Course description

This programme is ideal if you’ve never studied business before and want to gain a solid knowledge base. Covering all aspects of general management, from managing people and finances to strategic planning, operations and marketing, this course produces work-ready graduates with the skills to succeed. 

In an age where there are so many specialists of different kinds, there is a need for graduates who see the whole picture, not just from one functional perspective. Every organisation needs generalists, whether as managers of multi-disciplinary teams, as directors of business operations, or working at board level as chief executives or presidents.

Challenge yourself to work hard, and we will provide you with all the knowledge necessary for a fruitful career in management, with knowledge and skills that are transferable across different business sectors.

On the Company Project module, you can apply to work as part of a team on a real-world problem for an external organisation, with the option to complete a company-based dissertation.
