This course will teach you specific, practical skills that are directly applicable to potential careers, while giving you a broad enough education to remain flexible and adaptable to different industries. The course also incorporates teaching in entrepreneurship that will be valuable for students who want to start their own businesses – our very own Knowledge Dock is an on-campus resource that can help you incubate your business ideas and secure funding.
The structure of the course ensures you will be exposed to the principles and practice of various business functions; from human resources and finance, to marketing and business law. This breadth of topics ensures you’ll have a highly sought-after skillset, and accreditation from the Chartered Management Institute ensures those skills are relevant and attractive to employers.
Our location in East London gives us access to some of the most iconic, innovative and dynamic businesses in the world; from the established financial centre of Canary Wharf, to booming Stratford and the surrounding area known as the ‘Silicon Roundabout’.

This business-led approach extends all the way through the course, with the opportunity to learn from business leaders in the region, visit local organisations and network with professionals.
