Working in a large international organisation, a medium sized company or even a small start-up firm requires a range of business capabilities. The most valuable employees are those who have not only a sound knowledge and understanding of the various aspects of a business, but those who demonstrate strong leadership potential. 

The ‘Business with’ suite of courses has been developed for those who are looking to enhance their business acumen or offer those seeking a grounding in business a strong platform on which to build. So whether your first degree was in business or not, this course will help you establish your career in the business world. To be successful on this course, you will need enthusiasm, commitment and a willingness to not only work hard but to embrace new ways of thinking. We also expect you to show initiative and be able to work independently.

The modules have been carefully written to cover general business functions, strategic management and organisational analysis – all skills which are geared to develop capabilities specific to employability. In the second semester you will have the opportunity to specialise in a choice of pathways.

The pathway will provide you with an insight into contemporary issues facing international hospitality organisations. It provides a detailed examination of an extensive range of issues pertaining to the industry including the nature of the hospitality workforce, the changing patterns in supply and demand, distribution and the influence of the media, sustainability and emerging markets.

In the final semester you will complete your research and subsequent dissertation. Every student has a personal research supervisor and will be required to submit an assessed research proposal prior to embarking on the dissertation itself. Alternatively, you have the option to undertake a Masters consultancy project.
