This course asks you to reflect critically on what you learn about business, to challenge received wisdom, and to think for yourself about the theories you encounter.
There’s a specialist approach to Business Management at Keele which distinguishes it from traditional business studies. It emphasizes independent thinking, and examines those places where business comes into contact with social-scientific and philosophical disciplines. You’ll explore concepts and debates in organisational behaviour, accounting, marketing, and human resource management, including decision making behaviour across the private and public sectors. You’ll learn to reflect broadly on situations and to contextually apply what you know. This dual honours programme could be very successfully combined with law, human geography, finance, politics or psychology.
