At the same time, they will come to understand a wide range of business roles.

This programme is also suitable for individuals who wish to develop a business management specialization after a general business education, to become business teachers, or start their own businesses.
The programme integrates theoretical study and application to real world cases, in each module's teaching strategy but also in direct interaction with the University's external partnerships, including employers' organisations, professional associations, international partners and spin off entrepreneurial activities.
In particular our business management graduates have analytical, research, information technology, interpersonal, cross-cultural communication and empathetic skills.
The skills of managing ICT, communication with peers and external organisations, numeracy, problem-solving, interacting in teams, ethical reasoning, critical appraisal, self-management and leadership have been particularly applauded.
