Full time: 2 years

This course is not available to students classed as International for fees purposes.
The BA (Hons) Professional Business and Management Practice programme is suitable for those who are, or wish to become, professional managers. It is suitable for professional managers from all sectors: private, public and third sector and all sizes of organisation. The programme will benefit individuals who are at the start of their career, as well as existing managers who may already have developed practical experience, but who wish to develop their theoretical understanding of management skills further.
This course enables graduates to develop an analytical and evidence-based approach to key aspects of business and management in today's complex international context. Students will exercise initiative and personal responsibility in order to develop the ability to learn independently and to engage in critical enquiry and personal development.
Please note tuition fees for Home students may increase in subsequent years both for new and continuing students in line with an inflationary amount determined by government. Tuition fees for International students may increase in subsequent years both for new and continuing students.
Oxford Brookes University intends to maintain its fees for new and returning Home students at the maximum permitted level.
