Our new range of liberal studies degrees provides a true US-style liberal arts education, a first in the UK. You choose a ‘major’ subject area whilst taking a range of ‘electives’ to tailor your degree to match your passions and interests. Every module in our liberal studies programme has been specifically designed for the degree, delivering you a broad-based education which engages you in critical and interdisciplinary thinking. Liberal arts graduates are well-prepared to make the most of opportunities in a fast-moving global economy.
The BA (Hons) Liberal Studies (Business & Management) is designed to provide a thorough framework in broad-based business and management knowledge and to develop skills necessary to thrive in a dynamic and challenging business environment.
It is organised around core business subject areas, such as accounting, marketing, operations, and around core management subjects (including people management and creative leadership). A key aim of this programme is to develop an understanding of the nature of business as a whole and equip you with the tools and techniques applicable to a wide variety of business situations.
This is a three-year, full time programme.

The Dean of Humanities, Arts & Social Sciences Excellence Scholarship
The Dean of the Faculty of Humanities, Arts & Social Sciences has established three scholarships that celebrate the University’s independent, cosmopolitan and enterprising spirit.
Regent’s Family Reward
Regent’s offers an intimate style of education, characterised by lots of personal attention. This personalised approach extends beyond our students to their families, with the University welcoming increasing numbers of brothers, sisters and even children of our alumni each year. The University is delighted to offer the Regent’s Family Reward as a thank-you to our alumni for their and their families’ loyalty.
The Filippo Corsini Polo Scholarship
The Regent’s polo team has enjoyed considerable success over recent years, with our novice team winning second place in the Schools and Universities Polo Association competition in 2014. From March 2017, Regent’s will host its own annual invitational tournament.
To support the team’s continuous improvement, from 2017 the University will award two polo scholarships each year to students who show both the polo skills and the leadership acumen to help the team’s development.
The scholarship is named in memory of Regent’s student Prince Filippo Corsini, an accomplished equestrian and showjumper, in recognition of his sporting prowess and exceptional leadership skills.
Prince Filippo, the heir to a noble Florentine family, was in his first year of study for the BA (Hons) International Business at the University when his life was cut short by a tragic accident in 2016. The scholarship celebrates Filippo’s life and the promise he showed, both on and off the field.
Regent’s Vice Chancellor Professor Aldwyn Cooper described Filippo as a young man who ‘Epitomised the type of student we seek to recruit to Regent’s. His application to study, enjoyment of sport and leadership in many fields were outstanding.’
Filippo’s tutor, Samantha Lee, said: ‘He proved not only to have a keen business mind, but was also a motivational and supportive team player and an inspiring leader. Filippo achieved a first-class result in the team-working and leadership event and his team named him Most Valued Player.’
