BA (Hons) Business Management

BA (Hons) Business Management

As the global business environment continues to become competitive and challenging, businesses need to take more risks. They need to develop sustainable business models that serve their customers and have a positive impact on society. This course will help you understand how organisations are managed.

Management is about people, and we will help you to develop your own skills as a team player, a group member and as a manager of others. Your Business Management degree will allow you to specialise in management and gain an insight into how managers work to meet organisational objectives. Alongside this knowledge you will also develop the skills you will need to be effective as a future business leader in the dynamic digital age.

Special features of this course include accreditation by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI), giving you a professionally recognised qualification (Level 5 Diploma in Management and Leadership) alongside your degree. Throughout the course there are opportunities to engage with practising managers, organisations, employers and entrepreneurs and take part in work related experiences and internships.

As a Business School we are passionate about social responsibility and sustainability. These values and this commitment will be embedded throughout this course.
