The Business and Management Programme

Delivered by the globally recognised Aberdeen Business School, this suite of courses is suitable for those aspiring to achieve contemporary business knowledge and practical skills to build a rewarding career.

Aberdeen Business School was named Business School of the Year 2020 (Times Higher Education 2020 Awards) in recognition of our work-based learning, teaching and the innovative approaches of our staff to provide all our students with an outstanding business education.

Aberdeen Business School’s Business and Management Programme compromises six undergraduate degrees:

When studying one of our business and management degrees, you will undertake a common first year, providing you a strong foundation in the core business disciplines. From Year 2 the courses diverge according to the route you choose. This programme design allows you to make the most appropriate choice once you have been exposed to a full year of study in business and management. This means, if you wish, you will have the opportunity to move to an alternative course on the programme after completion of your first year.

In Year 3, you have a number of route choices available to you: 

  • Placement - A year-long paid placement with regional, national or international business and associated Evidencing Employability module
  • Connect to Business –Bespoke employability and enterprise projects with real industry partners plus a selection of modules covering management research skills
  • Taught route - Advanced taught modules according to the degree specialism, including a focus on management research skills, management consultancy in industry and enterprise development.

There are a number of other benefits to the business and management programme:

  • Opportunity to study abroad across Year 2 and 3
  • Business Ideas and Opportunities module in Year 2 enables you to work in multidisciplinary teams and develop your creative skills by building and refining your own business idea. You can then present this idea to industry partners and staff at our annual Trade Fair
  • Strong industry links ensure the courses are relevant and developed in line with industry demands
  • Industry involvement in the shape of scholarships, industry sponsored prizes, guest lectures and masterclasses.
  • CMI-LogoOur courses are accredited by the CMI and, in addition to achieving a degree, graduates of the course will also achieve a Level 5 CMI Certificate or Diploma in Management and Leadership (award depends on which course you complete).

We are continually evolving our course portfolio in response to global changes, therefore we have changed the name of this Programme from ‘The Management Programme’ to ‘The Business and Management Programme’. Some exit awards have also changed, individual course pages will provide more detail.
