Course summary

This degree offers you the chance to strengthen your skills, knowledge and confidence before you advance to stage one of your honours degree.

Why choose this course?

Accredited by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI), you’ll begin by covering all aspects of business management to find out where your passions and talents lie. Then, you can continue on a general Business Management pathway with plenty of optional modules, or choose a more specialist pathway that combines Business Management with: Business Technology, Enterprise, Finance, Human Resource Management, Marketing, or Supply Chain and Logistics.

Is this course for you?

Including a foundation year as part of your four-year study programme will give you a head start in your academic and professional life. The foundation year offers the chance to strengthen your skills, knowledge and confidence - with extensive support from our expert staff - before you advance to stage one of your honours degree. It could also be beneficial if you are planning a career change and want to get to grips with aspects of subjects which are new to you. Our degrees with a foundation year are continuous, meaning that you won’t need to apply again once you have successfully completed the first year.

How you will learn

From the get-go, you'll be thinking about how to apply what you're learning, through topical case studies, business simulations, real consultancy projects and work placements.

Opportunities and experiences

Ours was the UKs first course to guarantee every student an external Chartered Management Institute (CMI) mentor throughout their studies. Mentors coach you from a business perspective and demonstrate how management theory can be applied in the workplace. You'll also have the opportunity to take an optional placement year or summer internship.

Careers and employability

All pathways are accredited by the Chartered Management Institute, which means you gain an extra professional qualification on top of your degree as well as professional mentoring and access to CMI member benefits. Most of the specialist pathways are also approved by other professional bodies - the Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM), the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) and the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD). These accreditations give you extra credibility and exemptions from future professional exams.
