BA (Hons) Applied Business Management

Why choose this course?

This qualification is aimed at professionals who are in, or aspire to be in, a managerial position within their organisation and are responsible for strategic decisions and change which benefits the organisation as a whole.

  • Are strategic business managers responsible for leading and managing change
  • Are involved in project management who wish to ensure successful planning and implementation
  • Have completed the CIPP’s Foundation Degree in Payroll Management or Foundation Degree in Pensions Administration and Management (or preceding qualifications) and wish to further develop their business management skills
