About Accounting and Management at Henley Business School, University of Reading

This programme will teach you about the management of agricultural and other land- based businesses and enterprises that are ancillary to agriculture. It will help you acquire the basic knowledge and skills to become a successful manager of a business, and develop your skills of critical observation and analysis through contact with a variety of interesting real-life businesses.

During the first two years you will gain a general insight into UK, European and world agriculture, and the foundations will be laid for a thorough understanding of the many aspects of production processes in agriculture. In the Final Year, you will follow modules that have been designed to complete your understanding of business management as well as undertaking a special business related project which is presented as a dissertation and accounts for a significant part of your overall degree.

Course Structure:

The degree is based around a number of core modules, with other Optional Modules selected with guidance from your Personal Tutor. Our aim is to build on a number of key management skills and techniques yet still provide you with a flexible programme by offering a choice of Optional Modules through which you can explore your own interests.
