Course Overview

The Management programme covers the fundamental aspects of business engaging with subjects such as accounting, finance, economics, human resource management, law, politics and psychology in order to explore the theory and practice of management in both the private and public sectors.

Alongside your subject knowledge, you will learn practical skills such as report writing, team working and making presentations. With the opportunity to take either a placement year or to spend a year studying abroad you will be able to combine your knowledge and skills with valuable real world experience and demonstrate your ability to put your learning into practice.
