Course Overview

You’ll have opportunities to work with both theoretical and real life business problems, developing the skills you need for a rewarding career in management.

Taking a single honours course doesn’t mean a narrow focus. Management at Keele covers the most fundamental aspects of business expertise and understanding, but also engages with subjects such as finance, economics, law, politics and psychology and explores the theory and practice of organisational behaviour, accounting, marketing, and human resource management. You’ll critically compare different markets, organisation structures and strategies, and their interrelationships with employees. You’ll learn about decision making behaviour across the private and public sectors, and have opportunities to develop your own problem solving skills.
