The programme offers an education in general business and management which puts emphasis on personal development and employability.The course features a range of modules covering the core business functions, introducing marketing, human resources, finance, business organisations and a work-based learning project with a local employer. Work Based Learning (WBL) and engagement with employers is central to the Foundation Degree concept and has been embraced in this programme in accordance with the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) Foundation Degree Benchmark statement (2015). The Programme has been designed to reflect the real life experience of working in a business context, developing students to work independently and in teams.
