Business Management and Geography
The course combines study of the fundamentals of both subjects with the opportunity to focus on individual areas of interest through specialist option modules. Students will also develop their employability and personal self-awareness.
An integral part of the programme is the opportunity to undertake a work placement, and in the final year of study, students have the opportunity to complete an interdisciplinary dissertation. Geographical fieldwork is undertaken locally in the first year, and on a residential trip (typically overseas) in the second year of the programme.
Graduates of this course will have a broad and interdisciplinary education, equipping them for a wide range of careers, combining knowledge of the practices of business and management, with geographical understanding of contemporary world issues such as environmental change, globalisation, urbanisation, and sustainability.

Learning and assessment
Learning takes place through a variety of means and modes of delivery, including online, and in lectures, seminars, workshops, case studies, problem-solving activities and fieldwork.
In Year 1 your core modules introduce you to key elements of business, management and both human and physical geography, in preparation for more specialised study in years 2 and 3.
In Years 2 and 3 you can specialise further in the areas that interest you most and continue to develop your employability skills. In your final year, you will take both the business and management synoptic - which allows you to focus deeply on an area of personal interest and develops key employment skills - and either an interdisciplinary or geography dissertation. You also have a range of option modules to tailor your studies to reflect your interests or aspirations.

A degree in Business Management and Geography from Oxford Brookes will equip you with a very wide range of skills with which to enter further study or future employment.
This course will enable you to pursue a career in environmental management, conservation, leisure and tourism, consultancy, geography teaching, or secure a position in a range of settings, such as a multinational business, a major charity, education, health care or government, nationally or internationally. Many of our students go on to graduate training schemes in international companies such as Aldi, AC Nielsen, IBM, Virgin Mobile, Intel, Yell Ltd, O2 and Dell.
