Our focus is on giving you the skills and knowledge that will benefit you - at whatever stage you are in your career.
We believe the key to your success is merging the academic and professional worlds. Our courses are designed to allow you to explore real-world issues through field trips, case studies, employer-based projects, industry competitions and visiting expert lecturers.
Our undergraduates have the opportunity to undertake a paid work placement, giving them invaluable experience for their CV and putting their learning into context.
Businesses also benefit by bringing in enthusiastic talent before they graduate and from the final year project, which relates to the student’s placement.
Find out more about our placements.
We work hard to ensure our courses reflect the latest industry thinking through close links with professional bodies.
When a course is accredited it can offer you exemptions from that association’s exams and access to a professional network. Some of our courses, like our Business Management BSc (Hons) and our MSc Management, enable you to graduate with two qualifications, your degree and an award from the Chartered Management Institute.
Over twelve professional bodies currently accredit our undergraduate, postgraduate and executive courses.
We recognise that each student has different needs, and will often develop different interests and career aspirations over time.
Our courses have been designed with a range of option modules so you can tailor your course to your strengths, interests and future career.
Masters and executive courses are also offered on a part-time basis to allow you to fit learning around your current commitments.

Our research in innovation management, management and employment, and interdisciplinary management and education informs our courses and aids businesses.
