What you will study?
During this one-year Business Management (Accounting and Finance) top-up course you will examine core aspects of business such as business strategy and communication in a global context, whilst also getting the chance to conduct an investigation into a business problem that allows you to apply your business acumen to a real life scenario.
In addition to studying four core business modules that will broaden your understanding of how businesses operate, you will also study two additional modules specialising in accounting.
Core business modules:
- Applied Management
- Business Strategy
- Business Research: Principles and Practice
- Management Project
- Principles of Accounting
- Principles of Corporate Finance
There are some traditional lectures, but the majority of your learning will rely on interactive seminars, supported by online study materials. We also arrange an induction programme, so you can get to know your tutors and other students before you start studying and hit the ground running on the first day of term. You will use the latest real-life data and case studies to help you learn, making your studies as relevant as possible to what you will experience in the workplace.
You will typically be assessed by essays, reports, presentations, portfolios and examinations.
