Program Description

The BSc Business Management (Operations & Supply Management) with a Foundation Year, is for students with a clear interest in understanding how things (be it products or services) are made and in improving this transformation process. The pathway offers students the opportunity to focus on modules relating to operations management, supply chain management and project management.

The Foundation Year is an excellent pathway to gaining the required knowledge and skills in business, operations and supply management, before joining Year 1 students of the BSc Business Management (Operations and Supply Management) degree within the School of Management.

During your degree, as well as covering the core areas of business and management, you will develop the practical skills and mind-set required for a role in operations and supply management. The course is perfect for students who have a clear interest in understanding and approving how things are made, be it products or services.

Fees for full time Undergraduate EU/International students will increase by 3% for each subsequent year of study.
