Understanding the principles of how businesses operate and succeed is key to our established Business Management programme, which offers a broad scope of knowledge with the flexibility to specialise later in the course.
Combining rigorous academic study with practical social and operational skills, our BA Business Management will give you a comprehensive understanding of core business issues.
In the first year you’ll study Introduction to Behaviour at Work, Management Themes and Perspectives, Business in Context and Business Economics, as well as skills-based modules covering essential accounting and maths techniques.
Building on the core knowledge base founded in year one, students are encouraged to start thinking about employability and careers at an early stage.
In years two and three, students tailor their degree based on future career plans. From Law for Management and Issues in Corporate Governance to International Marketing and Critical Perspectives in Work and Organisational Psychology, modules vary from the creative to the technical but are all relevant to the modern workplace and taught by leaders in their fields.
Many of the modules are taught using case-studies, so you benefit from the subject matter being put in a real-world context. We also utilise our excellent relationships with businesses and alumni, fostered by a dedicated External Relations team, so BA Business Management students regularly have the opportunity to learn from and network with professionals in a range of sectors. Our module in Operations and Supply Chain Management is run in association with Rolls-Royce. This module’s relationship with industry sees students enjoying lectures from Rolls-Royce speakers, supported by tutorials and seminars held at the school. An integrated case-study and business/simulation game sponsored by Rolls-Royce is also used as the basis for a group project, with a prize awarded by the company’s executives to our best group.
