BA (Hons) Business Management with Foundation Year (4 years)

Overview

The BA (Hons) Business Management with Foundation Year programme is delivered in partnership with Buckinghamshire New University. The course is offered to those who do not meet the minimum requirements for our three-year programme, or those who do not feel fully prepared for first-year entry.

This is a four-year programme that includes an initial Foundation Year. The Foundation Year will help you to hone your academic study skills and develop your abilities while also recognising your own strengths and areas for improvement in preparation for a bachelor's degree.

Today's management of companies and organisations necessitates serious leadership abilities. Companies are still on the lookout for experienced and trained executives to ensure future success. Employers are looking for graduates who are not only academically trained, but also work-ready with management and leadership skills. This course will give you the tools you need to be a positive and competent manager.

Shift is the only constant for the new generation of executives. This curriculum will not only provide you with experience and understanding of current best practises in strategic international management, but it will also assist you in developing your personal skills in order to prepare you for your first management positions or for starting your own company.
