This course helps you to develop skills essential for a career in modern business and management.
Through your study you’ll gain a broad understanding of business today and the practical management skills with which to become an effective manager. You’ll gain an understanding of the internal functions and structures of organisations as well as the contexts within which business operates. Our course will help you to develop the analytical skills needed both to solve a range of management problems and to competently use a number of management software packages. You’ll also learn to assess project risk (financial, technical and commercial), take an overall systems view and to make decisions that optimise desired objectives.
Management students also need to be able to communicate well. Business development plans need to be supported by engaging presentations to sell their ideas. You will also develop your individual skills of critical thinking, teamwork and leadership; be competent in analysing data and have the communication skills vital for translating good ideas into action.
During the degree course, you can take part in a personal and professional development module with a focus on developing key skills that employers are looking for. It also helps you prepare for, and make the effective transition into the workplace.
Our graduates have progressed to a wide range of careers. Some have taken up general line management, planning or business analysis roles, while others have joined consultancies offering specialist skills.
