Further information

 

You study business organisation, management, leadership and enterprise combined with specialist modules in project management. This programme will be particularly of interest to those seeking to pursue careers in business with a particular emphasis on project leadership, development and management.

The foundation year helps you develop knowledge and skills to make the transition to university study, and in particular, to gain business and management knowledge and develop academic and personal skills to proceed confidently through the remainder of the course. During the foundation year (year 0) you study a range of fundamental business and management subjects, and develop important practical academic skills to prepare you for the remainder of your course.

Year 0 (the foundation year) allows you to develop key discipline knowledge in business and management, and develops your confidence and creative thinking skills, as well as financial competence and numeracy skills. The content of the remaining years of the course is identical to the content of the BA (Hons) Business with Project Management degree.

Year 1 is mainly tutor led and focuses on providing you with the necessary underpinning in terms of broad business knowledge and skills. You explore key business and management concepts and are introduced to your specialist area of project management.

Year 2 takes a more student-led approach with an emphasis on exploring your own interests and deepening your insights as well as having more responsibility for your own learning. During this year you develop a broader international perspective to the study of business. As well as studying four core business modules, including a module where you gain practical work experience via self-identified project, you also study two modules in the area of project management.

The final year explores more advanced topics within business and management and you develop your awareness of your own responsibility as a future leader of business. You consider the strategic and applied aspects of project management and have the opportunity to put your knowledge into action by undertaking a self-managed independent project via the Dissertation module.
