The multidisciplinary nature of this degree prepares you for work in many areas of business and is an excellent foundation for careers in commerce, marketing, human resources and financial management.

This is a broad and comprehensive qualification that will provide you with a sound understanding of, and skills in, administering and managing a business. You will cover core modules such as Business Management, Economics, Project Management, Business Ethics, Business Law and Financial Management. You also cover subject areas such as Business English and Computer Skills, as well as a choice of specialist elective groups with major subjects.
