This subject's main focus is on the management of organisations. It examines the theories and methods behind management and explores the relationships between people, organisations and their environment using an international perspective. You will study organisational policies, strategic planning, employment relations, finance, marketing, business analysis and decision making, and technology.

You have the opportunity to take a broad approach or to focus on more specialist areas. Subject pathways allow you to combine business management with a wide range of specialisms, including accounting, finance, marketing, human resource management, decision sciences, enterprise and innovation, and strategic economics. You can study international business with or without a language. The structure of our programmes means that during the early years of study there is often the flexibility to change from one subject pathway to another.
