About

Developed in close consultation with the Chartered Management Institute (CMI), this Business Management (Enterprise) (Hons) course offered at University of Derby puts you on the fast track to success. It is one of the few in the country where you’ll graduate with a highly regarded BA (Hons) Business Management as well as the CMI Level 5 Diploma in Management and Leadership.

Whether you have an idea for a business start-up or want to impress potential employers with your entrepreneurial mindset, this course will stand you in good stead. We have designed specialist modules which enable you to identify business opportunities, assess their potential and translate them into reality.

You will learn how to harness creativity to solve business problems and make better products and services. We explore the pros and cons of freelancing, the challenges of launching a business and how to take an innovative product to market. There is also a focus on how start-up ventures and small businesses can prosper in the global landscape.

Flexibility is one of the most distinctive features of our Business Management suite of degrees. All students study the same modules in the first year to gain insights into the major business disciplines.

After your first year, you can choose to follow the specialist pathway in Enterprise or – if you find your interests have changed – you can easily transfer to one of our other pathways in HRM, Marketing, Finance or International Business.  Alternatively, you could choose the core Business Management route, drawing on our extensive list of optional modules to develop a broader skillset.

Careers

Your qualifications will equip you for a rewarding career in any area of business and management where people with ideas, drive and creativity are valued. Our former students now work in a wide range of organisations such as Severn Trent Water, Galliford Try, ESG, Cott Beverages and The Keystone Group.

The skills you gain on this course will also stand you in good stead if you want to launch a business, develop a social enterprise, go self-employed or work on a consultancy basis.

If you’re an aspiring entrepreneur, we offer a comprehensive range of services – from incubation units to professional mentoring – to help you realise your business ambitions once you’ve graduated.
