About this program
Management BSc Hons
The BSc (Hons) in Management introduces you to organisations in all sectors and teaches you to understand techniques which draw from the subject including marketing, organisational behaviour, managing in diverse and challenging situations, and analysing financial data. From your studies, you will acquire interpersonal skills in problem-solving, critical thinking and self-reliance, and are empowered to interrogate evidence, challenge logic, and question existing ways of doing things.
You will learn from a team of international scholars whose teaching and research are based on the concept of responsible enterprise, which entails an ethical approach to managing organisations and their social and environmental impacts.
The BSc course is particularly suited for those wanting a range of options across science subjects, but who want to give most of their attention to management. For those interested in studying management alongside arts subjects, the MA in Management may be of interest instead of the BSc.
