The course is designed to provide students with theoretical and practical perspectives on business and management issues, and to equip them to prosper within today's dynamic business environment. Our approach synthesises carefully balanced theoretical content, integrating classic research with contemporary analyses of international business topics. Active case studies developed in collaboration with our commercial and industry partners directly link theory with practice. We use business simulations at both operational and strategic levels to provide immediate feedback on decisions you have applied, which provide scope for detailed discussion of effective problem solving in a realistic and practical context.
Our philosophy enables us to accept a wide range of applicants, the key criteria being that all candidates must be able to demonstrate an ability to benefit from and contribute to the programme, and they will normally match the entry criteria below:
- A degree from a recognised University or from an equivalent awarding institution at second class honours level or above; or
- a professional qualification recognised as equivalent to the above; or
- an award which the University has agreed to accept as equivalent to the above
English language requirements
Where English is not the candidate's first language, or their degree was not wholly taught and assessed in English, an IELTS score of 6.0 must be achieved, with a minimum of 5.5 in each component.
