The University of Chester Business School has extended its offer for students, who can now achieve a Single Honours BA in Business Management with a choice of either Business Finance, Entrepreneurship, Human Resources or Marketing.

The decision to take a specialism is taken in the second and third years of study and can be reflected in their degree award title, perfect for career focussed individuals who know the area they want to enter.

If students don’t wish to specialise they can select from a wider selection of modules which best suit their career interests.

Dr Ian Pownall, Programme Leader for the course, said: The Business Management programme at Chester Business School operates as a cluster structure, to allow students to maximise their choice in how they develop their studies.

“We hope that this enhanced Business Management Degree will stand out as a fantastic option for future business managers. Studying Business Management maintains flexibility regarding a wide variety of potential career paths. Choosing to also develop knowledge and skills in selectable focused areas can also give students an edge in those jobs where they are valuable and make them stand out from the crowd.”

Also being launched by the University for 2018 is a top-up programme, which allows students with an HNC or equivalent to study for a year to achieve a full Single Honours degree in Business Management and Administration.

The University has excellent employability rates and the Business Management degree, the most popular programme in the Business School, is no exception, with 92.7% of students continuing to employment or further study on graduating, according tothe latest Destination of Leavers in Higher Education survey.

Professor Clare Schofield, Executive Dean of the Faculty of Business and Management said: “The Business School has worked with employers to ensure its suite of programmes is closely aligned to industry and these new updates are just part of our continuous drive to meet both student and employer needs.”

Based at the University’s stunning Queen’s Park Campus in Handbridge, Chester, the courses are on track for 2018 and recruiting now for the January UCAS deadline.  Anyone wishing to find out more about studying Business Management at Chester can contact Programme Leader Dr Ian Pownall on 01244 511814.
