The BA Business Management programme is a three-year full-time course designed to provide students with all the necessary business skills to excel in their chosen field or carry on with postgraduate studies.
Students who wish to study this programme may come from a wide variety of subject backgrounds, including, but not necessarily business management. This programme suits those who prefer to learn a broad repertoire of business skills, rather than focusing on one specialism.
This involves learning core business skills relating to, for example, marketing, human resources, information systems/e-Business, accounting and finance. Students would undertake a range of tasks associated with business organisations and would enjoy developing sophisticated solutions to business problems and opportunities.
Given the broad range of skills learned, graduates would have many career opportunities in a diverse range of business roles (e.g. marketing, HR, project management, etc.) in a wide range of sectors. This programme is also suitable as a stepping stone for those who wish to develop a specialism after a general business education and for those who wish to become business teachers or as a route to self-employment.
Classes are taught at weekends. The University will aim to deliver the taught sessions over 2 days per week (Saturday and Sunday), 4 hours each day over 3 terms.
