What’s it like studying business management

Double Quote Icon

“I really like the modules on my course because you can apply what you learn to your personal life. My course helped me to reflect on how I used to do things, you realise that there is a better way. Now I feel like I have the confidence to put what I’m learning in to practice. Another thing that is great about this course is that all the teachers are experienced in what they are teaching. It’s not just reading books and theory, but you can actually learn how it applies to real life.”

Course Modules

Each module is worth 30 credits and both modules in Term 1 are mandatory.

Strategy and Leadership in Practice

In this module, we’ll explore the critical role that leadership plays in setting direction, formulating plans, and implementing strategic plans into organisations. You’ll have the opportunity to reflect on the principles and context that guide strategic leadership and examine how your own skills and behaviours can contribute to your success as a leader. Plus, we’ll equip you with a range of powerful concepts and tools to conduct a full strategic analysis of an organisation.

Critical Issues in International Business Management

Tackling some of the biggest and most pressing issues facing businesses on a global scale, you’ll learn how to identify and analyse critical management issues in this module. By adopting a broad range of perspectives, you will explore key issues and assess their impact on the sustainability of organisations. We’ll also equip you with the tools and knowledge that you need to diagnose common problems and develop creative solutions to these challenges, all while keeping the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals in mind.


Portfolio 60%
Simulation 40%

We use oral assessments, presentations, simulations, group, and individual, projects in addition to traditional assessment methods (examinations and coursework) so that you can explore and express your abilities in different ways. Assessments are not just a way of assessing whether something has been learned, but an opportunity to develop skills that will equip you in your future life and career.

Get CMI Accredited

When you graduate, you also receive a CMI Level 7 Diploma in Strategic Management and Leadership Practice and can apply for Chartered Manager status, the highest status that can be achieved in the management and leadership profession.

Personal tutoring

Our Personal Tutoring (PT) scheme provides additional guidance and support to students. Students have the opportunity to regularly meet with their peers and staff members in a less formal atmosphere than the classroom. PT includes a combination of group and one-to-one sessions in which students discuss their course, their experiences at Bloomsbury Institute, raise issues, ask questions and receive pastoral support.
