Learning and assessment
This interdisciplinary degree includes modules on business and management theory and practice, accounting, and professional practice, as well as business relevant areas of law such as contract, employment and corporate law. At the same time, you will take modules in which the interplay between business and law are explored, including tort for business, where principles of the law of tort are interwoven with the activities of running a business.
After you graduate
Students on this programme can progress to a range of careers in business or not- for-profit organisations, and will be able to demonstrate an understanding of key legal principles and practice. Employers across a range of industries place considerable value on the problem-solving and adaptability competencies that students on interdisciplinary programmes tend to develop, as a direct result of their experience learning across two disciplines.
Throughout this course, there is a strong emphasis on the links we have with industry. For instance, students will complete modules which will host a variety of guest speakers. Previous guest speakers have come from businesses such as BMW, Samsung and Glaxo Smith Kline.
You will have the opportunity to attend careers events hosted by both the School of Law and the Business School.
Recent employers of Business School graduates include Caterpillar, Disney, Harley Davidson and IBM.
