Business & Management

Overview

This course is designed to give you a comprehensive understanding of how business works. You will develop the skills and competencies needed to successfully plan and control organisational operations as a business manager. This flexible course is delivered online, making it accessible to you anywhere in the world, and it will provide an excellent start to your career as a business professional. We currently attract students from across the globe and you will interact with your fellow learners using our Virtual Learning Environment. You can continue to work and build up your business experience while you study for an internationally recognised qualification.
You won't be confined to the classroom, you'll have many opportunities to gain real-life business expertise and hands-on practice, such as workshops or seminars to enhance your presentations skills.

Our Guest Lecture Series allow you to glean the secrets of business leaders' successes - past visitors have included the CEO of the London Stock Exchange, the chief executive of the London Stock Exchange and the chief economist of Yorkshire Bank.

Business simulations can put your strategic thinking and acumen to the test in our brand new Hydra suite, for example, what would you do if your main supplier goes bust, or your lead product developer goes to work for the competition? If you relish the challenges of Wall Street, you'll have access to our Bloomberg terminal, where you can carry out online stock trading.

Our Study Abroad team can also arrange for you to study in America, Europe or New Zealand, giving you a truly global insight to business practices abroad.

You will learn from our expert teaching staff, several of whom have extensive research experience and all have professional business experience, with close working links with the business community.
