Undergraduate

The greatest business leaders solve problems, make things simpler and see the best in people.

Our undergraduate courses are split into three subject areas: accounting and finance, economics and management, and our modules are led by experts who’ve made their mark in the business world.

In your first year you’ll cover the basics of your course. You’re not expected to know exactly what direction you’ll take which is why we offer flexible first years in our subject areas. At the end of your first year you can change to another course in your subject area to make the most of your interests and strengths.  You'll also start to specialise your course by selecting option modules. You may even decide to study abroad or gain valuable experience with a year in industry between your second and final years.

Some of our courses are changing from September 2020, so please select your year of entry to see the degrees available.
