This course is the broadest and most popular of our suite of business courses. According to the Guardian University Guide 2015, business, management and marketing ranks Best in the North East for Course Satisfaction, Satisfaction with Teaching and for Satisfaction with Feedback.
Compared to courses such as Business and Marketing or Business and Financial Management, this Business and Management route does not focus on one narrow area of a business, but instead allows you to study a wider range of business practices, including marketing, finance, human resources and operations.
Sunderland is a great place for studying business and in the recent Research Excellence Framework (REF) research in the business area was rated 'world-leading' and 'internationally excellent'. Sunderland is one of the first universities in the UK to introduce employability modules across all years of an undergraduate degree. These help you strengthen the six key attributes of being capable, enquiring, creative, enterprising, ethical and global in outlook. The modules also help you identify your strengths and aspirations, and plan for personal development.
We encourage our students to undertake a year-long placement between the second and final years, although it is not compulsory. It's a great opportunity to get paid to put your learning into practice and to extend your experience.
