With significant business opportunities created by a tripling of international trade and foreign investment (KPMG 2012), there has never been a better time to be a Business Manager. Our degree aims to develop resourceful and responsive managers who are able to rise effectively to the challenges of today’s business world.
Studying a course full-time traditionally takes three years to complete, unless your course has the option of a sandwich year placement, in which case you could gain a year’s professional work experience in a company or organisation.
