This highly flexible course is designed both for students who want to obtain a general knowledge of business studies and students who want to focus on one of the main business disciplines. In the second year you choose to either remain on the BSc Business or opt to specialise with a pathway in accounting, human resource management, information systems or marketing, while also developing core skills in fundamental business management.
We take a genuinely interdisciplinary approach to the subject, offering you an innovative way of learning about topics that cannot be pigeonholed into one particular area.
This programme attracts students from both the public and private sectors, including administrators, clerical workers and managers, as well as the self-employed. Because it is taught entirely by evening study, you are able to combine your academic studies with daytime commitments.
The majority of our students work or care for a family, so you will be learning with people from a wide range of backgrounds and with a wide range of experiences. This creates a stimulating and supportive learning environment. Our tutorial/seminar sessions give you a chance to interact with your peers and develop insights into analysing and interpreting a wide and varied subject matter.
This course is available for full-time study in both central London and Stratford. Students can also study on a part-time basis in both locations; applications for the part-time route should be made directly through the Birkbeck website.
Based in the School of Business, Economics and Informatics, the Department of Management is an internationally recognised centre of excellence in teaching, research and consultancy in the broad field of management.
