|Degree:||Bachelor of Science (Honours) (BSc (Hons))|
Our Management with a Year in Industry degree aims to develop a new kind of business professional for the 21st century, as alive to their social responsibilities to the community as to the needs of their investors, shareholders and employers.
Kent Business School (KBS) is a leading business school accredited by The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AASCB). This places KBS within the top institutions globally for business degrees, with only 5% of the world’s business schools.
As a student at Kent Business School, you also have the opportunity to gain the Chartered Management Institute’s (CMI) Level 5 Professional Certificate in Management and Leadership alongside your degree.
The programme develops your leadership skills in relation to decision-making, problem-solving, teamworking, negotiation and employee performance management. It produces graduates who can pursue operational line management positions in a range of diverse organisations, including public, private and non-profit, as a stepping stone to senior management positions.
You gain the skills and knowledge essential for managing key areas of organisations, including accounting, human resources, quantitative methods, marketing, strategy and operations. You also develop an understanding of the role and interrelationship between strategic management, human resource management and operations management.
Graduates of the Management BSc have an appreciation of the global challenges facing managers from both an operational and a strategic perspective, and are sensitive to the need for business ethics and corporate social responsibility to be an integral part of management policy and practice.
The year in industry on this programme has two routes. You can find a work placement within an organisation, or if you are interested in starting your own business, spend the year in self-employment developing your business ideas.
It is possible to take this programme without the addition of a Year in Industry. See Management. Our Management programme is also available as a joint honours degree with, for example, Economics or a modern European language.
