Business and HR Courses
Ready to do business rather than just learn about business? Then let us be your guide.
We take the theories off the page and place you at the heart of the business action. You’ll work with employers on live projects and gain meaningful hands-on experience. You’ll be inspired by some of the region’s brightest business minds.
Our innovative portfolio of both undergraduate and postgraduate courses offers true flexibility and choice. In a city founded on enterprise, we draw on strong employer networks – from global corporates to SMEs and micro-businesses. And we set the highest professional standards: our partnerships with bodies like the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) lend substance to your learning.
Helpful and approachable lecturers
“The lecturers at the University were always very helpful and approachable. The course material was easily accessible through the University website and therefore anything that you felt you may not have understood in the lecture you could look over again.
“In my final year we were all assigned a personal tutor to support us with anything that may have been a concern. Having this support network in place was vital for me.”
