Business & Management

Business is taught at many institutions in this country and overseas. However, Business at Newman is unique in that it considers issues of values and ethics alongside traditional topics in accounting, finance and leadership. We strongly believe that the most effective business practitioners are those that demonstrate not only their proficiency in the subject but understand the impact of business on the lives and welfare of others, in order to counter the perception of business as sometimes impersonal and uncaring.  This ethos is evident across many of the modules taught on our business courses and has been positively received by the organisations our graduates are employed in.

Business continues to be one of the most popular subjects at undergraduate level and Business graduates are sought after by employers in a range of professions.

Newman University's courses in management and business at foundation degree,undergraduate level and our postgraduate MBA will give you an understanding of the latest management techniques and theories, focusing on the factors that influence organisational success and how organisations in both public and private sectors can influence these factors through their own policies and behaviour. The areas of business covered within the courses will ensure that you develop the relevant skills in demand by future employers, whilst helping you to shape your own views on how the world of business should look in the future.
