BA (Hons) Business Management with Foundation Year

... United Kingdom
... Fairfield School of Business

Course Overview

FSB offers an innovative foundation year to complement the Undergraduate Degrees.  Our Foundation Year* is the first year of a four-year degree. Completion of the foundation year leads to the first year of the 3-year degree in Business Management.  

 

The foundation year provides those unable to access the traditional UCAS tariff requirements for a three-year degree with an alternative route to gain an honours degree. 

The BA Honours in Business Management programme seeks to help you develop competencies and skills essential for a range of careers in the private, public, or third/voluntary sector.  It offers you opportunities to develop your skills in presentation, data analysis, report writing, and the use of business software.  During your studies, you will be able to meet business practitioners through guest lectures and other events such as recruitment fairs.  You will have access to management, enterprise and leadership modules, which are considered desirable by a large number of UK employers.  Additionally, At Level 5 you will undertake a mandatory work-related learning module.  

At Level 6 you will study two specialisation electives, with problem-based and research-led learning approaches.  You will learn to process and analyse both structured and unstructured data and/or information, act as an effective team member and engage in ethical and sustainable decision-making processes. 

  

What does the course cover? 

  • Major functional areas of business and management such as Finance, Human Resources, Accounting, and Marketing.

How will I be assessed? 

  • The programme uses a wide range of assessment methods.  Formative assessments will be used to monitor your progress on the course and enable your tutors to identify any support needs you may have prior to undertaking your summative assessments. 

  • The assessment portfolio includes case study analysis, formal examinations, individual and group business reports, oral and poster presentations, multiple choice questions, individual research projects and so on.  Clear assessment criteria enable you to evaluate your progress and identify areas for further improvement and development.
