Business, BSc Hons

The programme is designed to fulfil the needs of practitioners and employers in a fast changing economic environment. The programme emphasises the analytical aspects of business, and focuses on applied research and management models which can be used to achieve superior business performance. You will also learn how to develop and manage businesses, taking into account emerging business issues, such as sustainability, the financial crisis and technological innovation.

Graduates from the programme will be effective at managing, analysing and making decisions based on quantifiable information. The vocational elements are built into the curriculum to meet the needs from employers, and the work-related teaching and learning is adopted to encourage you to form your own opinions and critique relevant theory. Work-related teaching and learning will also provide opportunities for you to work with business professionals or local communities on live projects. Direct entry to Year 2 or 3 is available for qualified applicants. You may also apply to participate in overseas exchanges with our Erasmus partners.

The aims of the programme are:

  • To equip you with knowledge of business management and the changing external environment in which business operates
  • To prepare you for a career in business development and management by equipping you with systematic, broad and integrated understanding of key aspects of business
  • To equip you with capabilities to solve problems systematically and creatively.

"The course I did at the university gave me the foundation I needed in business. At 18 years of age it's hard to decide your career path. The degree avoids focusing on one niche area in business and focus on all areas of business."

"The business side of my programme is really interesting because I do everything generally to do with business, so you could be managing processes or be managing people."
