Course summary

COURSE OVERVIEWThis course is offered as a four year programme, including an initial Foundation Year. The Foundation Year will allow you to develop your academic study skills and build confidence in your abilities, identifying your own strengths and development needs for progression onto an undergraduate degree.Managing businesses and organisations today takes serious leadership skills. To ensure future success, companies are constantly on the lookout for skilled and qualified leaders.Employers want graduates who are not just academically qualified, but are also work-ready with professional skills in management and leadership. This course equips you with the skills to become a confident and successful manager.BECOME BUSINESS-READYFor the new generation of managers, change is the only consistency. This programme equips you with not only the knowledge and understanding of contemporary best practice in strategic international management, but will help develop your personal skills to prepare you for your first roles in management, or for running your own business.On this programme you will develop a good understanding of the nature of business management in a world of volatility, uncertainty, change and ambiguity.A key feature of the programme is to blend both academic study and skills development in order to enhance the employability of our graduates.You will develop key skills, such as empathy, problem solving and creativity, which will ensure you are well placed to enter the employment market. These skills are increasingly important in a world with technology and Artificial Intelligence (AI) are now fulfilling key business activities.You will also learn about how technology is impacting business, so that you can understand how technology can underpin innovation and improvements to business and organisations.Chartered Management Institute (CMI) refer frequently to ‘accidental managers’ within business; those people who have been promoted due to competence in one role but who are not trained or equipped to be managers. By focusing on this element within our degree programmes, we will ensure that you have already started to develop management and leadership skills in readiness for the workplace.Academics who teach on the programme have a wide range of experience and ongoing links with industry. With smaller, more intimate class sizes, we give our students one-to-one teaching and support.You will have the opportunity to collaborate on projects and live briefs with students from other business management degree programmes, gaining the practical and transferable skills you need for your career.PRACTICAL LEARNINGThe course focuses on the ability to think critically and will enable you to analyse and evaluate solutions to complex, real-life problems.We focus on equipping you with the knowledge of contemporary management theories but, of equal importance, giving you the opportunity to apply and integrate that knowledge in live projects.Guest lecturers will be used throughout the programme to also demonstrate the relevance of the teaching in a business context.Our students are often asked to develop solutions for a wide-range of businesses. This allows you to gain real-world, hands-on experience while businesses benefit from having dedicated consultants to carry out research and offer advice tailored to their needs. We’ve had students consulting major companies as well as helping start-ups to get their businesses on the move.Some of the large companies we have worked with include Dreams, Softcat, Enterprise-rent-a-car, Sacla, Dow Chemicals and the NHS. We have also worked with local businesses such as Hearing Dogs for Deaf People and KVA Digital.WHO IS IT FOR?This programme is ideal for students interested in developing business knowledge an
