We work with employers to constantly update our degree to make sure you leave with the right skills for a successful career. All of our tutors have vast experience of working in a variety of industries and bring all of their knowledge into the classroom. We've introduced new topics to make sure you leave with skills like a creative approach to problem solving; powerful decision making; persuasive written and oral communication; ability to interpret and use financial data; self-reliance, initiative, teamworking skills and the ability to manage time, projects and resources.

**Course Content**
Your first year modules will cover the main areas of business. You’ll consider how organisations make use of available resources, people, finance and materials, as well as how businesses respond to market requirements. Over your first summer semester, you'll then learn how to apply problem solving and decision making to a range of business situations.

The second year of the course will teach you about dealing with conflict and changing organisational cultures, to gain maximum effectiveness for the organisation. We also teach you economic principles and analytical skills, to make sure you know how to research markets, prepare reports and drive overall organisational success.

Just as the world of business is becoming more technologically adept, we make sure we are up-to-date in how we use technology to help you learn. Our courses use online learning platforms, interactive white boards, podcasts and social media, to make sure you leave with an awareness of all of the most hi-tech communication methods used in business.

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.
