The bachelor’s degree in management has been designed to help aspiring managers by providing a vocationally oriented program of study for students seeking a career in management. The course focuses on management rather than general business studies. It places emphasis upon developing an understanding of the different areas that management involves together with the development of management skills including management communication, critical evaluation, and organizational appraisal. The aim is to produce graduates with high employability as general and specialist managers in a range of organizations, both profit-seeking, not-for-profit, and in governmental organizations. The achievement of this degree can lead to further study such as a certificate or diploma in management studies or an MA or MBA.
