Year one ensures you have a broad and grounded knowledge of business today, giving a platform to develop specialised knowledge as you progress through the course. You´ll explore how organisations work, how they are managed and how they interact with the business environment. You´ll gain an understanding of economic thinking. You´ll develop management skills in gathering and assessing information and data, in making and communicating decisions and in evaluating their effect.
In year two you´ll specialise in law as well as learning about the functions of a business and how these interrelate. You’ll start to form opinions about how businesses manage the challenges that are presented to them on a daily basis. You´ll have the opportunity to work on projects and to use business techniques to solve problems, and you’ll start to develop your employability skills before seeking a placement at the end of this study year.
At the end of Year two you have the option to choose a ten month placement or a shorter ten week placement in a business. This is an invaluable chance to apply your legal knowledge and business skills in the real world, making you even more attractive to employers.
In your final year, when you finish your placement, you´ll practice, develop, challenge and explore all your business learning, and examine management as an integrating activity. In your law-related dissertation you´ll explore in depth a topic related to law or regulation that really interests you. You’ll also have the opportunity to work individually or with colleagues to develop and set up a business, and you’ll study a specialist law option.
