About BSc Management

This exciting course will help you to achieve your potential by providing a supportive and stimulating environment in which to study, with access to outstanding facilities, academic guidance and pastoral support. We will help you develop the analytical, critical and creative skills needed to succeed in today's dynamic professional world.

The course focuses on developing your understanding of management as both a social science and a practice, as well as providing you with more general intellectual, personal and technical skills and the ability to apply and develop them in your future career.

If you wish to extend your degree to four years, you may apply to BSc Management then during your studies ask to be considered for BSc Management with Study Abroad. The Study Abroad programme gives you the opportunity to study modules in management at a partner institution overseas, taught in English.

Course structure

First year

Your first year will introduce basic concepts and tools - both qualitative and quantitative - for the study of management, as well as exploring organisation theory.  You will also learn relevant aspects of economics and accounting and choose an optional unit which may be selected from anywhere in the university (for example Sustainable Development, Texts in Modern Political Philosophy)

Second year

In your second year you will study a core unit in Research Methods, equipping you to select and implement appropriate methods for investigating issues in management - for example, statistical analysis of survey data, or qualitative study involving interviews and observation in organisations. This will prepare you to embark on your final-year dissertation.

You will also study other units in Management (for example, in the 2015/16 academic year we offered units including International Business Management, Marketing, Project Management and Public Management), as well as being able to choose topics in accounting, in economics and in finance.

Third year

A focus of your final year will be your dissertation, which will count for 20 per cent of your overall degree result. You will design and conduct a significant piece of individual research into an area of interest to you, collecting and analysing information according to your preferred methodology, and report your findings as a dissertation of 8,000-10,000 words.

You will also study 80 credit points of subjects from the discipline of management and (depending on your selected topics in the first and second years) accounting, economics and finance. We vary the range of options from time to time according to current developments in the discipline of management. For example, in the 2015/16 academic year we offered units including:

  • Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainability
  • International Human Resource Management
  • Operations Management
