Course summary

The course starts with a foundation year 0, specifically designed to introduce and develop essential skills for success in Higher Education, including critical thinking and research skills, and the knowledge and understanding of key facets of business, accounting and economics. Upon successful completion of the foundation year, you will successfully progress on to the two-year version of the BSc (Hons) Business Management course.Specially designed with concentrated periods of learning, you’ll gain the same skills and experience in managing people, projects and resources as on the three-year course. However, you’ll graduate with a full honours degree a whole year sooner. With our course you’ll get ahead of the game and make your mark on the business world.All undergraduate modules within Plymouth Business School have integrated within them a CV building activity, for example, through micro-credentialing; real world problem-based learning; or embedded direct employer activity. We do this because we know it is key to student academic and graduate success.- The foundation year is an integral part of the extended degree and you will benefit from experienced university lecturers. Whilst completion of the foundation year will not lead to a separate award or qualification in its own right, you will be able to confidently progress to programmes within our suite of courses in Plymouth Business School.- Complete your degree in three years, entering the graduate employment market one year earlier than your peers. Demonstrate your commitment and ability to work hard and consistently, and manage your time to meet deadlines by choosing to take the fast-track route to an honours degree. You will also benefit from lower fees and a year less in terms of outlay for accommodation and living expenses.- We recognise that our students are unique, coming from all over the world, with different backgrounds and interests. We believe that your degree should be as unique as you are, and that you should have the flexibility to tailor your degree to your interests. Study the topics you are interested in and graduate with a specialist business management degree of your choice.- We appreciate that students learn in different ways. As such you will be challenged through both practical and theoretically derived assessments. You will apply knowledge to real business contexts and undertake tasks related to real world practice.- Join the Devon Junior Chamber, engage with industry employers and receive training and professional mentoring.
