Management study guide 2023/24

Management at Bristol

As part of the University of Bristol Business School, we want to inspire the next generation of leaders and citizens to address the changing needs of society and the grand challenges of our time. We prepare our students with a solid academic foundation and the life skills to succeed in the real world.

Academic Reputation

Our world leading academics are asking critical questions about the needs of business, government and our wider society. As a result their research is actively influencing policy and practice in areas such as gender equality, sustainability and international business management. It is these academics who will be teaching you and sharing their first-hand experience of real-life management and marketing challenges.

Teaching Excellence

We engage our students in real life business challenges developing the ability to think critically and independently using reflective evidence and analytical methods. Not only will you gain a solid understanding of how organisations and managers operate in a global environment, but we offer the flexibility and choice for you to tailor courses and programmes around your own career goals.

International Outlook

We welcome talented international staff and students from across the world creating a vibrant and diverse study experience. We have partnerships with over 150 universities worldwide including universities in Europe, Hong Kong, Singapore, USA and Australia.

Unit structure

The school offers many classes that are based in a single semester, and can therefore accept unit requests from Study Abroad students who want to join Bristol for just the autumn or spring semester.

Unit levels

The school offers units across all undergraduate levels of study: year 1 (level C/4), year 2 (level I/5), and year 3 (level H/6) units. Postgraduate units are not available.

Unit codes

Unit codes in the School of Management begin with 'EFIM'. This is followed by a number indicating the year (1, 2, 3). For example:

  • EFIM10000 = year 1 unit
  • EFIM20000 = year 2 unit
  • EFIM30000 = year 3 unit.

For more information about each unit, check the University's unit catalogue for 2023/24. Applicants on all study abroad programmes must review the unit details on the catalogue before listing unit choices on their application form. This includes checking the format of assessment for each unit. The unit catalogue for 2023/24 is updated by April 2023.

Your unit choices cannot be guaranteed. Some units may not have capacity to accommodate all of the unit requests we receive. Registration on a unit also depends on whether you meet the pre-requisite conditions through prior study at your home university.

Study Abroad (Subject pathway)

If you have been nominated to Bristol on the Study Abroad (Subject pathway), you must take the majority of your credits in this department.
