    Business Management BA graduate

    Every aspect of the course has been exciting. I particularly enjoyed the third year modules. Strategic Management gave me a deep insight into the workings of a business environment and Leadership Management helped me discover my strengths and weakness in order to become an effective leader in the future.

    I loved working closely with academics, who are leaders in their field. They ensured the entire course provided not only academic theory but also practical and relevant information specifically designed and tailored towards my future career.
