Undergraduate

BA/BA (Hons) Business Management with Marketing

More and more employers require business management graduates who can join their company and hit the ground running. This degree will give you both the theoretical business knowledge and – crucially – the practical experience you need to make your professional mark from day one. You’ll also have the opportunity to study abroad*

Let’s talk business. When you study for a degree in business management at QMU you’ll gain a deep understanding of the nature and core functions of businesses. How do successful companies manage their resources? What’s the best way to make an organisation environmentally sustainable? What marks out a successful entrepreneur? You can study a broad business management degree or (after two years of general study) decide to focus your learning on the enterprise, finance or marketing elements of business management.

About the course

Let’s talk business. When you study for a degree in business management at QMU you’ll gain a deep understanding of the nature and core functions of businesses. How do successful companies manage their resources? What’s the best way to make an organisation environmentally sustainable? What marks out a successful entrepreneur? You can study a broad business management degree or (after two years of general study) decide to focus your learning on the enterprise, finance or marketing elements of business management.

People do business with people. If you have first-class management skills and practical expertise, people are going to want to be in business with you. The best companies will covet you. That’s why our business management options are designed to give you the knowledge and skills that you need to thrive as a business leader and manager in the fast-moving marketplaces of tomorrow.

All students enrol on the broad business management degree for Years One and Two. In these two years you’ll build a strong foundation in core business management areas – marketing, economics, finance, human resource management, entrepreneurship, digital business and law.

In Year Three you’ll choose which of the four named routes you wish to specialise toward. You can study for a broad business management degree or focus on one particular area such as enterprise, finance or marketing. This will allow you to graduate with a specialist award, for example in BA (Hons) Business Management with Enterprise.

Whichever business management path you take, you’ll be equipped with the skills employers are looking for – negotiation, project management, problem solving, critical thinking and team working.

Your practical business expertise will be honed by placements, guest speakers from the business world, business projects and the creation of your own business plan. You’ll also have the opportunity (subject to availability) in Years Two or Three to study for one semester at a university overseas in North America, Canada, Hong Kong, Europe, New Zealand or Australia.

 

Structure

You can opt to study for an honours degree over four years or an ordinary degree over three years. You will complete a range of modules each year as outlined.
