Program description


Part-time Foundation degree in Business Management - 2 Years

The foundation degree in business management is a 2-year program that focuses on the development of employability skills. The course will teach students how to acquire and understand academic knowledge, and how to be able to confidently apply this knowledge in practice.

This will be done through developing your skills as communicators, team work ability, and critical thinking skills. The program will also support career progression, aspirations and provide you with business management skills.

How does it work?

Students are consistently encouraged to apply their learning to their work place. There will be engagement with businesses, a focus on real-life scenarios and activities to foster understanding of the integrated nature of business functional areas. The Skills Company aims to provide you with courses which enhance your employability by instilling a lifelong commitment to reflective practice and professionalism.

Discussion and full participation are encouraged with a variety of teaching methods being used. The program on which you are about to embark is a demanding one that requires a high level of commitment but it can be immensely rewarding.

As Staffordshire students and through the “Staffordshire Graduate” program, the student is the focus.
