How you'll learn

Our BA (Hons) Business Management programme draws on input from the outside world to bring this subject to life. We do this by using external speakers, encouraging you to test out your ideas in practice, and helping you apply everything you learn to a broad range of settings and contexts.

Our approach is to get you ‘learning by doing’ from the start, using:

  • guided online activities

  • online lectures and seminars

  • online critiques

  • tutorials

  • critical self-reflection

  • independent study

Modules typically run for 10 weeks each, except for your Business Project, which takes 20 weeks.

How much time will it take?

You’ll need to dedicate 25 hours per week to your studies during the 10 weeks that form each 20-credit module.

Get in touch with us for more information on the course timeline, and details about your study time commitment.

How we assess you

We’ll assess you on how you research, create, and document your work throughout the programme. We use a combination of formative and summative assessments to do that.

We’re committed to inclusivity and will reflect that in our assessment strategies so that no one is at a disadvantage.

Formative assessments include tutor feedback on your presentations and other projects. This type of assessment will help you learn and develop, but it doesn’t contribute towards your final mark.

Summative assessments usually take place through assessed practical and written coursework, such as projects, presentations, essays, case studies, plans, and strategies. You’ll get feedback from your tutor as part of these assessments.
