Business organisations do not exist in isolation and much of the early part of the programme is focused on understanding the various external driving forces for change and the internal responses necessary for business to survive and prosper. The programme provides a blend of theoretical and practical study, never losing sight of employers' requirements and students' career aspirations. At no point in recent history has there been such an exciting time to study the dynamics of business and its role in the global environment.

The BSc in Business and Management aims to equip graduates with analytical and decision-making skills relevant to career development in the wider business context.

The programme is designed to develop skills in solving business problems that are transferable organisationally and internationally across business environments. Business and Management is a broad based programme that relies to some extent on conventional methods of teaching and learning. However, it is also a live subject, and so practical and real-life projects are introduced to enhance the learning experience and to produce graduates equipped to meet the needs of commerce and industry. This approach is often highly participatory and may involve visits to selected companies to complement classroom activities.

The core disciplines taught through the formal lecture, seminar and tutorial programme are assessed through coursework, group and individual projects and presentations and examinations. Formal examinations enable students to demonstrate their knowledge and understanding of course material as well as their ability to construct a clear / concise reasoned argument and analysis of the issues in question in a limited period of time. Individual and group research-based assignments enable students to integrate theory and practice and to provide constructive and explicit coverage of key issues.
Weightings (course / project work to examinations) vary from course to course and will be made explicit to students on each course specification document.

Students must fulfill the attendance requirement of at least 75% for each module before they are considered eligible to take the end-of-semester examinations.

Students who have completed all necessary course works, successfully passed all required modules and met all financial obligations to the Institute and University of Buckingham shall be awarded the BSc (Honours) Business and Management by The University of Buckingham.
