The Bachelor of Applied Management degree is designed for those with a drive to succeed in business, with a practical focus and a flexible structure. Learners choose from a range of majors and elective modules, gaining a broad range of business skills, specialist skills, and work experience in their chosen major.

You will have the opportunity to undertake collaborative real-world projects with students from other disciplines and with industry professionals. Majors in this degree include:

Human Resource Management

Operations and Production Management

Supply Chain Logistics

Strategic Management

Sales and Marketing

Innovation and Entrepreneurship

Retail Management

Event Management

This degree's practical focus increases employment opportunities when students graduate, with small class sizes helping to build strong one-on-one learning relationships with tutors. The flexible structure allows students to choose from a range of majors and a wide variety of elective modules. Students have the opportunity to study full or part-time to fit around family, life, and work commitments.

What you will learn

Students will study eight compulsory modules in their first year, giving them a strong understanding of business management before they specialise in their second and third years. All students in their final year of study will complete Applied Work Integrated Learning (AWIL). This gives students an opportunity to be placed in industry, gain valuable work experience, and complete an agreed piece of research, increasing employment chances when they graduate.

In their second year, students will study three modules specific to their major and a further three, which could either contribute to a second major or be elective modules based on the student's areas of interest. Students will also take the Applied Management and Research Methodology core modules.

Whether students choose one or two majors, if they study full-time, they will still complete their degree in three years.
