Cardiff University Business Management

We offer a range of programmes for students who want to pursue a career in business and management reflecting the breadth of our research expertise and current developments in the business world.

Our three-year BSc Business Management programmes share a generic first year, during which you will take seven compulsory modules from across the range of business disciplines, providing a broad understanding of business and management contexts and processes.

The BSc Business Management programme provides a broad education across the range of business and management subjects. There is greater scope for students to choose optional modules in this programme and due to the broad nature of the degree, students take at least one module in their final year from each of the fields of HRM, Marketing, Accounting, Operations and General Management.
