This conversion course is delivered by the AACSB-accredited Business School, an accreditation attained by fewer than 5% of business schools worldwide. It recognises our focus on excellence in all areas.

Be it people, strategy, networks or markets, they all require expert management. But the difference between strong and poor management can mean the difference between success and failure for an organisation.

This course will empower you with the business skills and acumen to help you become a dynamic leader prepared for the challenges of global business.

Business is a broad and fascinating subject with many different areas to specialise in. As well as developing your management and leadership skills, you will understand the global context in which organisations operate, explore the nature of global markets and the strategic management and marketing-related aspects of business-to-business and business-to-consumer relationships.

The combination of truly contemporary, specialist units, and our internationally rich culture provides a global perspective on management in practice across the globe. In addition the opportunity to undertake a 30-week work placement in the sector will help prepare for your career.
