The online BSc Business and Management programme prepares you to navigate and analyse issues in international management. Your studies will equip you with an applied understanding of business and management, a strong foundation in the social sciences and an analytical approach to problem solving.

Programme Structure

With academic direction from leading faculty at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) – ranked #2 globally in Social Sciences and Management – this programme explores three core areas: organisations, the external environment and management.

Focus on quantitative skills.
Your introductory courses will help you develop essential skills in mathematics, economics, accounting and statistics. They will also address the global context of business and management.

Develop an applied understanding.
Your choice of intermediate courses will explore a range of more specialised management topics – from operations to finance to information systems – and give you a chance to hone your analytical reasoning abilities.

Take a deep dive into key topics.
Your advanced courses will give you the chance to hone your strategic thinking and decision-making skills and explore specialised areas of management, like human resources and marketing.
