Course content

Your first year modules will cover the main areas of business. You’ll consider how organisations make use of available resources, people, finance and materials, as well as how businesses respond to market requirements.

In your second and third year you will develop the knowledge you gained in your first year and learn how to apply problem solving and decision making to a range of business situations. Change management is a key part of all business today and we teach you about dealing with conflict and changing organisational cultures, to gain maximum effectiveness for the organisation. We also teach you economic principles and analytical skills, to make sure you know how to research markets, prepare reports and drive overall organisational success.

Just as the world of business is becoming more technologically adept, we make sure we are up-to-date in how we use technology to help you learn. Our courses use online learning platforms, interactive white boards, podcasts and social media, to make sure you leave with an awareness of all of the most hi-tech communication methods used in business. On the International pathway you’ll explore global marketing and learn how business is conducted in Europe, Asia and the Americas. We’ll teach you how to manage teams in other cultures and operate businesses effectively in global markets. You’ll develop the crucial traits needed in international business. As well as a thorough understanding of global business practices, you’ll also strengthen your softer skills, such as how to communicate effectively with colleagues and clients, time management and decision-making.

UK and Channel Island students: This tuition fee is agreed subject to UK government policy and parliamentary regulation. If the UK government passes appropriate legislation, the fee for subsequent years of study may increase in each academic year. But this increase will not exceed the rate of inflation as measured by RPIX**. Any change in fees will apply to both new and continuing students. The University will notify students of any change as early as possible. Further information about fee changes would be posted on the University’s website once this becomes available.

**RPIX is a measure of inflation equivalent to all the items in the Retail Price Index (RPI) excluding mortgage interest payments.

International students: Tuition fees will remain the same for each year of your course, as long as you complete it in the normal time-frame (i.e. no repeat years or breaks in study).

about
Craig Holdcroft
Business Management

Joining Staffordshire University Business School has turned out to be the best decision I’ve made in relation to my career and future prospects. The team at the business school have been amazing and continue to offer me all of the encouragement I could ever want to aim towards a first class degree. Something I couldn’t have even imagined a year before in the world of sales management.

about
Hannah Seera
Business Management with a Foundation Year

My last 3 years at Staffordshire university have given me more than I could have asked for. I was given an opportunity to work a years placement during my sandwich degree, I gained major knowledge and experience within my career field and to top it off I was offered my graduate job out of it. My time here with the other students and lecturers have been magical in terms of support and wellbeing. The resources and opportunities here are fantastic and one thing Staffordshire University has taught me is that everything is achieved through hard work and dedication. 

about
Jack Tordoff
Business Management

I have experienced first-hand just how relevant a Business Management degree from Staffordshire University can be. The theories we learn, practice, and apply to assignments can be similarly applied to real-life business situations. As part of this course, I completed a 12 month Industrial Placement with Aldi. Throughout the Placement I had the opportunity to lead various projects - looking at real business issues – where the models and approaches taught at Staffs proved to be instrumental. A Staffs Business Management degree is your competitive advantage!
