Program description

At Keele University, we’re different. Nestled in 600 acres of countryside in the heart of the UK, we have a big campus but a small and cosmopolitan community. We proudly rank 1st for student satisfaction in the National Student Survey for the last three years. This is because it’s more than green and lovely, it’s a place of research and academic excellence too.

At Keele, studying a combined honours degree will include some modules from both of the single honours degrees. In this case, your programme will be made up of a combination of modules from both Business Management and Human Geography. For the Business Management element of the course, you will reflect critically on what you learn about business, to challenge received wisdom, and to think for yourself about the theories you encounter. There’s a specialist approach to Business Management at Keele which distinguishes it from traditional business studies. It emphasises independent thinking, and examines those places where business comes into contact with social-scientific and philosophical disciplines. You’ll explore concepts and debates in organisational behaviour, accounting, marketing, and human resource management, including decision making behaviour across the private and public sectors. You’ll learn to reflect broadly on situations and to contextually apply what you know.

You’ll graduate as a confident, analytical thinker – a skill very much in demand among employers. You’ll be interested in this course if you’d like to pursue a career in management or self-employment. You could choose a career in the commercial, public or charitable sectors. With or without further study, you might eventually work as a management or IT consultant, investment analyst, chartered management accountant, banker, financial advisor or statistician, or in the civil service or in marketing or sales.

For the Human Geography element of the course, you will add to your growing skills in understanding
and influencing the way humans relate to the environment. In the lab,
the field and the archive, you’ll explore the characteristics, diversity,
interdependence and changing nature of places. You’ll understand
the applications and possibilities Human Geography provides in
solving problems, creating wealth and improving quality of life.
You’ll collect and analyse spatial, social and environmental data,
and become familiar with industry standard GIS software for
analysing, visualising and integrating that data. Human Geography at Keele was ranked in the top 10 nationally for
overall student satisfaction in the National Student Survey.

Keele enjoys high rates of graduate employment, where in 2016, were recognised nationally as 1st for employability in the Destination of Leavers from Higher Education survey. In addition to providing very specific human geography skills, this
course will enhance your abilities in communication, make you proficient
in various methods such as GIS or primary data collection, and develop
your creativity in problem solving.
This will all be invaluable as you address social, environmental, ethical
and global problems as part of your studies or in the world of work.
You might go on to work as a planning and development surveyor,
logistics manager, residential surveyor, town planner, international
development worker, transport planner or market researcher.
