About Business Management, BA (Hons) - at University of Wales Trinity Saint David

Course Overview

You will develop a broad repertoire of business skills, rather than focusing on one specialism. Students undertake a range of tasks applied to organisations and enjoy developing sophisticated solutions to business problems.

Given the broad range of skills learned, graduates have many career opportunities in a diverse range of business roles in a wide range of sectors, including government and not-for-profit sectors. This programme is also suitable for those who wish to develop a business management specialism after a general business education, to become business teachers or to start their own businesses.

All subjects studied on the programme are relevant to the world of work, across specialist disciplines and sectors. The skills developed to achieve academic success are also those required by employers and for study at higher levels. The flexibility of the programme allows students opportunities to specialise or to maintain their general studies to keep their options open depending on the trends in the job market.

Key Features

The programme integrates theoretical study and application to real world cases, in each module's teaching strategy but also in direct interaction with the University's external partnerships, including employers' organisations, professional associations, international partners and spin off entrepreneurial activities.

In particular our business management graduates have analytical, research, information technology, interpersonal, cross-cultural communication and empathetic skills.

The skills of managing ICT, communication with peers and external organisations, numeracy, problem-solving, interacting in teams, ethical reasoning, critical appraisal, self-management and leadership have been particularly applauded. Students' progress through the programme ensures that they become increasingly self-confident and capable of managing their own learning. Graduates will have developed self-confidence and the ability to work in diverse environments and communicate at a wide variety of levels.

Modules

Year 1 provides an introduction to the key business disciplines and development of vital skills. Students will work with an external organisation to see theory in action and acquire valuable skills.

Year 2 covers finance, human resources and marketing. It allows a choice of options in current business management developing areas. It includes an entrepreneurship exercise and study data management and business intelligence. An internship opportunity exists which will be assessed for credits.

Year 3 develops the themes of strategy, leadership and management, with the opportunity to choose options. Students will also study either a dissertation in a contemporary business management topic or an organisational consultancy project in which they will simulate the management consultant's role developing advice for an organisation.

Professional Accreditations

Our BABM is attractive to those interested in innovative teaching and assessment approaches. It is also relevant to those who wish to join the professions. It is mapped against professional qualifications of management associations to ensure exemptions and relevant employability skill development. Those applicants interested in application of business and management ideas have a number of opportunities on the programme for community engagement and placement or internships.
