Business Management in Practice BSc (Hons)
Gain a degree in Business Management in three years. A new approach for a Scottish University, mirroring the three year degree length on offer throughout the rest of the UK.
A degree in Business Management can be a popular choice as it is broad in its content, and covers all key areas of business, rather than focussing specifically on one area. Students will study such things as; developing teams and people; creating operational and marketing plans; planning and managing projects; operations; sustainability; globalisation; social responsibility; strategy; managing change, innovation and creativity; knowledge and risk management; digital business; marketing and markets; data analytics; managing finance, accounting, resources, stakeholders and customer experience; creation of new approaches to business activities; managing quality and performance as well as the human resource function.
Learning the theory behind business and management techniques and tools is also important. But we try and make sure students understand the nature, impact and limitations of these business and management techniques and tools.
We try to prepare students for the reality of work and help them understand how both management and non-management workers can influence a business’ performance. Whilst encouraging students to develop key transferable skills and take responsibility for their own learning and the opportunities presented to them to help their future careers.
