Why business studies?
This course introduces you to the dynamic business environment and the importance of entrepreneurial activity in creating business opportunities and sustaining business growth. You’ll develop a wide range of essential skills required for higher education and employment.
You’ll have the opportunity to apply for a place in our Career Ready programme which includes talks by guru lecturers, visits, work experience and links with mentors in the world of work.
A degree in this subject is a traditional route to a range of careers in business management, international business and other business related courses at Russell Group universities. Many business students also take advantage of school leaver schemes and apprenticeships.
Course content
The focus of this course is to nurture an enthusiasm for studying business using contemporary contexts, allowing learners to develop an appreciation of the strategic, complex and inter-related nature of business issues from a local to a global perspective.
Through three main components – business opportunities and functions, business analysis and strategy, and business in a changing world – you’ll gain an understanding of the important role played by small businesses in the economy and the opportunities that exist for entrepreneurs, as well as the importance of established business and not-for-profit organisations in providing goods and services.
