Semesters 1 and 2 are designed to provide students with a broad grounding in the subjects of Business and Management and include the history of management, management practice, organisational behaviour, decision making for business, change and business innovation. Analytical techniques that underpin business activity and management are also introduced. Modules will be taught alongside students from Business Studies, Human Resource Management, Marketing and Retail Marketing.
Year 2 entry is available for suitably qualified candidates who can expect a seamless transition into Semester 3.
In Semesters 3-7 compulsory core modules provide theory and applications of management. Core modules may include Fundamentals of Management, Operations Management, Leadership and Management, Responsible Business/Ethics, Project Management and Strategic Management. Students are encouraged to take electives in Accounting & Finance for Managers and Economics for Managers.
You will have numerous opportunities to develop appropriate work-related skills at every stage of your studies, culminating in the Professional Development and Practice module in Semester 8 which helps you prepare for entering the workplace.
This course is not available as a Combined Degree.
Teaching and assessment
Lectures, seminars, tutorials, computer-based workshops and case studies are supplemented by occasional industrial visits. A feature of the final Honours Semester 8 is that the project can be based on a ‘business’ firm or service, in which you are encouraged to investigate a particular management problem and write a dissertation about it for assessment.
