Subject summary

Pre-requisites

To study business in your Combined Honours degree, a grade 6 or B in Mathematics and English at GCSE (or equivalent) is normally required if not taken at A or AS Level.

Modules

Find out about our typical modules. Modules are subject to change and could differ on an annual basis.

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.
