Business and Management (Foundation) FdA

As a foundation degree, this course is for students who might not have academic experience other than school but are working in a business.


Over your studies, you'll cover the first two years of the BA (Hons) Business and Management degree with the option to top-up your degree to full undergraduate honours when you graduate.


You'll learn about key issues in the business world and their effects on how modern companies are managed.


Teaching is done through classroom and self-study, using your own work experience to talk about business theory and help you take your learning from the classroom to the workplace. Plus, you'll go on work-based practice in a company you choose.


You'll be marked on assignments of your choice, which means you can focus your degree on your interests and career goals.
