Business management foundation year pathway

This pathway is for for students wishing to study any of the following undergraduate programmes:


Along with the four core modules, the business management pathway also includes the following modules:

London: A Global City

This module explores the ways in which London is a globalised city, with particular reference to the financial, legal and tourism sectors. The module outlines the effects of global socio-economic developments in London, such as financial deregulation, the changing relationship between the UK and Europe, and the implications of competition with other global cities. By doing so, the module exposes students to the theoretical and practical implications of globalisation.

These concepts are explored through the gathering, presentation and analysis of secondary data sets, enabling students to gain a range of transferable data handling skills applicable to further studies in a range of disciplines including business and management, law, tourism and geography.

Fundamentals of Business Management

This module explores management as an essential component of all business organisations. Some businesses may have predominantly commercial objectives, while others may have complex social or public objectives. The common themes will be explored across a variety of types of organisations, while emphasising the specific challenges found in different organisational contexts.

These include but not limited to topics such as contemporary business practices, role of finance in society, history of management development and the changing nature of Human Resource Management.
