Why study this course?
Our four-year Business Management (including foundation year) BA (Hons) degree has a built-in foundation year (Year 0) that provides you with an alternative route into higher education if you don’t have traditional qualifications or can’t meet the entry requirements for an undergraduate degree in business.
During your foundation year you will engage with business challenges in a stimulating environment, while boosting your confidence and acquiring crucial academic skills. This acts as excellent preparation for your subsequent three years of study, which will allow you to specialise in more specific and advanced areas of business.
This course received a 90% overall student satisfaction score in the National Student Survey 2021, making us third in the UK for business and management.
More about this course
Our innovative Business Management (including foundation year) BA (Hons) degree has been devised with valuable industry input, giving you an edge when it comes to seeking that all-important job when you graduate.
At London Met, we’ll help you acquire key business skills and knowledge in the classroom but we’ll provide you with a wide range of opportunities outside of the classroom too. The University is home to Accelerator, which provides advice, support, networks, knowledge and resources that can help you turn a business idea into reality. Based in Shoreditch, Accelerator is a unique resource that has helped many students and graduates establish their own businesses.
You will share your foundation year with students on other business-related foundation year courses. This allows you to share ideas and insights with your classmates before going on to specialise in your subsequent years of study. Should you decide during your foundation year that you’d like to specialise in a different area of business, there is also some flexibility to allow you to do this.
Following your foundation year, you’ll study the same course content and get the same choice of modules as those who study our Business Management BA (Hons) course. Here you’ll have the opportunity to explore decision-making, leadership, organisation design and management, with a range of optional modules to choose from. Alternatively, you can choose to transfer to our Music Business BA (Hons) course if you’d prefer.
You’ll graduate with a full undergraduate degree with the same title and award as those who studied the traditional three-year course, but you’ll also gain a Level 5 Chartered Management Institute (CMI) diploma. As a member of the CMI you can access their facilities, attend events and access over 200,000 live management jobs and its mentoring scheme.
