Business Administration

This course annually attracts a range of graduate calibre applicants from a variety of commercial, industrial and public sector organisations, often from 15 different countries. You will experience a challenging and intensive course in management, with an international perspective, to enhance your personal and career development. To facilitate this you will use, share and reflect upon your experiences alongside other students in your learning team. You will be allocated to your multicultural 'learning team' during induction. A few learning teams are combined to form tutorial groups, with each having their own personal tutor. Course features include: integrating the main functional areas through the application of global strategic management; 1 week residential (off-campus study trip) with costs covered by course fees; option to register to apply for a 48 week paid industrial placement, thus enhancing employability. Placements cannot be guaranteed as it is a highly competitive process and employers have the final say.

Entry requirements
