Which business course is right for you?

Business is a large sector, which is also exciting, with many areas to specialise in. It’s understandable that it may be hard to decipher what path to take, so we’ve broken down our Business courses to make it easier for you to determine which course is best for you.

Business, Marketing and HR

Our business courses help you to develop a wide range of cognitive and intellectual skills. These courses will provide you with the opportunity to develop specialist business expertise while helping you learn key transferable skills too, all of which will help you stand out when it comes to securing employment.

If marketing is more up your street, you may want to consider our marketing focused courses that give you the practice-based skills needed to succeed in the ever-changing disciplines of marketing. A more specialised marketing approach may be what you are looking for. We offer pathways in Advertising & PR and Digital Communications. Or combine two areas of expertise with a Business and Marketing course.

Are you more of a people person? Our Human Resource Management (HRM) degree equips you with the tools you need to develop the high-performing workforce and innovative teams demanded by business. This course teaches you about the importance of motivating and managing people within a business, showing you the link between successful performance and the people you employ.

Accounting, Finance and Economics

Our Accounting, Finance and Economics courses provide a valuable insight into the worlds of Accountancy practice, Commerce and Finance. You may want to look at Finance and Investment to apply your skills in the investing world. Or perhaps Economics may be a good choice for you if you are interested in the Global Economy.
