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
Beginning with the core modules studied in your first year, an industry focus underpins the entirety of the Business and Management programme. From the understanding of key business concepts developed in the first year of the course, you will go on to explore more specialised theories and learn skills that will be transferrable across multiple business functions.
The business landscape is constantly evolving; by aligning our syllabus with current business trends, we ensure you are equipped with highly employable skills. Modules like Management of Business Operations, the Dissertation and Project Management help to transform you from an ambitious individual into a skilled and business-minded graduate.
This innovative module has been nominated for the Course and Curriculum Design award in the 2018 Guardian University Awards. One participant commented “It was thanks to this module that I gained a much better understanding of what employers are looking for and where I stand in comparison to that from the marks and feedback received… This proves to me I do have the experience and competencies sought after by employers. Realising this has really boosted my confidence.”
