Level 6

UCAS Code: B001
Institution Code: W46

As a student on the Business and Management programme, you will be involved in identifying and applying the main business processes and personal skills essential in effective management. You will apply your knowledge and skills in a range of specific situations such as marketing management, the legal environment, developing innovative practice to support business performance, the management of organisational change, professional futures and sustainability. The overall aim of the programmes is to provide an inspiring, challenging course of study that will equip you with the knowledge and skills necessary to enable you to contribute effectively to the leadership and management of organisations within a rapidly changing business environment.

Developing professional skills is key to graduate employability and teamwork, communication, planning, problem solving, time management, leadership, negotiation, compromise and conflict resolution are key transferable skills.  You will be given opportunities to listen to, value and challenge your peers; you will also be able to explain your own ideas.  You will have opportunities to develop your group work skills at all levels.

Developing professional practice is an integral part of your course.  Developing your professional practice enables you to put theory in to practice by participating in relevant tasks within a real business and management context.  These activities will expose you to the realities of the workplace and enhance your graduate employability skills by further developing your knowledge, skills and competencies required to perform effectively in a work environment.  A significant benefit of work-related learning experiences is that they improve your academic performance as you will see, at first hand, how organisations operate.  You will be able to expand your professional networking throughout the course.

The overall aim of the BA (Hons) Professional Studies programme is to equip you with the knowledge, skills and experience that will enable them to be 'professionally ready' on graduation. The programme provides broad coverage of the key functions of management and enables you to appreciate the importance of the social, political, ethical, technological, environmental and global contexts in which organisations operate. The programme also provides opportunities for you to develop creativity, communication, problem solving, time management and decision-making abilities through a range of skills and knowledge relevant to modern business and professional contexts. This is partly facilitated through the opportunities provided to investigate current issues within the business and professional environments.

· Provide articulated progression from study at appropriate Honours level and to facilitate progression to further HE study at post-graduate level;

· Place emphasis on autonomy and independent, self-directed learning appropriate to honours level and beyond

· Provide opportunities for the application of knowledge, skills and understanding within appropriate Honours level assessment activities (e.g. dissertations, projects, critiques etc);

· Develop the students' presentational and communication skills, whether oral, written or through electronic media to professional standards

· Provide a factual or knowledge base with the emphasis on more complex/unpredictable aspects of the chosen subject;

· Equip students to discuss aspects of their subject/profession with confidence and to enable them to appreciate where multiple solutions or ambiguity exist;

· Provide appropriate blended learning via formal lectures, groupwork, one-to-one tutorial support, peer support and sustained self-directed learning
