Subject

Business and management

This two-year programme is designed to provide the essential skills, knowledge and understanding of business which will enable students to enter employment and/or progress to an honours top-up in Business disciplines. The programme offers an education in general business and management which puts emphasis on personal development and employability.

The course features a range of modules covering the core business functions, introducing marketing, human resources, finance, business organisations and a work-based learning project with a local employer. Work Based Learning (WBL) and engagement with employers is central to the Foundation Degree concept and has been embraced in this programme in accordance with the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) Foundation Degree Benchmark statement (2015). The Programme has been designed to reflect the real life experience of working in a business context, developing students to work independently and in teams. Engagement with employers is a focal point in the programme.

The benefits of studying a Foundation Degree at one of our partner colleges in Hertfordshire includes intensive tutorial support, easy access to tutors, small class sizes and use of all of the facilities on the University Campus in addition to the first class facilities at the college.

You gain a nationally recognised higher education qualification with a clear emphasis on practical work-based learning, personal development and employability – and benefit from a route on to a full honours degree, whilst saving money at the same time!

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.
