Read about Stefanos Patelis' experiences on the Business & Management programme on his blog post
“For the past three years, my course has given me a great insight into how the business world works. Modules such as, ‘Business Statistics’, ‘Accounting’, ‘Human Resource Management’ and ‘Economics’, have enriched my knowledge of the field and taught me the basics about how to handle significant amounts of data, staff, operational activities, budgeting, and much more.”Stefanos Patelis - BSc Business and Management
This course allows you to either specialise or follow an integrated programme and the modular design gives you considerable choice.
Provides a foundation in business disciplines necessary to support the subjects studied in the second and final year. Students from a wide variety of education backgrounds are taught subjects to a common standard during this first year. This allows us to accept students without specific subject requirements.
The second year focus is on the management of business operations and functional areas; this will develop and deepen your understanding of the subjects in which you choose to specialise. You will take modules relating to core areas of management and continue to enhance your management skills as the programme unfolds. You may also continue to study a language.
You may wish to study a range of modules covering a number of major management functions.
All business and management students study the same modules in the first year, after which you are given the flexibility to review and change your options depending on which subjects interest you the most. This approach gives you a vital foundation in key business disciplines to support the subjects you go on to study in your second and final years. It also means that all students achieve the same level of business and management knowledge at the end of their first year.
