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 economics, accounting, marketing, and human resource management. You’re not expected to know exactly what direction you’ll take - which is why you won’t start specialising until your second year, when you can choose your option modules. You may even decide to study abroad or gain valuable experience with a year in industry between your second and final years.
