The aim of the programme is to support and develop students for careers in the areas of Business and Management. The programme has been developed in a way which explores each of these strands progressively, whilst maintaining a holistic view of business within various contexts.
The Business strand introduces students initially to the scope and functions of business and gradually develops their understanding of the internal and external environment in which businesses operate. The Management strand takes basic management concepts and theories to a contemporary and practical level and integrates organisational behaviour aspects with management and decision-making.
Within their first year, students are introduced to areas such as criticality and academic writing, in addition to developing a portfolio to support their professional development.
In the second year students focus on research skills and developing their skills of enquiry in preparation for their final year Business Project (work-based focused). This also helps prepare them for their honours year modules (e.g. dissertation) should they wish to progress on to the final year BA (Hons) Top-Up.
