Business Management

Overview

Are you interested in learning about the relationship between business and society?

Our BSc in Business Management is designed to develop your understanding of management techniques and the forces at work in business. You’ll build on your creative thinking, communication and analytical skills while learning about key business practices like accounting, marketing, human resources and organisational innovation.

The first year will provide you with a solid foundation in business and management theory and practice. In your second and third years you can tailor your studies through a wide range of option modules, allowing you to build expertise in a particular field of business and prepare for your chosen career path.

You will graduate with a working knowledge of the real-world strategies and processes used by contemporary organisations from small- to medium-sized enterprises to large multinationals and across the private, public and not-for-profit sectors.

Testimonial

The Business Management programme is unique in the wide scope of modules available in second and third years. I founded a society, ‘Queen Mary Business and Enterprise Society’, with my acquired knowledge and skills.

Teaching and Facilities

Teaching and learning

Teaching and research are based on three pillars: governance; social justice and sustainability; and the UN Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME).

You'll receive approximately three hours of weekly contact time per module, comprising lectures led by academic staff and smaller seminar groups.

For every hour spent in class, you’ll complete a further two to three hours of independent study. You'll have access to well-designed resources for this self-directed study, and we will pair you with an academic adviser to support your progress at all stages of your degree.

Assessment

Assessment typically includes a combination of coursework (presentations, assignments, essay report writing, in-class tests, research and project work) and/or examinations in May or June. 

Resources and facilities

The School offers excellent on-campus resources to aid your studies, including:

  • a purpose-built media suite designed to support student entrepreneurship
  • a dedicated Internships Coordinator for work experience opportunities and applications
  • a free four-day leadership development course for third year students, providing practical leadership training outside the classroom
  • an alumni network that can connect you to fellow Queen Mary graduates worldwide.
