Course Overview

Our broad-based business management programme gives you the expertise to understand the changing world of business on national and global levels.

Whether you want to work in large private organisations, the public sector or start up your own business, you can personalise your degree to acquire the analytical, quantitative, presentation and other transferable skills needed to succeed and stand out.

Compulsory modules in your first year cover the broad foundations of management, developing your understanding of the functions and processes involved in managing complex organisations and establishing your leadership skills. You will study across our full-spectrum management school, learning from world-leading researchers and experts to develop fundamental skills in areas including management theory and organisational behaviour, accounting and finance, marketing strategies, business analytics, entrepreneurial thinking, and economic environments.

At the end of your first year, you can choose to follow a general management programme or follow a specialist programme in entrepreneurship.

In your second year, diverse optional modules allow you to tailor your course to best match your interests and career aspirations. You can either pursue a broad understanding of topics or specialise in your chosen field, choosing from subjects such as operations and risk management, business start-up, entrepreneurial mindset, human resources, finance, marketing, and economics.

Your final year allows you to further customise your studies, taking in areas such as organisational change, international management, strategy and leadership, organisational ethics, and social contexts of entrepreneurship.

Our careers team, including a dedicated departmental careers coach, will work with you from day one to help with internships, placements and graduate employment. We will supply training in CV writing, interview assessment centres and telephone interviews, helping you with your future career ambitions.

Business Management is also available as a four-year programme with a year in industry or including a year studying abroad. It may be possible to switch to one of these courses after you start, subject to availability and to visa and other requirements.

Course Structure

Lancaster University offers a range of programmes, some of which follow a structured study programme, and others which offer the chance for you to devise a more flexible programme to complement your main specialism. We divide academic study into two sections - Part 1 (Year 1) and Part 2 (Year 2, 3 and sometimes 4). For most programmes Part 1 requires you to study 120 credits spread over at least three modules which, depending upon your programme, will be drawn from one, two or three different academic subjects. A higher degree of specialisation then develops in subsequent years. For more information about our teaching methods at Lancaster please visit our Teaching and Learning section.

The following courses do not offer modules outside of the subject area due to the structured nature of the programmes: Architecture, Law, Physics, Engineering, Medicine, Sports and Exercise Science, Biochemistry, Biology, Biomedicine and Biomedical Science.

Information contained on the website with respect to modules is correct at the time of publication, and the University will make every reasonable effort to offer modules as advertised. In some cases changes may be necessary and may result in some combinations being unavailable, for example as a result of student feedback, timetabling, Professional Statutory and Regulatory Bodies' (PSRB) requirements, staff changes and new research.
