Studying Management (BSc) encourages a wide range of relevant, highly transferable and sought-after skills. These help to prepare you for the challenges you will face after university; everything from a career in a multinational corporation to starting and running your own business.

Our highly ranked course taught by world-renowned academics will help you develop the skills, knowledge and confidence to operate effectively in roles within international brands, multinational companies, global financial markets and new business ventures.

As the course progresses, you can choose modules to tailor your experience to meet your interests, development needs and career aspirations. This means you can follow a generalist route in business and management to keep your career options open, choose to specialise in a particular discipline such as Digital Innovation or Entrepreneurship, or alternatively chose one of our recognised Pathways in Finance, and Marketing. You also have the opportunity to extend your degree by carrying out a work placement in your third year.

Previous students have completed placements with companies including Rolls-Royce, Ford, IBM, Microsoft, EY, Nestlé and Accenture. As a WBS student you will have access to CareersPlus, who provide a range of individual and group sessions and interventions to help you source a placement or summer internship.

The flexibility of this course means that you can either generalise or specialise by choosing certain modules in your second and final year in areas such as finance, marketing, digital innovation and entrepreneurship.

Year One: all core modules; Year Two three core and five optional modules; Final Year two core and six options.

You will learn in a variety of ways – primarily through a mixture of lectures, seminars, workshops and online learning.

Contact hours
This varies by year but you will have approximately 15 hours per week of class time, plus student support and feedback hours.

Class size
Class sizes vary by module: there can be up to 500 students in lectures (mainly Year One) and then around 25 in seminars. Some electives are much smaller.

You will be assessed through a combination of end of year examinations and on-going assessments, which may include essays, research assignments, projects, case study analysis, class tests, presentations and group work. The final degree classification is determined by your second and final year marks and each contributes 50%.

The following WBS degrees enable you to spend time studying abroad:

  • International Management
  • International Business with French
  • International Business with German
  • International Business with Italian
  • International Business with Spanish

Study abroad is not a requirement of this course, nor is it guaranteed, however if there are places available once allocations have been made to the students on the above courses, those studying other degrees may be considered.

A level: AAA - you will also need a GCSE grade A/ grade 7 in Mathematics and GCSE grade A/grade 7 in at least one humanities or social science subject.

IB: 38

Additional requirements: You will also need to meet our English Language requirements.
