Our integrated business foundation year is designed to provide you with the core business, economics and entrepreneurial knowledge and skills to enable you to progress on to the BA (Hons) Global Management with Pathways. During the year you will develop mathematical and analytical skills, conduct research and write in both academic and business English.
You will learn to analyse problems and propose a range of solutions you have personally developed. You will also be able to apply the knowledge and skills you have learned as part of a business development project.
The BA (Hons) Global Management with Pathways is carefully structured to offer you an integrated and holistic approach to management studies. It builds your skills across four complementary areas of management practice, after which you follow a specialist pathway.
The programme not only taps into current trends, but also looks to the future, allowing you to study subjects that are highly relevant in today’s competitive workplace and prepare to manage changing future trends.
You will learn the key skills, such as critical thinking and negotiation that are vital to current and future business leaders. You will learn to manage uncertainty and assess risk and become a confident decision-maker. We encourage you to challenge established pre-conceptions and critically question the world around you, developing both resilience and adaptability.
This is a full time programme with integrated foundation. It takes 4 years to complete if you start in September or 3.5 years if you start in January.
If you begin the programme in January, you will complete your second term in the summer (May to August). This enables you to begin your second year in September and complete your degree in 3.5 years. You will study for the same number of terms as students starting in September, but over a shorter period of time.
Subsequent years of study then follow a standard academic year format of autumn and spring terms.
*Please note: some students may be required to complete an additional module in English language study if necessary.

The integrated foundation year employs a wide range of teaching methods including:
The curriculum delivery methods used on the BA (Hons) Global Management ranges from traditional lectures and seminars, to technology-supported ‘flipped classroom’ workshops and labs. As you progress through the levels of the programme, the emphasis shifts from learning to analysis and critical appraisal of the subject matter, reflecting your academic and personal development.
We emphasise the practical application of academic learning, always seeking to develop connections between practice and theory. You will explore real-world case studies, visit different organisations around London and hear from regular guest lecturers. You will also have the ability to test your own skills through role plays and experiential learning/simulations, where you have the opportunity to shape the evidence of your own learning.
The integrated foundation year uses a variety of assessment methods including reflective reviews, exercises around practical business problems, presentations and case studies.
A wide range of assessment methods are used on the BA (Hons) Global Management programme. Seen and unseen examinations, presentations, written assignments, portfolio building, group work and business simulations are utilised as modes of assessment.
Substantial emphasis is placed on self-directed learning through assessments and module curriculum.
