This course is the broadest and most popular of our suite of business courses. You'll develop knowledge and skills for a future as a manager: for example, 90% of students on this course said their communication skills had improved (2010 National Student Survey).
Compared to courses such as Business and Marketing or Business and Finance, 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 Business School received top ranking in the North East from the Guardian University Guide 2012, and 85% of our business graduates enter employment or further study within six months of graduating, according to the Destination of Higher Education Leavers Survery 2010.
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.
There are two start dates for this course: September and January. For more information please see the entry requirements page.
