Our business management programmes are perfect if you want to develop a broad skill-set that will help you deal with the complexity and diversity of the modern business world. You'll examine how organisations work and discover how to seize the right opportunities at the right time. But you'll also learn how to be a responsible manager by considering legal and ethical issues. You'll study under leading experts who'll bring theory to life with case studies, live projects and guest speakers. Our many professional accreditations reflect our relevance to the real world of business.

By focusing on marketing, you'll also gain specialist knowledge on the latest ideas and trends in this competitive field, giving you a real edge in the jobs market. You can also spend a year of your programme in work, gaining invaluable experience and creating contacts. Or you could spend a year studying abroad with one of our partners across Europe, Asia, North America and Australia to give your degree an international flavour. There are also opportunities to take part in international summer schools including destinations such as Copenhagen Business School and Hong Kong University. We are seeking accreditation for this course from the Chartered Institute of Marketing.
