Business & Management

An introduction to the fundamental elements of modern business

How do businesses develop strategies, manage risk and undertake decision-making?

What makes an individual a good business leader?

By the end of the Business and Management programme, students will have the knowledge and understanding to be able to answer these questions succinctly and effectively.

The programme covers a wide range of subjects, including accounting, strategy and marketing, providing students with a comprehensive introduction to the undergraduate level syllabus.

Students will better their understanding of modern business through the study of key business disciplines, such as marketing, organisational behavior and operations management. Our programme explores wider business considerations such as markets, environments and processes and how they may impact an organisation.

Topics may include:

  • Organisational Behaviour
  • Marketing
  • Economics
  • Strategy
  • Operations Management
  • Accounting and Finance
  • People Management
  • Ethical and Responsible Management

The programme will also ask students to consider the changes organisations have had to make in order to succeed in a modern business environment and will spend time learning how a business operates on a daily basis. We work with specific case studies from the Harvard Business School and provide students with a solid grounding in the major areas of business practice on a practical, applicable level. Students will also have the opportunity to meet with a real entrepreneur, so they can listen to first-hand insights about what it takes to run a business.

The course explores a number of subjects from the social sciences, such as psychology, economics and sociology. As well as developing business acumen, students will learn the skills required to be the next generation of inspiring managers, whether in business, social enterprises or governments around the world.

Students will complete this course with a comprehensive understanding of the essential principles of both Business and Management. They will leave with a strong theoretical grounding in management practice combined with an improved business sense and ultimately, a heightened passion to put their newfound learning into practice in the modern business environment.
