What is business and management?
All courses in Nottingham University Business School involve the study of organisations, their management and the changing external environment in which they operate. While the exact blend of subjects studied depends on the particular course, each degree prepares you for a career in business and management and allows you to develop skills in qualitative and quantitative analysis, critical thinking, oral and written presentation, information technology and group working.
How will I study?
Our programmes enable you to either opt for a broad-based management education or to specialise in a particular aspect of management. All programmes have been carefully designed to allow you to acquire the fundamentals of management and the most recent trends in business thinking. Combining studies in accounting, economics, finance, management and marketing, the interdisciplinary nature of our courses will provide you with the competitive edge to pursue a career in any line of business.
Nottingham University Business School is one of an elite group of business schools accredited by the European Quality Improvement System (EQUIS). Uniquely, the EQUIS accreditation applies to all our campuses – the UK, China and Malaysia. In addition to EQUIS, some of our degree programmes are also accredited by several major professional accountancy bodies. The exemptions that are available from professional examination papers set by these bodies vary depending on the degree programme.
Certain programmes are accredited by the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) / Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) / Institute of Chartered Accountants in England & Wales (ICAEW) / CPA Australia / Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM). As part of a joint certification programme with SAS, a global leader in business analytics, graduates of certain programmes will be awarded SAS Academic Specialisations. Further details on these accreditations and certifications can be found in the individual webpages of our degree programmes.
