About Business Management (top up) at Sheffield Hallam University
This course is ideal for anyone wishing to advance their knowledge, skills, aptitude and career prospects in business. It enables you to convert your business-related HND or degree credits into an honours degree in business management.
The structure of the course is very flexible. You can tailor your studies to the career you are intending to follow and have more control over your academic and career direction.
You choose modules according to your strengths and interests. The range of modules covers many business disciplines including * marketing * human resource management * international business * finance * foreign languages.
We emphasise developing practical skills and business understanding alongside academic knowledge. We teach through projects and case studies related to real life organisations and scenarios. This improves your employability after you graduate.
As well as the personal, analytical and communication skills that many university courses develop, you gain skills in * problem solving * decision making * negotiation * research * project management. These skills are needed in all organisations.
You can also complete a one year optional work placement in the UK or abroad during your second year. The placement gives you an insight into real organisations and allows you to put theory into practice. The experience will greatly benefit your final year studies and further enhance your employability after graduation.
Many of our graduates go on to management training schemes in large companies or junior management positions in smaller organisations.
