Department of Management
This is a four-year integrated Masters course, which allows you to gain higher-level skills and really stand out to employers. The first three years are broadly in common with the BA (Hons) Business Management degree, complemented with an integrated industrial experience. The fourth year is the Masters level study. The integrated industrial experience starts in the second-year, with students joining a student led consultancy practice operated through the University's business incubator. On completion of your studies, you will graduate with a Masters-level degree in Business.
Year 1 will give you a thorough grounding in finance and accounting, people management, business environment, and entrepreneurship. In Year 2 you will explore business operations, marketing, and ethical, social & ecological enterprise. You will also start your industrial experience in consultancy. Year 3 will focus on strategic management and leadership and two further units. You choose to specialise by selecting an option unit from a wide range of business disciplines, and you will take on management responsibility within the consultancy practice. In Year 4 you will further develop your global perspective and critical thinking skills, undertake a substantial consultancy project, and chose a specialist option unit.
Your career prospects after the course
The M.Bus (Hons) Business degree is a Masters degree, so on completion of your studies you will have a postgraduate level award.
This, along with intergrated industrial experience gained throughout your studies, will give you the ability to stand out in a competitive jobs market and demonstrate to employers that you have gained advanced skills in business management from both a theoretical and a practical perspective. You will be equipped to apply for graduate jobs in a number of sectors or you may consider setting up your own business.
