Our integrated business foundation year is designed to provide you with the core business, economics and entrepreneurial knowledge and skills to enable you to progress on to the BA (Hons) Global Management with Pathways. During the year you will develop mathematical and analytical skills, conduct research and write in both academic and business English.

You will learn to analyse problems and propose a range of solutions you have personally developed. You will also be able to apply the knowledge and skills you have learned as part of a business development project.

The BA (Hons) Global Management with Pathways is carefully structured to offer you an integrated and holistic approach to management studies. It builds your skills across four complementary areas of management practice, after which you follow a specialist pathway.

The programme not only taps into current trends, but also looks to the future, allowing you to study subjects that are highly relevant in today’s competitive workplace and prepare to manage changing future trends.

You will learn the key skills, such as critical thinking and negotiation that are vital to current and future business leaders. You will learn to manage uncertainty and assess risk and become a confident decision-maker. We encourage you to challenge established pre-conceptions and critically question the world around you, developing both resilience and adaptability.
