This one-year top-up degree builds on your existing qualifications and is available to international and UK/EU students who have a similarly focused business related HND, foundation degree or equivalent.

This is a versatile business degree with the option to complete a general programme of study in business, graduating with a BA (Hons) Business top up degree, or follow a more specialist route in the business areas of Human Resource Management, Marketing, Finance, Information Technology, Entrepreneurship or International Business, leading to an appropriately titled award, for example BA (Hons) Business with Marketing.

Students on a specialist route will choose from a set of units relevant to their route.

Your career prospects after the course

Graduates with broad-based degrees in business and management or specialist business degrees are well positioned to apply for a range of opportunities in the private or public sector.

Previous graduates have gone into employment in a wide range of management positions in industry, management commerce, banking, finance, manufacturing and the public sector while many others have entered graduate training schemes with international companies such as IBM, Credit Suisse and BMW.

Those with good language skills have often chosen to develop their career outside the UK and now live and work in Europe, Asia or South America.

Alternatively you may choose to use your skills to launch your own business or consultancy.

Our business incubator, Innospace, can help you to develop your business ideas and provide practical support to get your company up and running.
