The difference between this degree and BA Management and Business is that it includes an additional one-year work placement after the second year.

The course focuses on the business environment. It covers cultural context, markets and the legal, financial and ethical constraints under which firms operate. You will also study strategy, marketing, entrepreneurship and the internal aspects of a firm.

It will prepare you for professional roles in both the public and private sectors.

We are ranked sixth in the UK for graduate career prospects in Business, Management and Marketing (The Guardian University Guide 2018).

As a graduate of Henley Business School you will join our global alumni network, home to more than 68,000 alumni in more than 150 countries.

Our graduates enter a wide range of careers including banking and finance, consultancy, management and accountancy. In some cases successful placements lead to the offer of a permanent role within the same organisation upon graduation.

Placement

All of our undergraduate degree programmes in accounting, business and management provide you with the opportunity to take a one-year industry placement between your second and final year of study, which we encourage students to do.

A successful industry placement can also lead to a job offer with your placement company upon graduation. You will also have plenty of opportunity to develop excellent professional contacts that will stand you in good stead for the future.

Our careers team will provide you with expert advice and guidance – from helping choosing the right industry placement through to supporting you while working during your third year. To support you while applying we provide workshops covering all the main selection methods used by employers. This includes competency interview training, CV, cover letter and application form advice and drop-in clinics.
