Business, Management & Marketing courses

Our business, management and marketing degrees are all about expanding your professional and personal horizons – both during your studies and in your future career.

We do this by providing a mix of great teaching and professional development opportunities – with a placement year included in all our full-time taught undergraduate courses. 

And, thanks to recognition and accreditations from a variety of different industry bodies, when you study with us you will have the chance to attain sought-after, employability-boosting professional qualifications. Meanwhile, our Business School’s accreditation by AACSB International – the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools – places BU among the world’s top universities when it comes to business education.

For Business Studies courses, you’ll apply to Business Studies (N100). Then in your second year, you can choose to carry on with the broad Business Studies route or choose one of the specialist pathways listed above.

Accreditations to kick-start your career

Each of our courses in this area is accredited by one or more industry body. The benefits of these range from membership of those bodies, to the opportunity to gain professional qualifications to help you get ahead.

Placements that make a real difference

Professional work placements are key to what we do at BU. Many graduates go on to work for their placement employers – like Gemma, who will be working at IBM after she graduates.
