About the course

Practise meaningful management by building on the skills acquired in your foundation degree or HND programme. You will blend management theory with practical application to the workplace. In particular, you will focus on strategic issues of business, developing strong analytical skills and market knowledge in the process.

Our modules cover core senior management level subjects such as strategic leadership and enterprise, marketing management and strategy and contemporary human resource management. The research project/dissertation will allow you to identify and research a specific area of interest within the leadership and management disciplines.

By covering multiple strands of management, you will be able to select the concepts that strike a chord with you, using them to influence your own personal management style. Progression can lead to further study or employment.

We will continue to follow government guidelines to ensure the safety of all our students and staff and have put in place additional safety measures, including the way we deliver your course.

For Semester 1, we plan to deliver your course through a mixture of online and face to face tuition and we will review this as Government guidelines change in response to COVID-19 developments. 

Under the present guidelines, we plan to deliver your course 50% online and 50% face to face. We will timetable, where possible, so that you come into the UC for a whole day and you will be in a bubble with your fellow students on your course.

Face to face contact will be delivered following guidelines on social distancing and increased health and safety measures.  You will be made fully aware of the current measures in place and be expected to follow the guidance issued.
