4 INTRODUCTION Welcome to the degree in Business Administration and to the School of Management. This guide begins with an outline of the programme, so you know what to expect in each of your four years here. It then gives information about features of the programme, such as placements, the opportunity for international study, and prizes. This is followed by sections on the personal tutor system, student representation and other aspects of the programme to enable you to make full use of the facilities available as soon as possible. Please read this guide carefully and then retain it in a safe place since it contains information vital to your time on the degree. Please contact your Personal Tutor or the Director of Studies for the degree if you have any further queries about subjects covered in this guide. Overview of the Programme The programme is designed to enable students to study organisations and also to develop their ability to solve problems, make decisions, and work in teams in a variety of situations. Subjects studied are drawn from fields such as finance, marketing, economics, human resource management, international business and organisational behaviour. You will also undertake practical projects that allow you to apply the principles introduced in the taught sections of the programme. The programme begins with a year studying the major disciplines which are relevant to Business Administration and the context within which enterprises operate. You will also develop your experience of working independently, both through individual study and group assignments. The first placement takes place from the summer of the first year. In the second and third years the process of specialising and choosing begins, together with units that develop your ability to work on team projects. In the fourth year you will undertake a major piece of project work which involves a real-life business problem or issue. You will also be able to take a range of specialised topics which reflect your particular interests. Many graduates of the programme find it helpful in applying for a career in large businesses in one of the specialist functions covered on the programme: finance, human resources, marketing, etc. But future careers are not confined to this kind of conventional graduate employment scheme, and we have been delighted to see graduates going to smaller employers, into teaching, into the civil service or setting up their own businesses. Above all, this is an education, not a training programme, so the important thing is that you feel you are learning about organisations, about society and about yourself. An electronic copy of this handbook is available, with other important documents, in a section of Moodle devoted to BBA Information. Moodle can be accessed from the main University website and you should get into the habit of checking this, and your University account on a regular basis. Dr Rob Branston Director of Studies, BSc Business Administration September

5 UNIVERSITY-STUDENT PARTNERSHIP The University and the Students Union (SU) have a longstanding commitment and culture of working in partnership to deliver the highest quality student experience. The University- Student Partnership Statement has been developed collaboratively by the Students Union (SU) and University to set out the mutual commitment of staff and students and our collective expectations. Read the University-Student Partnership Statement: The statement sets out the shared principles that support this commitment, including working together in partnership to: make your transition to University life as smooth as possible; deliver and participate fully in the highest quality learning and teaching experience; recognise the important role that research plays in the University experience, ensuring there is a close working relationship between students and staff; maintain a strong community and environment which enable honest and constructive feedback to each other; consider the broad co-curricular opportunities available beyond your academic studies; encourage a continued University experience after graduation or completion of your studies through our Alumni network. 4

6 IMPORTANT DATES - TEACHING AND ASSESSMENT CALENDAR A timetable will be available each semester giving details of lectures, seminars and workshops for the whole of your year group. You will receive paper timetables in Year 1, thereafter the timetables will be available on SAMIS. Usually, the first session for each unit will be the lecture, at which the role of tutorials or seminars will be explained. You are expected to attend all lectures for your units and your allotted tutorials and seminars. Unauthorised absences can lead to a suspension of your registration. We are able to issue you with individual ( personal ) timetables for Semester 1 and Semester 2 of the first year. We cannot do this for years 2-4 because of the variety of option choices.

