This degree is a third year top-up, designed as a progression route for students who have successfully completed the FdA Business and Management, FdA Digital Marketing, FdSc Healthcare Practice or FdA Tourism, Hospitality and Events Management Foundation Degrees. However, progression from other suitable programmes will also be considered.
The programme will develop management and leadership skills, based strongly around decision-making, management development and strategic leadership, whilst addressing many major concepts including the values, principles and rules within the subject. This is in response to the needs of many local employers, with many organisations commenting that they expect to require more people with these vital skills over the next 3 to 5 years.
The course will develop you problem-solving, critical analysis and interpersonal skills, which are essential to succeed within management in any industry, providing you with a range of exciting job opportunities upon completion.
The course will be delivered through a variety of methods, including lectures, student-led seminars, research projects and analytical assessments. These methods have been chosen to develop you as both an independent and critical thinker. The course maintains a strong practical element by applying theoretical study to real-world cases, providing you with a grounding and understanding of working practice. You may also have the opportunity to benefit from guest speakers and educational trips as part of your learning. Assessments will include essays, seminar work, presentations, research projects and debates, due to the number of employers who require skills in these areas.

"When I attended an Open Evening at the University Centre South Devon I was initially unsure which direction I wanted to take. When I spoke to a tutor about my goals, strengths and weaknesses, they guided me to a degree in business and management and I never looked back."Charlotte McGowan
