BA (Hons) Business

Businesses need graduates who are adaptable, with the skills and ability to put their knowledge into practice. To address this need, our BA (Hons) Business degree focuses on personal and professional development, which is essential in modern business where the environment is changing every day.

The BA (Hons) Business degree is designed specifically for the needs of part-time students. You will develop the knowledge and understanding of those subjects normally included in a business degree (e.g. accounting, economics, law, management, marketing and strategy), but will then have the opportunity to continually apply this knowledge back to your workplace. During our four year business course, you will be provided with a realistic view of business and plenty of opportunities to apply what you learn to the real world.
