What to Expect From a Business Management Degree

A degree in business management can open many doors and unlock a range of careers. Here’s what to expect from the course.

As a discipline, business management can be quite broad in context, and it can see graduates working across all sectors. That’s why the University of Bolton’s BSc Hons Business Management programme aims to teach students transferrable skills that will benefit them in any workplace.

If you’re interested in kick starting your business management career, here are the things you can expect as you earn your degree…

You’ll develop key business skills

A business management degree is all about turning students into a valuable asset for any organisation. During your studies, you’ll get a chance to learn the following:

- How to develop your critical and strategic thinking

- Effective ways of communication

- How to collaborate, excel at teamwork tasks and people manage

- Problem-solving skills

- Good organisation and time management

- Presentation and reporting basics

- The art of successful project management

- Leadership skills

Real insight into the workplace

We aim to make our course as immersive as possible. This ensures that students enjoy relevant skills development, giving them a better chance of getting hired in the real world.

Our programme shines a light on real-life case studies so you can put your skills and knowledge to the test during modules. And through this framework, you’ll develop insight into business management across local, national and international contexts.

We also invite guest speakers to give you an idea of what it’s like to work in a dynamic business environment, and we organise industry visits to make your training even more immersive and exciting.

A chance to be your own boss

That’s right, our degree allows you to develop a range of skills that could turn you into a future CEO, or successful entrepreneur! Autonomy is a big part of working in business, and is just as important as teamwork skills.

Throughout the course, you’ll have opportunities to work on your leadership skills, and you can even choose to go into a certain specialism (such as Law, Finance, Retail etc.)

And because you’ll be surrounded by like-minded business students who share the same passions, you can build your professional network, share ideas, and maybe even come up with a brand new concept together.

Students who choose to study for a business management career will be able to graduate with multiple skills for a variety of workplaces.

Furthermore, as you progress through the programme, you’ll get to shape your career path in the direction you want, working closely with our passionate lecturers who care about your professional development.

Our dedicated Employability Team will be on hand too, providing the resources you need and supporting your career ambitions every step of the way.
