Business Management full-time top-up award BA (Hons)

Course length: 1 year full-time


Why Study Business?

The world of business will always provide a challenging and rewarding career for those who can apply their intelligence, skills and knowledge appropriately. This course provides a way for you to take your existing knowledge about business and management and develop real competence and critical judgement in a business context so that you can become a part of that world.

The course is structured to help you develop concepts and practice in leadership, strategic management and the global economy, and allows you to investigate emerging technologies for competitive advantage. You will work as part of a small cohort taking four taught modules between September and May, and either a supervised academic dissertation or a supervised critical business project which may be carried out off-campus.

How will I be assessed?

The course offers a variety of assessment to suit the experience of the module studied, and will range from presentations and productions to written work, reports, reviews and log books.

What is noteworthy about the course?

One of the main attractions for students on this course is the close personal attention you receive from tutors. As classes and workshops are held in small groups, the tutors can observe your development and help you to improve your skills on an individual basis. The lecturers have experience of both the academic and theoretical sides of business and its practice. In addition, Newman and its partner college have excellent links with local businesses who may provide a context for your study.

What careers can I consider after this degree?

This degree, because of its practical nature, offers you a wide variety of career possibilities. You could become an employee in a major international organisation or an entrepreneur in your own developing business. In addition, you will acquire a range of skills including developing ideas and constructing arguments, and the capacity to present them in appropriate ways.
