Accredited by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI), all our Business and Management degrees ensure you develop essential skills, knowledge and experience while completing a Level 5 Diploma in Leadership and Management as part of your studies. This means potential employers will be confident that you are ‘career ready’ to do anything from working for a multinational corporation to starting and running your own business.
In your first year, you’ll gain solid grounding in all aspects of business and management. In your second and third year, you will continue to develop knowledge and expertise in business and management but also choose a specialist career path. Choose from business and management, human resource management, entrepreneurship & innovation, digital business and business law.
On the Business and Management stream you will develop your live project management skills exploring alternative approaches to planning, execution, and operations, and learn how project management success can be judged. We will also challenge you to stretch your global commercial awareness with an international focus on business. In your final year you will take part in a management consultancy module, where you will have the unique opportunity to experiment in simulated consultancy exercises, before applying what you’ve learnt in a live consultancy project for a business. On successful completion of this module you will gain a nationally recognized CMI qualification in Professional Consultancy.
Throughout your degree, you’ll draw on the expertise of lecturers with extensive professional credentials and research experience, as well as learning from inspiring industry guest speakers.
