To inspire future business managers and entrepreneurs, we offer a wide selection of programmes within business, management and human resource management. Our business and management programmes are taught by internationally renowned experts with extensive industry experience.

You can gain work experience and paid placements with regional, national and international businesses.

Many students are interested in starting their own business. You’ll be able to take advantage of our on campus Propeller team, supporting you to become the latest entrepreneur.

We also offer a great selection of postgraduate programmes for those looking to top-up from their undergraduate degree, as well as those who are working within industry and are looking to top-up their skills and knowledge.
