Why choose this course?
Our Business Administration course is for HND graduates ready to step up to degree level study. Making the transition from college to university can be daunting and that is why we have designed this course with the needs of HND students in mind. In year 3 – your first year at university – you will be supported through workshops and seminars. To help you balance work-life commitments, we offer a condensed study week in year 3.
What you study
You will gain a detailed knowledge of the critical challenges and current thinking in business and, in particular, the challenges of decision-making and of managing people effectively in large and complex organisations. You will develop your skills in managing your own performance and that of others. You will study, among other subjects, human resource management, strategy and management, marketing and finance. At Honours level, you will work with a supervisor on a project related to an area of your particular interest, and will develop your skills of analysis and project management at a high level. You will be able to meet your tutors and discuss your progress through your own personalised study plan.
How you learn
In addition to attending lectures and seminars on key areas of business theory and practice, you will have opportunities to develop your problem solving and other professional skills in small group work, both in tutorials and in online discussion groups.
How you are assessed
You will complete coursework tasks and examinations which reflect the types of tasks and skills that will be expected of you in the workplace: making a case, in writing and in formal presentations; analysing information and problems, to develop effective solutions; working with others on business tasks and projects; and conducting independent research on subjects allocated to you, and those of your own choice.
