This programme of business study will enable students to broaden management understanding and capabilities while gaining vital practical experience through a significant industry-based research project.

Graduates will have a sound understanding of the dynamic environment in which managers operate, enabling them to apply that knowledge at organisational and strategic levels in a range of industries and organisations.
The major assessment within this qualification requires students to have access to an organisation in which to base study. This can be where they work or volunteer.
