Course Overview

Are you keen to understand how businesses and managers operate? But are as yet undecided about studying abroad, working for a year in industry or your future career? This flexible degree offers the rare chance to build your studies as you go and play to your strengths.

As a Business Management student, you study with every department within the Management School. Your degree can be three or four years long depending on your choices. You can pick modules that use your favoured assessment method, or that build on your flair for numeracy or creativity. We focus on creating self-confidence and improving your skills and knowledge base.

All first-year students study Financial Management, Management and Business Statistics. You also choose a specialism from Economics, Marketing, and Entrepreneurship or a language if you wish.

The second year explores data analysis and strategic management. You also specialise in two subjects such as entrepreneurship, economics, operations management, marketing and organisational psychology. This continues into your third year. Here you choose options while studying our core subjects of leadership, business and management.

We want to make our graduates as marketable as possible to potential employers. Every student has access to a specialist Business Management Careers Coach and attends sessions on CVs and teamwork, including an away day. Building on your employability development plan in your second year means there is time to identify and fill gaps before you start applying for jobs.

Whether you want to work for a hotel chain, continue your studies or train in an area such as accountancy, this degree keeps your options open.

  • Course Structure

    Course Structure

    Many of Lancaster's degree programmes are flexible, offering students the opportunity to cover a wide selection of subject areas to complement their main specialism. You will be able to study a range of modules, some examples of which are listed below.

    Year 1

      Core

      Optional

    Year 2

      Core

    Year 3

    Module information for this year is not currently available.

    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. 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 visit our Teaching and Learning section.

    Information contained on the website with respect to modules is correct at the time of publication, but changes may be necessary, for example as a result of student feedback, Professional Statutory and Regulatory Bodies' (PSRB) requirements, staff changes, and new research.
