The range of modules offered may change each academic year.

 The Integrated Business Stream offers five separate streams in various business and management disciplines:

- Accounting and Finance (ACC): These modules will provide the necessary background to understanding corporate accounts.  This will assist in such management functions as decision-making and resource allocation.

- Economics (ECO/ACE): Economics is the study of the factors that influence income, wealth and well-being.  Having gained an understanding of the basics, students can go onto studying economics in both a business and global context.

- Marketing (MKT/ACE): After an introductory module, this stream studies marketing from a variety of perspectives and within various business sectors, as well as considering marketing within the overall business environment. 

- Management (BUS): Management is concerned with how businesses operate, considering not only the use of resources but other topics such as human resource management and decision-making.  This stream also provides an opportunity to learn about small business start-up and innovation.

- International Business Management (BUS): This stream takes a business environmental view of globalisation and provides an opportunity to understand the effects of global trade on people and organisations.

 

The modules are mapped to the following discipline streams:
