The programme is designed to fulfil the needs of practitioners and employers in a fast changing economic environment. The programme emphasises the analytical aspects of business, and focuses on applied research and management models which can be used to achieve superior business performance. You will also learn how to develop and manage businesses, taking into account emerging business issues, such as sustainability, the financial crisis and technological innovation.
Graduates from the programme will be effective at managing, analysing and making decisions based on quantifiable information. The vocational elements are built into the curriculum to meet the needs from employers, and the work-related teaching and learning is adopted to encourage you to form your own opinions and critique relevant theory. Work-related teaching and learning will also provide opportunities for you to work with business professionals or local communities on live projects.
Direct entry to Year 2 and Year 3 is available for qualified applicants. You may also apply to participate in overseas exchanges with our Erasmus partners.
