Business Management

Our BSc Business Management programme provides a broad education across the range of business and management subjects and can be tailored to your professional interests.

We focus on developing a solid foundation of core knowledge in the area of business management through a universal first year. You will study seven compulsory modules to achieve a broad understanding of different business and management contexts and processes.

From here, you can choose to specialise in areas that you find stimulating and reflect your career aspirations by following a distinct pathway (Marketing, Human Resource Management, International Management, Logistics and Operations).

“I was taken aback by the vibrant city, friendly people, and first class university facilities. I’ve made some lifelong friends, grown in independence and confidence, and have left with a thirst for an exciting career in marketing.”

Aylish Chipman, BSc Business Management (Marketing) graduate

Because of this broad based approach, we can offer a certain amount of flexibility allowing you to transfer to another programme at the end of the first year if you discover that one of the specialist routes holds greater interest for you and your future.

You can also choose to combine your studies with a language (German, French, Italian, Spanish or Japanese) and spend a year abroad at one of our partner institutions.
