Course outline

If you’re looking for a successful career in business management, this course provides the knowledge, understanding and skills you’ll need to manage teams and create value for a business. It’s also solid preparation for your move on to our Business Studies BA (Hons) Top-up Degree.

Modules include:

  • Marketing tools
  • Business finance
  • Employment law
  • Human resources management
  • Business decision-making
  • Research project

A final year research project module allows you to combine many of the skills you’ll have developed to produce findings about a particular area of interest. This will help with your progression should you decide to top up to an honours degree.

You’ll complete an industrial placement in your first year for which you may be able to use your current role. You’ll need to arrange this by February of the first year.

The course begins with a two-week business skills module to introduce you to the study and research skills required at higher education level.