7 How do I find where things are? Wessex House 1 Lecture Theatre (WH1LT) some classes here. The University of Bath Campus 3 West North (3WN) can only be reached by going round the outside of 1 West or 9 West. The Library focal point of the University. School of Management 8 West. Reception on ground floor. Staff offices on levels 3 and 4. East Building (EB) - used for a lot of BBA lectures. 4 East lectures in here too. Wessex House Junior Common Room/student work space, placements offices, pigeonholes and notice boards on the ground floor. Some staff offices on floor 9 (there is a lift!). 2W University Hall. Another place with a lot of BBA lectures. Generally the Library is the central focus of the University. Any W building is West of the Library. Any E building is East of the Library. The higher the number, the further from the library. The above map indicates where some of the halls with non-standard names are located. 6

8 THE SCHOOL OF MANAGEMENT Located principally in the 8 West Building. Some lectures will take place in the largest lecture theatres on campus. Most staff offices are in 8 West, although some are on levels 8 and 9 of Wessex House. SCHOOL OF MANAGEMENT PERSONNEL With more than 100 staff, the School of Management is one of the largest departments in the University. During your first year you will meet only a proportion of the staff; others you will get to know in later years of the programme. You will come into contact with your Personal Tutor, first year teaching staff, the Director of Studies and the team of people responsible for directing, supporting and administering the degree. This section gives details of the key staff and explains how they can be contacted. School policy operates within a framework set by the University, and is determined by the Board of Studies, Director of Studies and all staff. Your Director of Studies is Dr Rob Branston. Professor Veronica Hope Hailey is the Dean of the School and is supported by the Executive Board. Professor Nick Kinnie is Associate Dean for Undergraduate Taught Students and takes overall responsibility for undergraduate programmes in which the school is involved. Gurprite Lehal heads the placements office.

9 KEY SUPPORT STAFF We select our students for this course with care and believe that they will succeed. We do not, however, leave this to chance and an important part of our support for students is provided by the system of personal tutors. The tutorial system provides students with a member of staff who acts as their personal tutor. It offers an important and useful link between the student and the University. There are however, other support mechanisms within the school. Director of Studies The Director of Studies for the degree is Dr Rob Branston (see personnel table above for office and address). The Director of Studies is responsible for the operation of the programme and liaises with the Associate Dean for Undergraduate Taught Students on wider issues. Associate Dean for Undergraduate Taught Students Professor Nick Kinnie is the Associate Dean for Undergraduate Taught Students, responsible for the strategic overview and development of undergraduate programmes across the School. Because the School does not have the same Department/Faculty structure as the rest of the University, the Associate Dean undertakes a number of functions that would normally be given to a Head of Department. In particular, he deals with formal complaints which are submitted through the procedure outlined at Student Experience Officer The Student Experience Officer, Eliza Shaw, offers a confidential support and advice service for students in the School of Management. She can help you with personal and academic issues, providing a sympathetic ear, specific advice, more solution-focused coaching or referral, as necessary. Personal Tutor A personal tutor is assigned to all students; they will help you to get the best out of your university experience and can guide you to sources of expert help whether on academic progress or personal/welfare issues when or as you may need it. You are responsible for attending the scheduled meetings with your personal tutor and letting them know in advance if you cannot attend. Remember that if you do not get to know your tutor, they will be unable to provide you later with a reference for your career. If you fail on several occasions to make contact with your tutor as expected, this will be reported to your Director of Studies. You should expect to meet with your personal tutor on three occasions in your first semester after entry to University and you will be offered at least one meeting thereafter per semester. You can request a personal, one-to-one meeting at any time. Normally you will retain the same personal tutor throughout the duration of the course so that there will be one person whom you get to know especially well and who will know you well. This is useful in all sorts of ways, apart from the obvious one of helping you to sort out problems and to take full advantage of opportunities when things are going well. 8

