Distance Learning

Our Business Management by e-learning top-up course is ideal if you’ve successfully completed a relevant and applicable business course which you’re looking to build on to gain an honours degree.

This 16-month part-time top-up programme is delivered entirely online. There’s a distinct emphasis on practical learning, allowing you to develop core business skills in areas such as problem-solving, decision-making, team-working and communications.

It’s ideal if you’ve already completed a Foundation Degree or HND (or an equivalent international programme) in a business-related discipline. This course builds on your previous knowledge of business and management, but further develops your understanding of contemporary business strategy.

(This course is being reapproved under the University’s normal cycle of review. As such, the course structure and content may be changed to enable us to deliver a better quality of educational experience to students.)
