This degree is a natural choice for applicants who want a wide-ranging qualification that gives them a good-grounding in business and management fundamentals. We aim to give students a solid understanding of the nature of entrepreneurial opportunity, so that they can become self-starters when it comes to developing businesses. But equally, we aim to equip them with the skills to be able to bring innovation, creativity and strategic thinking to organisations that they may choose to work for. The range of careers open to our business and management graduates is hence as wide as their own imaginations can take them.
In practice there are a wide range of career opportunities for BA (Hons) Business Management graduates, including both public and private sector employment opportunities in specific vocational areas such as marketing, IT, HRM planning, and accountancy and managerial trainee posts. Graduates can progress into becoming human resource managers, operations managers, brand managers and business development managers among many other career pathways.
