Why Study Abertay's BA (Hons) in Business Management?

What are the organisational challenges presented by shifting markets, ever-changing business models and emerging technologies? Gain a clear understanding of how complex organisations work by choosing a fascinating degree designed to give you a head start in the business world.

Whether your ambition is to start your own business or become a manager, advisor or business analyst, it’s crucial that you’re equipped with the underpinning knowledge and analytical skills to implement relevant business solutions.

This degree has been created with employability in mind. It prepares you for work by developing the knowledge you need and combines it with the skills required to meet the business and management needs of any organisation.

By going beyond the classroom and using extra-curricular activities such as international competitions like the IBM Business Challenge, you’ll be furnished with a greater understanding of the complexities of business management.

Even in your first year, you’ll be providing national organisations – Guide Dogs for the Blind and the Scottish Blood Transfusion Service, for instance – with solutions to contemporary and real-world business problems.
