This course develops creativity, enterprise, problem solving and decision making abilities through a range of skills and knowledge relevant to modern business. It is designed to meet employers' needs and to create graduates who have a sound grasp of business and good transferable skills. The course allows students to pursue specialist interests to some extent and relate these specialisms to professional requirements.
The course enables students to appreciate the importance of the social, political, ethical, technological environmental and global contexts in which business operates. It also provides students with a range of opportunities to develop the attitudes, skills and abilities necessary to work in an international business environment and to develop an awareness and appreciation of different cultural values.
Students' work is assessed through a mixture of written assignments, case study reports, presentations and examinations.
At UCS Ipswich there are six management degrees offered. Students may choose from the Major Business Management route or may select named pathways in Entrepreneurship, Finance, Human Resource Management, Law or Marketing.
In their first year all students study core modules where they will learn about the business and legal environment, management and financial matters and explore their own business ideas. They are encouraged to gain increased independence and to take responsibility for their own learning.
For those students with a Summer Internship we offer the opportunity to use their work based learning to enhance their understanding and gain credits at Level 5 in the Management in Practice module.
First year modules include:
