The BSc Business Management with Corporate Law is an ideal degree for ambitious individuals wishing to pursue a wide range of business careers which combine legal expertise including HR, compliance, governance, management, and business.
The programme will enable you to explore and develop skills in all key business disciplines, with an additional focus on business law.
The first year of the course will explore the foundation elements of business management. Years Two and Three will then examine these areas in greater depth together with law modules. Some of these Law modules will be shared with LLB students. Throughout the course you’ll get to develop transferable skills such as research, presentation, critical analysis, problem solving, team work and entrepreneurship.
You will be equipped with the knowledge and expertise required to add immediate value to any business organisation. Graduates looking to continue their studies with a postgraduate course may be interested in the following ULBS courses:
Our degrees are built around preparing you for the workplace and with that in mind, we encourage students to select the option to undertake a placement year.
Taking place in the 3rd year of a 4-year degree, you’ll have the opportunity to find paid work, putting the learning of your first 2 years into practice to develop and enhance real world skills to launch your career.
So how does it work?
Whilst you will be responsible for finding your own placement, our dedicated Business Employability Team will be on hand to support you through the process. The hours per week that you work will be determined by your placement organisation, however, expect it to be between 18 hours and 35 hours per week for a minimum of 30 weeks. If you’re not successful in securing a placement then not to worry - you’ll simply transfer to a non-placement version of your course. There is no assessment connected to the placement year, though you will be required to deliver a presentation summarising your learning and experience.
Our placement year courses are open to everyone including international students, who can contact our International office for specific advice and guidance.
See Placement Year FAQs for further details.
You can choose to take an additional Foundation Year before you start this course. This introductory year focuses on developing the key skills required to study at degree level and covers the same modules across all business and law courses. The modules covered will initially enhance your communications skills, digital and information literacy and ability to think critically. In addition, modules covering the Foundations of Business Management, Law, and Social Sciences will not only support your progression onto your business degree, but also give you an introduction to other disciplines. You then have the added flexibility of switching your degree programme if another discipline captures your interest, subject to availability and entry requirements.
Entry requirements for the Foundation Year are different than for our three year degrees. For full details, check our Entry Requirements page.
Students have the option to undertake a paid Placement Year with a business employer.
