Overview

Learn how to manage dynamic and complex organisations. Gain an expert understanding of how businesses operate and develop the skills needed to become a strategic and successful manager. You will apply your business-theory knowledge in a client-facing consultancy project and you will gain the practical experience needed to impress potential employers. You will develop your understanding of business and management issues at both a national and a global level and across a wide array of industries and sectors.

You can opt to take a paid work placement in the third year of your course to develop and enhance your transferable employability skills. Our students have taken a paid placement year with top companies such as Disney, Warner Brothers, L'Oreal, Unilever, Marks and Spencer, VW and KPMG. Posts with these employers have included business analyst, project manager and account manager. We have a dedicated employability and placements office to support you and provide you with access to a wide range of vacancies from local, national and international employers. Pre-placement guidance and seminars are available on topics such as CV and letter writing, how to succeed at interview, assessment centres and psychometric tests.

You will be presented with opportunities to put your knowledge into practice, whether through in-class case study work, internships, study abroad or volunteering. Entrepreneurial skills are encouraged and developed through active participation in a range of national student competitions such as the IBM University Business Challenge.

We're dedicated to supporting your professional development - that's why we offer a guest lecture programme. Past speakers include the CEO of the London Stock Exchange, Shadow Chief Secretary to the Treasury, past Chair and President of the Academy of Marketing, Chief Executive of the British Bankers Association, the Chief Economist of Yorkshire Bank and the Editor of Cosmopolitan.
