Why study this course?

Our Digital Business Management BSc degree focuses on developing your intellectual competency in business, while providing you with the necessary practical knowledge for a successful career in project management and related fields.

More about this course

During the course you’ll learn to critically analyse business environments and the  economic, environmental, political and sociological factors that influence them. You’ll also consider these factors alongside their effects at local, national and global levels on the strategy, behaviour and management of organisations. These skills are highly valued in the contemporary business settings and you’ll not only develop your knowledge of how the business world operates in the digital era, but also gain practical skills in project management.

On graduation you’ll be able to demonstrate a sound understanding and knowledge of the various processes, procedures and practices for effective management of organisations, including theoretical models, frameworks and other processes of decision making in large projects.

The University’s business incubator, Accelerator, will prove an invaluable resource for flexing your entrepreneurial muscles. Throughout your time at the University you'll have the option to visit the Accelerator facilities and to participate in sessions and competitions.


We'll assess your academic, professional and practical skills' development via a variety of forms including reports, essays, portfolios, presentations and videos.
