Business Administration

The course is designed to provide students with a comprehensive background in all aspects of business and management, while also providing an opportunity to focus in on a specialist area of management for those who so wish. All students study 12 compulsory modules which include the core areas of strategic management, organisational behaviour, finance, marketing, human resource management and operations management. Students then select 3 elective modules and also prepare a major business project and those who choose to do so within a specialist field are deemed to have followed 1 of 5 pathways: Accounting and finance; human resource management; international management; marketing and strategy; operations management and logistics. Alternatively, students may follow a general route and select electives across these disciplines.
