Course Overview

What will I study?

The Company Environment, Business Decision Making, Leadership and Management, and Strategic Management are just a few of the subjects you'll study. You'll also have the ability to create a business plan and finish a research project (dissertation). You will also work on improving your academic and personal skills.
