Looking to join a graduate training scheme or land a graduate job in business? Our ‘Business With’ courses develop broad business skills while also offering a subsidiary pathway (around 33%) that starts after the first year, giving you an extra edge in employability.

BA (Hons) Business with Management is the broadest of our ‘Business With’ courses.  In the second and final years you will be exposed to modules which range across disciplines like finance, entrepreneurship, marketing and tourism.

The course is covered by the prestigious AACSB accreditation for Newcastle Business School, which was ‘Business School of the Year’ at the Times Higher Education Awards 2015. The relevance, rigour and internationalisation of the course has been tested through the EPAS accreditation process.

Students completing the 3 year FT delivery will be expected to undertake a final year UG Consultancy Project, rather than a dissertation.  In doing this, they are then graduating having followed a “real world” experience as part of their undergraduate studies.

Newcastle Business School has a global reputation for delivering some of the best business management education in the UK. We are part of an elite group of less than 1% of business schools worldwide with double accreditation from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) in business and accounting.

Our staff are actively pushing at the frontiers of knowledge and generating new concepts and insights. Over 40% of our publication outputs and 60% of our impact case studies have been assessed as internationally excellent or world leading. The quality of our research, teaching and engagement with business were among the factors that led to Newcastle Business School being named ‘Business School of the Year’ at the Times Higher Education Awards 2015.

Your tutors will use a variety of teaching methods including lectures, seminars, problem-based workshops, case discussions, practical activities, group work and tutorials. To facilitate the essential learning that needs to take place outside of formal contact sessions, there will be directed learning tasks during every module.

Teaching is backed up by a well-designed support system that will underpin your learning journey. You will have a Guidance Tutor with whom you can discuss academic or personal issues. We make sure that extensive feedback, from both tutors and peers, is built into the course.

Assessments involve the application of business principles to solve problems, and assessment methods will include business reports, presentations and portfolios. In the final year there is an assessed dissertation or consultancy project.

Newcastle Business School provides first-class teaching in a world-class environment. From social spaces and hub areas to lecture theatres and exhibition spaces, our facilities are exceptional.

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.

Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) is embedded throughout the course with tools such as the ‘Blackboard’ eLearning Portal and electronic reading lists that will guide your preparation for seminars and independent research. Our use of lecture capture software will help you revise challenging material.

There will be plenty of opportunities to put your learning into practice. The Student Engagement Centre promotes all types of experiential learning including volunteering, internships and placements. The Business Clinic enables our students to participate in a ‘consultancy firm’ to provide advice for our region’s businesses.

Northumbria’s strong research ethos is an essential aspect of how you will develop as a critical, reflective and independent thinker. Our enquiry-based, problem-solving approach to topics requires the acquisition of research skills like information literacy, sampling, statistical reporting and surveying. In the final year you will undertake a significant investigatory task in the form of either a dissertation or a consultancy project.

Throughout the course your learning will be directly impacted by the teaching team’s active research into their specialist subjects. Newcastle Business School was the eighth most improved business school in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF). Our three signature research themes are digital business, strategic innovation and entrepreneurial leadership, and responsible business. Specific areas of research include financial crime, corporate reporting, social entrepreneurship, business ethics, and corporate social responsibility.

Employability is at the heart of our ‘Business With’ suite of courses, with every module reinforcing the transferable attributes that are necessary for graduate employment. In addition there are three modules that explicitly focus on career-development skills: Building Business Practice, Building Professional Practice, and Employability and Career Planning. These modules leverage the resources available at our Careers and Employment Service.

There will be opportunities to gain practical experience that gives you a further career edge. Throughout the course we encourage you to participate in the Business Clinic, joining a team of business students in giving advice to clients.

By the end of this course you’ll be in an excellent position to apply for graduate training schemes and graduate roles within both large corporations and small and medium-sized enterprises. Previous graduates have gone on to work for employers in a wide range of industries, including digital media, manufacturing, finance and hospitality.

You can also undertake further study at postgraduate level with a course such as any of our Business Masters’ courses depending upon your interests and career aspirations. If you decide to start up your own business, it’s good to know that the combined turnover of our graduates’ start-up companies is higher than that of any other UK university.

Whatever you decide to do, you’ll have strong employability as a result of having acquired the characteristics of a Northumbria graduate. These include critical reflection and self-learning, collaboration and curiosity, and the ability to apply your knowledge to solve problems in ways that are sustainable and ethical.
