Course Overview

This course will enable you to pursue a career related to business. It will teach you the necessary knowledge and skills to effectively contribute to an organisation from day one.

You will gain knowledge and understanding of how organisations become successful through a range of functions (Strategy, Marketing, Human Resources, Operations and Finance) as well as an understanding of the wider national and international environment in which organisations operate.

The course accomplishes this by applying various models and theories to different business scenarios. Students will manage complex projects and develop intellectual skills to solve problems independently and critically assess issues faced by organisations. Ultimately, we develop the skills that organisations value to improve your employment potential.

There are a wide range of careers available to business graduates and students are encouraged to consider what kinds of roles will interest them. Additionally, further specialised study can enhance your employability as well as topping up your HND by adding an extra year to complete a BA in Busines Management.

Business and Sustainability

We are committed to developing the capabilities of students to be future generators of sustainable value and society at large and to work for an inclusive and sustainable global economy.
