Student Life / #IAmNorthumbria

Discover more about life in Newcastle and studying at Northumbria.

Our BA (Hons) Business Management programme features research-rich, but practice-led, teaching that develops your cultural, contextual and ethical professional understanding. Alongside conventional approaches we also embrace student-led, experiential, problem-based learning for which you’re supported to work interactively and collaboratively.  

You’ll learn through real-world case studies of multinational corporations and regional/local SMEs, as well as public and not-for-profit organisations and social enterprises. This cultivates your capacity for practical application, leadership and management.  

Virtual, self-directed learning technologies support you 24/7 including extensive, carefully curated resources from the world’s leading management researchers and practitioners. Our eLearning portal also enables you to contact your tutors in real time and to submit the formative and summative assessments that support your learning. 

Between Levels 5 and 6 you can spend a placement year in industry. We have strong links with a wide range of local through to international organisations offering excellent placement opportunities. Alternatively, you might choose to take a study year abroad, a chance to experience a different academic environment and culture through our partners in countries including Japan, Australia, Europe and US.  Whether you work or study, this crucial, real-world experience will enhance your options for professional employment or other enterprise-related activity. 

The development of your research and discovery capabilities is underpinned by both statistical and qualitative approaches. In the final year, this culminates in a 40-credit student-led, supervisor-supported integrative dissertation, a ‘live client’ management enquiry or consultancy project with our Business Clinic, or an enterprise project. It all contributes to your real-world learning.

Our academic teaching teams comprise experienced management practitioners and researchers who continue to be actively engaged in professional practice. To maintain their professional profile, our staff are actively engaged in consultancy, enterprise, organisational consultancy and research in areas such as supporting workforces through global crises, financial crime, ageing workforce, organisational psychology, social entrepreneurship, business ethics and corporate social responsibility. Our academics are also members of signature research groups that include digital business, strategic innovation and entrepreneurial leadership, and responsible business. 

The involvement of our academics in these activities directly informs the content of modules we teach offering the chance to develop up-to-the-minute understanding of the challenges of complex, global workplaces.

At Newcastle Business School you’ll experience a first-class education in a world-class environment. From our social spaces and hub areas to lecture theatres and exhibition spaces, our facilities are exceptional. For example, the 24/7 university library achieves some of the highest levels of student satisfaction in the UK and has held the Cabinet Office accreditation for Customer Service Excellence since 2010. 

We’re also committed to helping you make the most of Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) by embedding it throughout the course. Tools such as the ‘Blackboard’ eLearning Portal and electronic reading lists are there to help you efficiently and thoroughly prepare for seminars and independent research. Lecture capture software means you can revise previously lectured material online in your time, as well as at your speed. 

What’s more, there are plenty of opportunities to put your learning into practice through volunteering, internships and placements. This includes the Business Clinic that provides student consultancy facilities to work with our clients in response to their business problem. Our clients are drawn from a range of organisations including multinationals, SMEs, not-for-profit charities and social enterprises from across the region and nationally.

Facilities / Learning Environment

Newcastle Business School delivers first class teaching in a world class environment.

Northumbria University is a research-rich, business-focused, professional university with a global reputation for academic excellence. 

This ethos underpins the problem-based, experiential learning approaches embedded within our research-rich curriculum. This approach will equip you to apply and develop knowledge in ‘real world’ situations, mindful of the cultural context and able to act ethically with integrity. 

In the final year of the programme you’ll develop your capabilities as a critically reflective manager capable of making a strategic impact through proactively leading change. As well as tutor-directed, research-rich modules, you’ll undertake a substantial, independent research-based project relating to your chosen subject specialism. This project will help you develop and demonstrate your curiosity, creative problem-solving and innovative capability to critically evaluate and analyse academic or professional practice. 

At Newcastle Business School we’re committed to preparing you for your future career and helping you compete in the graduate labour market. So we’ve designed the BA Business Management programme to support you in developing the key competencies, skills and attitude that graduates need. Developing leadership, enterprise and employability capabilities is at the heart of all module learning experiences and assessment. 

We make your personal-professional development and career planning a priority across all years of the programme. You’ll develop your knowledge and understanding of the graduate labour market and of current trends in graduate recruitment and selection, applying this to your own career planning. 

We offer a number of additional opportunities to enhance your CV, develop your employability or enterprise skills, and increase commercial awareness. These include work placements, overseas travel and study, guest speakers and networking. There are also volunteering programmes both within and outside the University, and representing your programme at Programme or School level.  

Many of our students have successfully secured management positions in public and private organisations. Others have established their own businesses or gone on to further study.
