With the skills, expertise and experience you’ll gain from studying for a degree in business, you’ll be prepared to build a successful career – from accountancy and auditing to marketing, management and law or running your own company.

Our academics have extensive industry experience and contacts in businesses and networks across the sector. This ensures that our programmes remain current and address the needs and requirements of employers.

Having professional experience is crucial to standing out in a competitive job market, which is why all our undergraduate degrees include professional work placements.

These opportunities help you gain relevant experience, as well as the chance to make valuable employer contacts.

We’ll also provide you with the personal support you need to develop the confidence and skills to interact with business issues and develop practical, effective solutions; putting everything you learn into practice and laying the foundations for a successful career.

Depending on your course, you can also add to your university experience and enhance your CV by taking the opportunity to study, work or volunteer overseas.

Many of our undergraduate degrees can be studied as a four-year course, beginning with the associated Foundation Year.
