Course description

This course is ideal for students wishing to advance their knowledge, skills and career prospects in business management. It enables you to convert your business-related HND or degree credits into an honours degree in business management. The structure of the course is very flexible. You can tailor your studies to the career you are intending to follow and have more control over your academic and career direction. You choose modules according to your strengths and interests. The range of modules covers many business disciplines including • marketing • human resource management • international business • finance • foreign languages. We emphasise developing practical skills and business understanding alongside academic knowledge. We teach through projects and case studies related to real life organisations and scenarios. This improves your employability after you graduate. As well as the personal, analytical and communication skills that many university courses develop, you gain skills in • problem solving • decision making • negotiation • research • project management. These skills are needed in all organisations. Work placements in the UK and overseas In year two, you have the opportunity to apply the skills you’ve gained by taking a one-year paid work placement. This is a great way to improve your industry knowledge with real insight and experience. It also enables you to build an eye catching CV to impress future employers, and many students find jobs with their placement companies after graduating. Due to our strong relationships with regional, national and international employers, we can help you to secure a great placement opportunity and support you while you are there. There are no tuition fees for the placement year and you are paid a salary by your employer.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
Although management degrees are a popular choice, with nearly 5,800 degrees awarded, numbers fell quite a bit last year. It's not a surprise to hear that a lot of graduates from the subject went into management, and remember that, for this degree, a lot of the jobs are in London. But management graduates tried their hands at all sorts of different jobs last year — not just those within the finance industry, but also marketing, human resources, sales, business development and accountancy. And for management grads wanting something a little left-field, our serious shortage of surveyors means well over a hundred graduates a year are taking this lucrative option. This is a flexible degree that can fit graduates for all sorts of work.
