Overview

Available as the first step towards either of our full undergraduate business degrees, but also beneficial as a standalone qualification, you will study topics such as:

  • establishing effective working teams
  • marketing fundamentals and the impact on consumers
  • the economic environment within which businesses operate
  • financial and management accounting

The  Business and Management programme at the University of Essex Online also includes an introduction to online learning and best practices for getting the most from your study opportunities. 

With engaging discussion forums, live Q&As and reflective journal entries, you will have a lot of ways to consolidate your learning and apply it to situations that arise within your own personal and professional life.

Your future

The skills and knowledge gained through this short course can be applied to virtually any career, as a good business acumen is an incredibly transferable skill. In particular, roles within finance, consultancy, human resource management, marketing, operations management and accounting are well-suited for our students, and of course general management positions.

If you wish to further improve your business skillset and knowledge, then progressing onto one of our full Bachelors degrees in management or marketing could prove to be a solid choice.
