Combine a Business Management degree with an internationally recognised professional qualification – and open the door to a high-flying, high-achieving career.

One of our priorities is to foster a new generation of responsible business leaders with a strong moral compass – forward-thinkers who take decisions based on the interests not only of shareholders but also of other stakeholders. Throughout the course, you will therefore look at the role of business in wider society, exploring issues ranging from environmental sustainability to child labour, ethical governance to responsible innovation.

Developed in close consultation with the premier professional body for managers, the Chartered Management Institute (CMI), this course puts you on the fast track to success. You will graduate with a highly regarded BA (Hons) Business Management as well as the CMI Level 5 Diploma in Management and Leadership.

With these qualifications on your CV, you will signal to prospective employers that you’re suited for senior leadership roles and rapid promotion. The Diploma is the benchmark qualification for full CMI membership and takes you a step towards Chartered Manager status. There is no need to take extra exams or coursework to achieve the Diploma: our combined module and CMI assessments give you a smooth route to both qualifications.

 Assessment                                                                       

You will benefit from an innovative variety of assessment modes. Assessment is mainly via coursework which can take forms such as traditional essays and reports, group project work, research and consultancy projects, presentations, posters, and design of digital materials. There are also in-class tests and computer-based assessments.

Teaching & Learning                                                      

We take a ‘scaffolded’ approach to learning, so you will have full support in the early stages of your course and can gradually move towards stronger understanding and greater independence. It is a smooth transition to ease your way into both HE-level study and business management practice.

Through your contact with tutors – as well as your participation in College events – you will become more attuned to professional behaviour and will build your skills in critical thinking, creativity and self-reliance before immersing yourself in the wider business community.

The course incorporates formal lectures, sometimes involving guest speakers; tutor-led and student-led seminars; one-to-one and small group tutorials; work experience projects; work-related learning and self-directed study.  By stage three, you are expected to be more in charge of your own learning, with module tutors advising and directing your studies.

As a partner student you will be granted access to the University’s online learning environment ‘University of Derby Online (UDo)’. From within UDo you will be able to access the University’s Library (including an extensive range of eBooks, eJournals, audio and video resources), course resources related to your programme and your grades.
