Course Content


  • Studying our BA Management Joint Honours degree provides you with a vocationally oriented programme of study if you are seeking a managerial related career. The course develops your management skills alongside an understanding of management theory, principles and practice. There is a strong emphasis on your personal awareness and development as well as the importance of good relationship building.

    In the Joint Honours programme you will be able to select two subjects to study as joint for stage one. You may then continue to study with equal emphasis on two subjects as a joint degree in stages two and three, or switch to a major or minor split. Your degree title is derived from the two subjects. Management can be studied with a range of complementary subjects, for more information about the Joint Honours combinations that can be studied with Management, please see our Joint Honours page.
