You will also have access to our extensive range of employability events, including workshops, expert business speakers – e.g. members of our Advisory Board – and employer exhibitions. Alongside this, we provide a wide range of other opportunities to develop and learn, including a career mentoring scheme and student-led Business Society.

You will graduate confident about your personal values, with knowledge and experience to solve business problems ethically and with an ongoing passion for learning and development.

Course content

Throughout your three year degree there is a focus on supporting you to develop and track your own increasing ability to add value to organisations. This is achieved through our Business Readiness module where, working with your Personal Tutor, you will gather evidence of your knowledge, attributes and skills. This will demonstrate to prospective employers how you can play a key role in whichever organisations you work for.

In your first year, you will learn to recognise your personal strengths and weaknesses through a process of self-assessment and reflection, and understand your role in a team. You will practice these skills in a variety of team problem-based activities and scenarios. You will also establish an overview of business organisations in a global context and be introduced to key areas of business such as finance, marketing and data analysis.

Your second year will continue to develop your business readiness, and you will gain experience of management, from managing people across different cultures, to supply chain and project management.

In your third year, you will progress to understandings corporate strategy and business ethics. You will also be able to develop a deeper understanding of key areas such as finance and banking, or global marketing. There is a focus on specific subjects through options, such as developing an understanding of branding and Human Resource management on an international scale. You could also go deeper into the theory and practice of entrepreneurship.
