“Helpful and approachable lecturers”

“One of the reasons I chose to study Business Management at the University of Derby was the combination of academic challenge and teaching quality. The practical focus of the course makes the prospect of studying a business degree highly appealing for those attracted to the competitive yet collaborative business environment."

“Another reason was the close proximity of companies such as Rolls-Royce and PWC, local companies that work with the university to get students work ready through internships, summer placements and part-time roles."
