Course overview

*Subject to validation

The business world is complex, fast-moving and exciting, and demands high-calibre employees with sound management, marketing and financial skills. The ability to manage change, risk and people, and to develop sustainable business strategies is crucial. If you wish to develop your own enterprise then creative and entrepreneurial skills are needed too.

In addition to gaining a solid business foundation, you will gain these skills through a unique mix of elective routes covering management studies, international business, food chains, farm business and equine management, rural development, tourism and events, and entrepreneurship. An independent research project focusing on a business subject or organisation of personal interest will showcas the skills you have acquired.

Right from the start of the programme you will benefit from a one-to-one coaching session with a career coach. You will also gain real-world experience from visits to a range of inspiring local, regional and international companies and events, as well as hearing from guest speakers and alumni working in industry.

This is a dual qualification. Upon successful completion of the degree you will be awarded membership and a Level 7 Diploma in Strategic Management and Leadership from the Chartered Management Institute, further enhancing your CV.
