Subject

E-business

As a student of our Business department within the School of Management at Swansea University, you can expect to receive excellent teaching, driven by our world-class academic team of staff and state-of-the-art Bay Campus facilities. Our Business Management degrees are accredited by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI), whilst marketing specific content has been developed in-line with the Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM) – providing you with industry-focused teaching and a wealth of professional skills to enhance your employability on graduation. Business at Swansea University is currently recognised as one of the best departments in the UK for producing the highest degree results in comparison to entry requirements – we are ranked 1st in the UK for Value Added (Guardian University Guide 2017). Our Final Year Projects also enhance your career potential, by working in partnership with real companies on real business-related issues. The e-Business Pathway is ideally suited to students with a keen interest in e-business and its application to the business environment. This pathway provides students with an intensive focus on business information systems, covering topics such as information systems management, e-commerce, social media and application development.

Modules

For the full programme structure and module breakdown, please visit the School's web pages at http://www.swansea.ac.uk/som/. Year 1 will include compulsory modules which will give you a grounding in core busines principles including: marketing, accounting, operations and finance. In addition, we provide a range of modules that cover the basics for all areas of business, including maths and statistics as well as professional skills. Year 2 will include a combination of advanced compulsory content (specific to the pathway) and optional module choices. Year 3 involves a 12-month industry Work Placement (subject to sucessful application process during Year 2). Year 4 includes a combination of advanced compulsory content (specific to the pathway), optional module choices and the Final Year Project.

Assessment methods

For details on each module’s assessment criteria, please consult the Module Catalogue within the School's web pages at http://www.swansea.ac.uk/som/. Typically, each module includes a written examination after the taught elements have been completed (so a 15 credit module taken in the first semester will be examined in January) and coursework or continuous assessment consisting of a number of assignments. Assignments may be individual assignments, group assignments, presentations, and business reports. Students thus have every opportunity to develop key-skills in the use of Information Technology to gather, coordinate and present information, and also their confidence in presentation. Typically continuous assessment might count for approximately 30% of the total mark, with examinations weighted at 70% but the proportion can vary considerably between modules.
