About this degree

Our Business Management with Entrepreneurship programme is more than just a degree. It is more ambitious than a traditional course and will give you the perfect balance of academic theory and practical experience.  It's for enterprising entrepreneurs, looking to set up their own business. You'll be given start up capital and a mentor to help you set up and run your own business, as part of your course.

Immerse yourself in the real world of business and learn from the very best.

It’s an amazing opportunity to immerse yourself in the real world of business, from within an international FTSE 100 company and learn from the very best, paying equal attention to the development of core “employability skills” and business knowledge. The course will enable you to develop attributes such as resilience, an appreciation of cultural diversity and its impact on commercial entities and the ability to make decisions, particularly in a global business environment.

You’ll be taught by our enterprising academics, many of whom are also business professionals and you’ll learn about business holistically from within a business – how to make maximum impact in a corporate environment with word and deed, by applying your developing knowledge to the solution of realistic business problems.

Although you’ll study the same core modules, our business management programmes are very different and are designed to build the skills needed to thrive in the related industry.

Top reasons to choose this degree

You'll graduate with a degree from the University of Kent. Known as the UK’s European University, the University of Kent is ranked 23rd in The Guardian University Guide 2017, it is also ranked 17th in the UK for research intensity out of 122 multi-faculty universities in the Research Excellence Framework (REF) and has the fifth equal highest score for overall student satisfaction in the National Student Survey (NSS) 2015, out of 115 multi-faculty institutions. It has also been voted one of the top five universities for teaching in the UK, according to the Times Higher Education (THE).

You'll learn from a combination of lectures, seminars and workshops, each designed to bring the world of business to life using real world examples from our industry partners. Developing a social enterprise in India, pitching your idea to a multinational company, speaking on a panel at a global conference and launching your own business! These are just a handful of unique industry experiences we’ve helped our students achieve. They are examples of how we can really help you stand out.

You’ll get the chance to set-up your own business! Students set-up and run their own business as part of the programme in the first second and third years with mentoring provided. You’ll get a chance to make a headstart on your business in your final year and you can start forward-planning your own business as part of the degree. You also get the chance to take part in consultancy projects and provide consultancy to other startups in your second year and write a business plan for their company.

You’ll get the opportunity to undertake an internship. It’s important to get real experience so that’s why we always try to find you an internship that relates to your preferred career once you graduate (subject to academic performance).

Our BA (Hons) Business Management programmes give you the option to take an Industry Placement, where you can take up to 15 months of a degree-related work placement, continuing with your studies alongside. The placement allows you to apply and develop your knowledge and skills by replicating tasks performed in the workplace, as well as discover new approaches to and elements of your disciplinary interests. This means you’ll start to develop some of the key competencies that employers value, such as collaboration, teamwork and self-awareness.  

We also have a business incubation space at the heart of the campus so you’ll meet entrepreneurs and professionals on a daily basis.

*Please note: It is not possible to apply for an accelerated programme; on completion of level 4, our full-time students have the opportunity to request to accelerate to a two-year programme.  The decision to allow this is based on the student's performance in their assessments in the programme so far and you will need to satisfy performance criteria in the first two terms to be considered for it.

My experience has been hands on, exciting and has pushed me to learn new things while also allowing me to begin to understand my key strengths. I would recommend Pearson College London to anyone who wants to break the mould and experience studying alongside some of the top Industry professionals
