Business Undergraduate Courses

Take your first step to becoming an outstanding business leader. Our practical and inspiring degrees in Business and Management or International Business will put you at the heart of the business action and in prime position for a high-flying career.   

Our Business courses fall into two distinct areas. Our Business and Management courses will prepare you to be a business leader of the future. All our business management courses are dual accredited by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI). This means you’ll achieve a highly respected second professional qualification upon successful completion of your course, adding additional value to your CV. You’ll be able to build your own degree that matches your interests and aspirations, with courses featuring specialist pathways and an extensive choice of optional modules.

Our International Business courses will allow you to meet the challenges of today’s increasingly global and complex business environment. We nurture your interest in how businesses run in different countries, cultures and markets and keep you right up to date with what’s happening in the world economy. You’ll focus on economic, financial, legal and cultural factors facing international businesses, crucial for students aspiring to work for global organisations.

I chose to study Business Management at the University of Derby because of the combination of academic challenge and teaching quality. The practical focus of the course makes the prospect of studying a business degree highly appealing.
