We have recently obtained Chartered Management (CMI) accreditation for BA (Hons) Business Management and Finance which provides you with assurance that our degrees meet current employer requirements of aspiring managers. In addition to your degree, you will be eligible to achieve the Level 5 Diploma or Certificate in Management on graduation at no extra cost or work, if you satisfactorily complete mapped modules. Research shows that CMI accreditation improves your employability within a graduate level job and if you are interested in a management career, this qualification can improve your potential of securing a first level management position. You can apply for ‘Chartered Manager’ status on graduation to improve your management career potential.
The Accounting and Finance programme is accredited by the ACCA, the global professional accounting body offering the Chartered Certified Accountant qualification. If you decide to specialise more on the financial elements of your degree, there are eight possible exemptions available out of the fourteen papers on the ACCA qualification. This means you don’t have to start at the beginning of becoming ACCA registered and have already passed some of the modules required to pursue a financial career.
Teaching and Assessment
How you will learn
Throughout your degree you will learn business and management disciplines from industry experienced lecturers and business guest speakers. The majority of the course is taught by applying business and management theory to practical scenarios where you can develop your problem solving, idea generation and entrepreneurial mindsets. You will also be able to work with real clients and business on current commercial and business opportunities, challenges and projects. Some of these projects will provide the basis for assessment and enable you to apply your learning to authentic commercial situations and increase your work resilience.
To ensure we provide a ‘professional’ environment this course is taught in small, interactive workshops of up to 30 students. You will discuss a specific business topic in these workshops and have opportunities to work on tasks, have group discussions and feedback your views in a supportive and stretching environment.
As a result of our teaching approach, you will develop confidence and interest in the business environment as well as a wide range of soft skills such as teamwork, communication, planning, organising and leadership.
Our assessments aim to reflect work-based scenarios. As a result there are minimal exams, with a larger focus on action and problem-based assessments. Most assessments are based on presentations, portfolio work or reports. Where there are exams, the majority are ‘timed assessments’ and ‘open-book’.
What you will study
You will study a selection of core and optional modules in each year. Each module is worth a number of credits and is delivered differently depending on its content and focus of study.
Most of our business degrees share core modules during the first year. This means that you may choose to move from a joint honours degree to a single honours option at the end of year one if you find another subject you are particularly interested in.
Your first year focuses on understanding the fundamentals of business management, how decisions are made and affect other business areas. During this year you will develop your employability, enterprise awareness and build a foundation of business knowledge for the rest of your degree through key subjects such as accounts, taxation, auditing and corporate finance, or leadership, project management and operations management.
During year two you will further develop your knowledge in financial reporting and management in core modules and start to build your own specialism through optional modules. You will also start learning research skills that prepare you for your research dissertation in the final year. During this year you will consider whether to go on a one-year placement or study exchange at the end of year two; or continue straight to year three.
In your final year your research dissertation will be your main focus. In this module you will research articles about a particular topic and issue, carry out primary research to investigate further, analyse your data, and come up with some relevant recommendations and conclusions. You will also have the opportunity to specialise further and select modules that most interest you and prepare for your career.
If you feel that you would like to gain more work experience specific to your career pathway, or, you went on the one-year placement and would like to gain further work experience, you could select the short work placement option in the final semester and carry out your research dissertation whilst on placement for the organisation.
This list is indicative and subject to change.
