Course Description

Develop the skills you need for a managerial career in any sector, both in the UK and internationally.

You’ll build a broad foundation of knowledge on all aspects of business and management, ensuring you graduate as a well-rounded professional with excellent commercial awareness.

The programme covers core business concepts in the first year of study, including:

  • Accounting
  • Marketing
  • Business economics
  • Operations and information systems management

You can then tailor your studies to emerging areas of interest or career aspirations through a wide range of specialist modules.

A sandwich placement year, taken in year three of the programme, enables you to develop your skills and professional confidence - and boosts your employability on graduation.

There is a strong emphasis on teaching that is informed by the latest research and commercial best practice, as well as a focus on employability, sustainable development and global corporate responsibility.

Placement

This 4-year programme offers you the opportunity to take up a placement year working in business in your third year.

Placements are real, paid jobs in a wide variety of organisations in the private, public and not-for-profit sectors and offer you an invaluable opportunity to experience first-hand how business and management concepts are applied in practice, and to give you direct exposure to real issues in the workplace. It can also be done abroad.

In a competitive graduate market, valuable experience and employability skills gained from a year’s work placement will differentiate you from the thousands of other graduates seeking work.

We find that students return from their placement year with their confidence and personal skills enhanced and ready to implement their focused plan for the future.

The School of Management has an excellent network of organisations that offer placements including:

    • IBM
  • Vauxhall
    • NHS
  • GE Money
  • Arris (formerly PACE)
  • Enterprise Rent A Car
  • Cummins
  • Peugeot

Together we ensure your placement is appropriately challenging and that you can make a real and positive impact on the business.
