The Management BSc is taught in Kent Business School (KBS). The programme aims to develop a new kind of business professional for the 21st century, as alive to their social responsibilities to the community as to the needs of their investors, shareholders and employers.
The programme develops your leadership skills in relation to decision-making, problem-solving, teamworking, negotiation and employee performance management. It produces graduates who can pursue operational line management positions in a range of diverse organisations, including public, private and non-profit, as a stepping stone to senior management positions.
You gain the skills and knowledge essential for managing key areas of organisations, including accounting, human resources, quantitative methods, marketing, strategy and operations. You also develop an understanding of the role and interrelationship between strategic management, human resource management and operations management.
Graduates of the Management BSc have an appreciation of the global challenges facing managers from both an operational and a strategic perspective, and are sensitive to the need for business ethics and corporate social responsibility to be an integral part of management policy and practice.
