About Business and Law at Anglia Ruskin University

Our business courses are structured to encourage you to develop your creativity, enterprise and problem-solving abilities as part of a wide range of skills and knowledge relevant to modern business. The courses have a very strong vocational orientation. On completion, you will have developed a range of relevant work skills that will make you attractive to potential employers. The flexibility of the routes allows you to pursue your own interests. The structures ensure that all programmes are coherent at every stage, and that knowledge and skills are developed progressively throughout your course.

Course content

The courses available allow you to follow specialist interests in important areas of business. You do not have to make your choices prior to entering your programme, which means you can find out what interests you, what you are good at and how you want your career to develop before committing yourself to a fixed set of subjects.

There is a common first year in the following degrees: Business Management, Marketing, Human Resource Management, Accounting, Business Economics and International Business. You will take modules that develop basic business skills such as numeracy, information technology and working with people.

BA (Hons) Business and Law

What students think about Anglia Ruskin University

    Xinxin, from China studying MA International Communications

    I really like the support the University offers to the students. The support is always there to help you in all areas of life, academically and employment, personally I have benefited from those services a lot, when you’re coming into a different country it can feel overwhelming to you, but our University makes you feel you are a part of it, like it’s your home. Whenever you have challenges, issues or you’re confused, or don’t know what to do you can always find help.

    Business Consultant placement at Cashaa Ltd. Currently, Founder and CEO of WharfStreetStrategies

    "Placement plays a very important role in one’s career by teaching them how to implement what they have learnt by giving them a real-time experience. The biggest benefit was that this placement opened many doors for me as I outperformed my tasks and this was noticed by other business start-ups in the market.As I have learnt how to manage a firm in terms of operations, technology, marketing, staffing, management and strategies I am highly obliged to ARU for bestowing this opportunity onto me. Thus, this gave me an amazing experience by linking my studies and placement. I have currently started my firm WharfStreetStrategies as I always wanted to. ARU has been continuously assisting me and supporting me morally at every step to make this happen."

    Nikki Dekker, BA History, University of New Brunswick, Canada

    The best part of my study abroad experience was increasing my independence and confidence in my abilities. Pushing myself to meet people and make friends made studying abroad an invaluable experience that I will remember for the rest of my life.
