Course Overview

For the Business theme:

The distinctive themed approach to the Business element of the Foundation degree is designed to prepare students for the wide variety of activities, functions, professional skills and the powerful critical awareness that careers in today’s business demand. Students are offered the opportunity to develop a broad base of business knowledge, a range of essential personal competencies and a comprehensive understanding of both the individual within an organisation and the organisation within its environment that will help to equip them for employment in large and small organisations, or setting up their own business.
