization. The assessment for this module is by an assignment and an exam.

In Principles of Business 2, students will develop an integrated understanding of the operations of a business in the context of real organisations, to inspire them with a real interest in the discipline at the beginning of their degree study. This module proceeds in two parts. The first part consists of an experiential project, and in the second part, students will need to consider and reflect upon the key issues around strategy, leadership, governance and the ability to function as a team. The assessment for this module is by an assignment and a group presentation.
