Course Summary

On this flexible course you will learn key management principles and refine your critical insight. You’ll learn how to take a business idea from first proposal to real-world profit. You’ll gain practical business experience and develop skills that will give you an employability edge. The course is specifically designed for anyone who may be looking to complement their non-business degree and has little or no prior business background, and may also interest those who have completed a business degree to ordinary level and be aiming to enhance their qualifications.

On this course you’ll focus on best practice in international management and leadership, preparing you for a wide range of careers. You will study a range of modules covering all the core functions of management and including the commercial business, community, and voluntary or social enterprise sectors. You’ll also put this theoretical understanding into action by creating a practical project in conjunction with a ‘real client’ instead of a dissertation. The course content reflects our desire to ensure that graduates are fully aware of the wider societal impact of business, and of the responsibility of managers and leaders toward business and global sustainability. The course is also flexible – you can learn full- or part-time and you don’t have to have studied business before.
