Course Overview

You don’t have to have a business background – the course is designed to help you build your management knowledge and skills over time. The School of Business and Management’s focus is less on academic research and more on tutor-led learning.

The learning experience is enriched by the blend of national and international students staying in Halls of Residence at the beautiful High Melton campus or in accommodation in the town centre. Each year we have a limited number of places for top up students who wish to transfer from another College or University into Year 2 or 3 of this programme, please enquire early as places are limited.

An external examiner from York St John University recently commented on the BA (Hons) Business Management course; “a high amount, quality and depth of written feedback is provided by the teaching team on assessed work to the students.”
