What our students say...

“I have enjoyed being a Joint Honours student as it allowed me to study my two main interests of business management and computing. I have found it an enjoyable experience and would recommend it to anyone. It has also allowed me to get a great job as it combines my two key areas which go together hand in hand.”

Studying Business Management will prepare you for a wide range of interesting and challenging careers in public, private and voluntary sectors, both in the UK and overseas. You will be able to select from a wide range of sectors in which to work, including accounting, advertising, banking, distribution, human resources, finance, insurance, leisure, marketing, operations management, retail and sales. You are likely to work initially as a trainee manager in a large organisation, or perhaps as a junior manager in a smaller one before moving on to more senior management positions.

A degree in Computing will open doors to a very broad range of career options. Many of our graduates go on to careers in systems analysis, website design, database design, network management, software development, security analysis, mobile apps development and IT services and support.  It may also inspire you to set up your own business or to work freelance.
