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.

Study Abroad

This course has the option of studying abroad as part of your degree in your second semester of second year.

With Roehampton Abroad scholarships of up to £1,000 and Turing Scheme funding available, you could spend a semester at one of our partner universities across the globe, with destinations including the USA, Australia, New Zealand, Asia and Europe.

Make your mark with the professional skills that matter most to employers.

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

With our BSc Business Management, you’ll gain a solid foundation in the core aspects of corporate life, including:

  • Managing people and logistics in a multicultural environment
  • Accounting and finance
  • Data analysis
  • Marketing
  • Consumer behaviour
  • Operations, logistics and supply chains

You’ll learn how to identify and solve problems and to communicate your ideas with impact. We’ll also help you to increase your employability through annual Business Readiness modules.

As your project management and leadership 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.

Please note: 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).

How you'll be assessed
