About this course

Our research-academics' approach to learning and teaching is grounded in the most recent research and scholarship related to core business management and administration specialisms. They’ll help you develop strong analytical skills, the ability to address complex business problems and implement appropriate solutions.

We keep our class sizes small so we can give you the personal support you need to flourish – whether you’re a recent graduate or an experienced business professional. You’ll also work closely with employers on two management consultancy projects, which will give you the chance to make employer connections and build your business portfolio.

This is a UK-based degree with a global perspective, drawing on a range of case studies, research and theory from across the world. You’ll explore a range of international perspectives, ensuring you graduate with the relevant skills to succeed in today’s global economy. By the time you graduate, you’ll have developed:

  • advanced knowledge of organisations, their management and the changing external context in which they operate
  • your ability to apply knowledge and understanding of business and management to complex issues, both systematically and creatively, to improve business and management practice
  • a wide array of professional skills that will enhance your employability, such as communication/presentation, teamwork, leadership, problem-solving, analysis and decision-making
  • lifelong learning skills that will enable you to work with self-direction and originality to contribute to business and society at large
