The BComHons (Business Management) is a highly demanding postgraduate degree. The main objective is to extend your knowledge of business, commerce and management theory, through academic research and practical application.

Our qualification provides you with advanced knowledge and skills in six compulsory modules. These modules are Strategic Management, Project Management, Organisational Behaviour, Finance for Non-specialists, Research Methodology and Research Dissertation. Within the structure of the two research subject areas, you will direct and drive your own independent research project that will culminate in a dissertation, under the guidance of a supervisor.

In Strategic Management, you will cover the strategic and change issues facing modern organisations. In Project Management, you will learn how to plan, organise and manage projects with an emphasis on finding new and innovative ways of doing so. In Organisational Behaviour, the focus is on what affects organisational effectiveness and behaviour. In Finance for Non- Specialists, you will learn how to use accounting statements and financial information to improve business decision-making.

What makes our honours degree unique is not only its academic rigour but its emphasis on real world application. As a BComHons (Business Management) graduate you will be very competitive in the job market because you will have gained advanced skills like critical, analytical and independent thinking, self-discipline, perseverance, finding innovative solutions to business issues, working in groups and communicating effectively.
