In the past it was common to study a generic degree before applying for a graduate traineeship in business. A full time, three year immersion in business concepts and specific industries can only improve on the experience, better preparing you for your career.
The business school offers a range of individual and combined programmes to suit different possible career pathways: BA (Hons) Business Management, BA (Hons) Business Management and Law, BA (Hons) Business Management and Applied Psychology and BA (Hons) Professional Studies (progression route).
The above three-year courses prepare you for a business career in ways no general degree can. You will be developing many of the same skills acquired in any degree study programme, but with the advantage of being introduced to key business concepts.
Professional skills development is an important component of this degree. You will develop your personal and professional skills including team leadership, time management, presentation and communication. Internships will be available to provide work based experience during the course, and a wide range of industry, government and academic resources are used to support teaching and learning.
Many students continue their study with Master of Business Administration (MBA) at the University of Suffolk, or take up professional qualifications for their chosen discipline offered by the relevant chartered institute.
