About the course

Our business management programmes are perfect if you want to develop a broad skill-set that will help you deal with the complexity and diversity of the modern business world. You'll discover how organisations work and discover how to seize the right opportunities at the right time.

You'll study in state-of-the-art facilities under leading experts who'll bring theory to life with exciting case studies, live projects and guest speakers. Our many professional accreditations reflect our relevance to the real world of business.

By choosing to focus on supply chain management, you also gain specialist knowledge in the web of national and international connections which make up today's complex supply chains. You can also opt to spend a year of your programme in work, gaining invaluable experience and creating contacts. Or spend a year studying abroad with one of our partners across Europe, Asia, North America and Australia to give your degree an international flavour. There are also opportunities to take part in international summer schools including top destinations such as Copenhagen Business School and Hong Kong University.
