The world of business is vast and influences almost every aspect of our lives. There are businesses in every sector, in every region, in every service you can think of. So, with that many opportunities, how do you work out exactly what area of business you want to specialise in? Well, that’s where this course can help.
The Intermediate Business programme will enable you take your first steps towards a career in the business world. You’ll learn essential skills such as business enterprise, project management, selling and promoting a brand, and financial awareness.
The programme has been designed to inspire and enthuse students to consider a career in the Business sector and to develop any existing knowledge and understanding of business, forming the fundamental knowledge and understanding of business principles, resulting in the achievement of a nationally recognised qualification. You might love the blend of creativity and strategy that marketing offers. Maybe you’d prefer to focus on the numbers and want to work in accounting. Or perhaps you’re a people person and want to move into management or human resources. Whatever you’re passionate about, we’ll teach you the skills you need for a long and successful career.
You will learn through a variety of practical activities and theory sessions, and upon completion may further develop your business knowledge by progressing to study Level 3 Advanced Business at South Devon College.
"I previously worked in the automotive industry, but was always very creative and was considering a career change, potentially working in marketing roles with digital technologies. I've had a really good experience at the UCSD; the facilities and resources are excellent, and the support of the tutors is invaluable. I've been able to work on live projects set by employers, such as Living Coasts, which has been incredibly beneficial. I've been able to see the business and commercial aspect of work, and it's been a chance to apply my knowledge and develop my vocational skills. When I complete my Foundation Degree I intend to enter employment for 2 to 3 years, working in web or graphic design, before then completing a top-up year and returning to industry."Ben Young
