You will have access to our strong professional networks and be taught by business professionals and researchers. You will gain practical experience through work placements, live projects and business simulations, which are fun as well as a great learning experience.

You will explore areas including:

  • project management
  • management of operations
  • financial management
  • human resource management.

The aim of this course is to provide a sound and relevant educational foundation for a range of professional management roles in industry, commerce, the service sector and self­employment. Professional body accreditation of modules gives you the option to gain qualifications from professional bodies such as the Association for Project Management (APM) and the Chartered Management Institute (CMI). We believe this enhances our programmes, linking academic achievement with the requirements of leading professional bodies. It will also develop the knowledge necessary for postgraduate study, and career development within the business and management field.

The aim for students in all programmes within the Business School undergraduate suite, is to enable them to obtain a sound understanding of theory in business management and its application in practice. There are many opportunities for work experience to prepare you for future employment.

You will develop a range of transferable business skills including communication, IT, research and team­working skills, which are essential for any career in business.

On successful completion of the course, you will gain the required academic and professional knowledge, skills and values to enable you to work independently and collaboratively to promote effective business solutions, within a changeable business environment.

Successful graduates are equipped to enter a range of professional and business roles. Graduate employment has included accountancy, financial service, retailing, leisure management, marketing, human resource and public sector management. The Erasmus exchange programme provides opportunities for students to study in Europe for part of the degree.

The Management degree opens up career routes into any sector and prepares you for further postgraduate study at all levels through to PhD.

Wherever your career aspirations lie, a successfully­completed Management degree will equip you with both the specific and generic knowledge and skills that are transferable and valued by many organisations.

The University operates under a system of semesterisation with 3 modules being studied in each semester.

On average, you should expect to study for 35 hours per week during term­time.

This mixture is intended to build individual knowledge and skills in the application of theory and best practice to realistic business scenarios. It also provides valuable experience in the importance of effective teamwork and leadership in achieving goals.

Professional accreditation

The Business School recognises the importance of professional body accreditation, to ensure that not only do we deliver well researched courses, but also that our students meet the professional expectations of prospective employers and have the opportunity to gain professional body qualifications.

This includes modules accredited by the Association of Project Management (APM). Our Project Management module was the first from a university to gain accreditation and exemption for its teaching and assessment.

The Business School has accreditation with the Chartered Management Institute (CMI). The year two modules of Management and Leadership, Project Management and Human Resource Management are accredited by the CMI and on successful completion you will be eligible for CMI Level 5 qualifications in Leadership and Management.

Specialist facilities

You will have access to our Bloomberg Trading Room. This offers you the chance to gain practical experience of trade floor activities and financial market analysis. We are one of the few universities in the UK offering direct use of Bloomberg data, information and analytics in a dedicated trading room which provides a simulation of what it is like to work on a real trading floor in the financial district.

Industry links

We work with industry stakeholders aligned to the continued development of our teaching programme, research and knowledge exchange. Some of these come in as guest lecturers and we also have masterclasses by visiting professors chosen for their continuing expertise in business and management. These established links have helped some of our students to secure placements.

A Business School Advisory Board has been established which includes representatives from across the private and public sector. This encourages employer engagement as the Board engages in discussion about technical content of the curriculum and the development of wider employability skills, the provision of work placement opportunities, guest speakers, live case studies, and workplace visits.
