A Business and Management degree focuses on the planning, running and operations of an organisation. Students will look at each part of a business, including areas such as finance, marketing, human resources and administration, and many Business and Management programmes offer placements with globally recognised companies, enabling you to experience firsthand what the profession involves.
Most Business and Management courses have a shared programme of study in the first year, before students choose their own path in the second year of study. Once the degree is completed, key skills in market knowledge, finance, managing of people, strategy and data will help you move forward with your career.
Business courses are offered at over 120 universities in the UK and are the largest recruiter of undergraduates in the UK, with more than 50,000 students starting courses in the last academic year.
Business and Management is a broad degree which encompasses many areas, and there are a wide variety of career paths a graduate can pursue upon completion of their studies. Students will be highly employable and can consider roles in advertising, banking, consultancy, general management, human resource management and marketing.
