Course overview

The course will provide students with an opportunity to explore and apply a broad range of theories, concepts and techniques, focusing on the wider business landscape and current industry practice.
Our degree programmes aim to give students the ability and confidence to reflect, research, analyse, solve problems, make decisions and propose change effectively in any business environment. We use our local business links to incorporate case studies, guest speakers and visits to bring the curriculum to life, and to provide opportunities for networking.
Students will be taught by experienced and supportive lecturers and receive dedicated support to help them to adjust to a return to study (and to develop their academic skills) often alongside employment. Our small class sizes also mean that feedback is thorough and developmental, and that every learner is treated as an individual.
