What will I study?

Your first year of study will give you a good grounding in accounting, finance, management, work psychology, marketing, sociology and economics. This will help you to make informed choices about optional course units in later years.

Second-year course content is determined by whether you select a specialism or prefer to continue to study a broad range of topics. If you decide to specialise you will study 40 credits of core course units relating to your chosen specialism and 80 credits of optional course units to bring your total to 120 credits. If you do not wish to specialise, you will choose 120 credits of optional course units from across the management portfolio, which includes all of the core course units for each specialism alongside additional topics. You can select optional units from our University Language Centre and/or University College including the Manchester Leadership Programme.

If you successfully apply for a work placement this will take place between your second and final year. You will put theory into practice, develop transferable skills and gain an insight into your chosen profession.

In your final year, you will choose at least 60 credits of final-year options from your chosen specialist area (if you have one) and an additional 60 credits of optional course units to bring your total to 120 credits.
