Business Studies and Entrepreneurship
The University of Northampton business degrees will equip you with all the skills you need to achieve your career prospects and stand out to potential employers. Whether you are joining us as an undergraduate or looking to advance your knowledge with our postgraduate programmes, our wide range of business degrees are sure to appeal to you.
Compulsory modules will provide graduates with a good foundation of the subject. In the remaining years, some of your modules will be chosen by you, allowing you to select modules according to your own interests.
Our three-year single honours programmes at undergraduate level are encouraged to undertake a year-long placement in between Stages Two and Three of study. If you meet the entry criteria and choose to take up a placement year, you will find it an invaluable experience that helps you to apply your learning in your final year and prepares you for your future career. We offer a lot of support in helping you to find a placement, which can be in the UK or overseas.
Students partaking in our BA Business and Entrepreneurship degrees, as well as MA and MSc programmes, are asked to meet our standard entry requirements for the individual courses. For our international students, we ask that the English Language requirements of IELTS 6.0 (or equivalent) with a minimum of 5.5 in all bands for study are met at undergraduate level.
In regards to our procedure, we also ask that applicants read further about requirements, as they may vary between each course. Where you have already begun the application process, a standard procedure of a written essay or interview will be required by students.
Your journey doesn’t end once you have completed your Business undergraduate or Masters programme at the University of Northampton. To help you face the challenges of finding the right employment in your preferred sector after university, we have introduced the University of Northampton Employment Promise.
After successfully completing your Business studies, you can secure the opportunity to participate in a three-six month paid internship or additional support for your postgraduate study.
