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.
You can opt to either undertake the BA Single Honours Business Management course or choose to study BA Single Honours Business Management with one of the following specialisms: Business Finance, Entrepreneurship, Human Resources and Marketing.
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.
Why Study Business Management with us?
Effective business managers are crucial to interpreting the changing business environment and shape decision making. This ensures future growth amidst the challenge of competing stakeholder demands and resource constraints.
As a Chester Business Management graduate, you will be competent in exercising judgement and skill in decision making across a range of contemporary contexts. With a firm understanding of diverse management practices and skills, you will be able to operate in regional, national and international markets across all strategic areas, and have a firm understanding of the role of business and management in society.
Here at Chester Business School, we have a wealth of strategic knowledge in the areas of Human Resource Management, Business Finance, Entrepreneurship and Marketing, that we aim to align to a number of professional bodies. If you wish to, you will be able to select modules that enable you to specialise in one of these areas, thereby strengthening you as a standout candidate in the job market. Your degree award title will reflect this.
If you are specialising, it is not until Years 2 and 3 that you will need to choose your route; if you are not specialising, you can mix and match from a wide selection of modules that best fit your interests and future career in Business Management.
We also offer integrated work experience as part of your degree, and a four-year option for study with a year out in industry – all helping to ensure that you are distinctive in the marketplace.
