Why study Business Management (with a Foundation Year)?
The world needs good managers. It needs them at every level, whether managing day-to-day business operations or in the headquarters of businesses, government or charities. If you want to climb the corporate ladder of an international organisation developing managerial concepts, skills and disciplines will be critical to that ambition.
This Business Management course has been designed by an experienced team of academics, many of whom have experience of working as managers in a variety of industry sectors. The degree takes into account what employers and industry experts expect from new management recruits.
This degree gives you the knowledge and skills needed to be a successful manager, in private, public or charitable sectors throughout the world. It builds on contemporary management skills and approaches, giving you everything needed to secure and succeed in your first management job.
Completion of the degree leads to dual accreditation: Bachelor's Honours degree and Level 5 Certificate in Management and Leadership awarded by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI).
Why St Mary's?
St Mary’s University is a small and beautiful campus university in West London, with a friendly and professional atmosphere.
Our Business Management programme combines coverage of the key business areas from finance and marketing, through to strategy and human resources, with the opportunity to study more specialist subjects, such as business law, management consultancy and digital business.
You can undertake a work placement as part of your degree. This will allow you to experience the benefits of combining academic theory with the practicality of the working environment. You will organise your placement with the help of the Workplace Learning Team and can choose to do it in a location that suits you.
