Course detail

- Description -

The course builds on graduates’ existing knowledge and skills by equipping them with the knowledge and skills necessary to effectively manage and lead within a range of industries, and to be able to add significant value through an integrated and critical understanding of business and management.

There is a strong practical focus on skills development. We believe that students who can demonstrate the ability to add value within a ‘live’ organisational context will always be a more attractive employment proposition than those who cannot. We provide ample opportunity for students to develop and demonstrate managerial-level knowledge and skills within the course itself. For example, students will engage in ‘live’ in-company projects with organisations throughout and within semester 1, they will be provided with the opportunity to create, and actively trade with, their own business start-up (and keep any profits!).

A 12 week ‘Internship and Management Project’ in semester 3 enables students to apply knowledge and skills acquired throughout the course to an organisational issue or problem, and, additionally, provides students with valuable experience of selling themselves to employers, gaining employment and acquiring and developing workplace skills which will enhance their future career prospects.

- Teaching and learning assessment -

All modules are taught by subject specialists and lectures are interactive and involve active participation of students.

Assessment is coursework-based with students completing innovative and practical assignments. For example students will think of a business idea, create a company and start trading for one particular module.

Career options

The course places a strong focus on enhancing the employment prospects of its graduates. Previous alumni have secured positions within large multinational organisations such as Diageo, PriceWaterhouse Coopers, Deloitte and KPMG as well as small to medium sized enterprises. Others have used the programme as a valuable springboard to gain a thorough understanding of business and management principles before starting up their own business.
