This course offers all students the option of a one-year paid work placement, to boost your employability even further. If you choose this route, you will take the placement following year two of your course, and then return to complete your degree.

Why take a placement?

A placement year is the perfect opportunity to gain valuable work experience, to build on the career skills we will teach you on this degree. The connections you make on the placement will improve your career prospects further, and equip you with the skills you need to secure graduate-level employment.

How we support you

The University's Placement and Work Experience Team are experts at helping you to secure a placement. They will work closely with you from the start, helping you research potential employers, discover placement opportunities, create and pitch your CV, and will coach you to perform well in interviews. We aren't able to guarantee a placement, but our sector-leading advisors will give you the best possible chance of securing one.

Find out more about how we'll support you

We understand that your plans might change once you start your programme. If you decide not to do a placement, you will have the option of completing the three year version of your programme.

Whatever your choice, you will have access to many opportunities for work experience through our Placement and Work Experience Team, and access to face-to-face and 24/7 online careers support.

Skills

Make your mark with the key competencies that matter most to employers.

In our rapidly changing world, employers need confident, independent thinkers, with the specialist knowledge and skills to adapt.

With our BSc Business Management and Finance, you’ll gain a solid foundation in the core aspects of management and finance, including:

  • The ability to identify and solve business problems
  • Communicating your ideas with impact

You’ll become a confident, independent thinker, with the ability to analyse financial markets and predict financial performance.

We’ll also help you to increase your employability through annual Business Readiness modules.

As your management and finance skills grow, you’ll develop the commercial acumen, emotional intelligence, and self-reflection you need to realise your goals.

And you can put these skills into practice with an optional work placement after Year 2. Fully supported by our Placement Office, this is a chance to gain real-world experience before you graduate and get paid while you make valuable connections.

An accredited programme

This course is dual accredited with a Chartered Management Institute (CMI) qualification. Students who complete the BSc Business Management at Roehampton are eligible for a CMI Level 5 qualification in Management and Leadership (subject to passing the required mapped CMI modules and CMI moderation).

Learning

Belong, believe and achieve through our practical approach to business management and finance.

We deliver a modern, practice-based curriculum, and a Business School that has a strong focus on sustainability.

In high-spec facilities, like our Business Laboratory and new Bloomberg Trading Room, you’ll explore:

  • Business ethics
  • Responsible management
  • Corporate strategy
  • Business finance in depth

You'll develop a deeper understanding of how financial institutions and monetary systems operate. You’ll also take a Business Readiness module each year, designed in line with the CMI’s employability framework to help you develop key skills.

Our faculty of academic experts and working professionals will guide you through a blended mix of:

  • Lectures
  • Seminars
  • Independent learning
  • Online study skills
  • Assessment preparation sessions

As our courses are taught over no more than three days per week, you’ll have the flexibility to take on paid part-time work, placements, or internships – gaining real-world experience before you graduate.

We apply world-leading research and the latest thinking to your studies to help you develop a global mindset. You can also gain international experience through an optional semester abroad, with Roehampton Abroad scholarships of up to £1,000 available to help with the cost.

Assessment

Benefit from assessments that prepare you for life beyond university.

You'll be assessed using a wide range of theory and practical assessments that replicate the world of business today. This includes coursework, reports, exams (on Accountancy and Finance modules only) and online tests. 

Other types of assessments include portfolio evaluation, case studies, critical poster, consultancy projects and using the Bloomberg terminal to track performance of a live asset.

All of these methods will help you demonstrate the breath and knowledge you've learnt. 

Between Years 2 and 3, you can choose to enhance your practical work experience by applying for a year-long paid professional placement.

With its optional paid work placement and accreditation with the CMI, our BSc Business Management and Finance degree is the ideal launchpad for careers in:

  • Corporate finance, banking, insurance and business consultancy

Wherever you want to go in the future, you’ll be preparing for the world of work from day one at Roehampton, with regular access to:
