Why study this course?

This is a top-up version of our Business Management BA (Hons) degree. A top-up degree is the final year (Level 6) of an undergraduate degree course and is for those who have a foundation degree, Higher National Diploma or equivalent qualification, or those wishing to study the final year of their degree in London.

This course, designed in conjunction with leading industry experts, will equip you with vital business skills and an excellent understanding of contemporary business themes.

More about this course

This course will provide you with key business skills and the knowledge necessary to succeed in global organisations. You’ll study a broad range of subjects such as economics, human resources, marketing and strategy, and apply this theoretical knowledge to real-life contemporary case studies.

You'll also hear from specialist guest lecturers and participate in online business simulations. This will ensure that you graduate with an in-depth understanding of all stages of the business management process, from conceptualisation to strategic evaluation.

During your studies you'll have access to the University's specialist business incubator Accelerator. The Accelerator will give you a chance to exercise your entrepreneurial spirit by participating in workshops and talks. It also has an array of connections with the business world, allowing you to network with the people who are able to elevate you to business success.

Assessment

You'll be assessed through individual reports, business plans, group presentations and seen/unseen exams. Some modules will require you to produce an e-portfolio including real-life investigations and tasks. The final year dissertation will allow you to utilise all previously learnt knowledge and apply it to a self-designed research study within the subject area. Throughout your studies, you'll have one-to-one support from your supervisor.