10 The personal tutor system operates under University Guidelines which we in the School of Management support fully. To work properly, however, it requires not just adherence to rules but our commitment to the spirit of it and your determination to use it to the full. Your tutor should see you regularly to enquire about progress and to give general encouragement. You, in your turn, should inform your tutor as to what is happening to you. He or she will be interested to know, for example, how you are keeping up with assignment schedules, how you are progressing with arranging your placement, your later year option choices and what difficulties, such as illness, might have affected your studies. It is particularly important for tutors and tutees to meet at change-over points e.g. when you are going on placement, changing years, and at the end of semester. The use that is made of the tutorial relationship varies widely, according to the needs of the tutee and the personalities and preferred working methods of the tutor and tutee. The student and member of staff have a joint responsibility to ensure the tutorial system works well. Students need to accept that tutors have many other duties in addition to tutoring them, and that they may not always be instantly available. Details of your personal tutor and their room number will be given to you separately. Contact details for all members of staff can be found from the Person Finder link on the University web site: Personal Tutor Changes There are two ways in which you can find another tutor if your personal tutor leaves. Normally the School Administration will allocate another personal tutor. Alternatively, you can ask another member of the academic staff if they are willing to act as your personal tutor and then inform the Director of Studies. Very occasionally, either or both parties may think that a different tutor would be more helpful for a student. In that case, the person who wants to make the change should talk to the Director of Studies. CONTACTING STAFF AND STUDENTS You will soon discover that academic staff are not in their offices every day of the working week because of research and other commitments. You are therefore advised to make appointments with staff in order to save yourself time. Staff are most easily contacted via but paper messages may be left at 8 West Reception. Staff will also keep regular office hours for direct contact: a section in Moodle allows all students access to this information. Communication with other students may be via or the student pigeon holes located on the ground floor of Wessex House (by Junior Common Room). Incoming mail will also be placed here and you are advised to check these pigeon holes frequently. Please do not leave your unwanted mail in the pigeon holes but ensure you dispose of it, especially prior to going away on placement and vacations. 9

11 WHAT TO DO IF YOU HAVE A PROBLEM Hopefully your time at Bath will be free from any issues that impede your studies. However, we realise that many people are affected by a range of issues. It is important that you know who to contact and what to do when something unexpected does happen or a problem arises, then we can help you to best deal with it and complete your studies. We always treat such issues confidentially. Temporary or one-off issues causing an effect on studies are called Mitigating Circumstances - you can find more information on page 40 of this Handbook and on If you are having a problem adjusting to life at University and/or you are struggling to adjust to the amount of work that is required University is a big life change from secondary education. You are given far greater freedom to organise your own working pattern and life but this can bring problems. If you are having problems within your hall of residence you should contact your Resident Tutor. If you are having problems with the academic side of the programme you should contact your Personal Tutor (a member of the academic staff who will act as a main contact for you while you are at University) If you would like someone to talk to about your progress or experience at any time you should contact your personal tutor or the student experience officer (Eliza Shaw We have a student mentoring system which may be able to help you. If you are interested in this please contact Eliza Shaw (contact details as above). If you have to be away from campus during term time Students are required to be on campus for the duration of the taught term and you should not plan to be away at any point. If you do have to leave the campus (for instance, for a family emergency) you must seek permission first, by contacting the programme administrator (Jane Hunt If you are absent owing to illness for more than 3 days, you should also inform your programme administrator. Depending on the length, timing or nature of any absence, you may either wish to request extensions on academic assignments, or to complete an IMC (Individual Mitigating Circumstances) form (see below). When you return you should also contact your lecturers and ask them for any guidance on work you have missed. All students should attend their programme regularly and some activities may be subject to attendance monitoring. Full guidelines at: If you are unwell or something affects your ability to complete coursework on a oneoff basis If you expect you will be unable to fully contribute or complete a piece of work by the deadline you should: 1. Contact your personal tutor and/or the student experience officer who will advise you on the best course of action and appropriateness in asking for an extension. It may sometimes be appropriate to complete an individual mitigating circumstances form instead, but an extension will normally resolve a coursework deadline issue. 2. To formally request an extension on the deadline, complete an Extension Request Form, available from School of Management main office or electronically at 10

12 3. Alongside the form you must also submit appropriate documentation as evidence, for example a doctor s note if you are ill (these are available from the University Medical Centre but not the NHS Healthcare Centre). 4. The completed form should be returned to the School of Management main office in hard copy (with appropriate evidence). One form must be submitted for each piece of coursework you are requesting an extension for. An extension will not automatically be granted and you should not assume you have extra time until the new deadline is communicated to you by the Director of Studies. Please note issues relating to the loss of data or computer problems will generally not be considered grounds for an extension as it is your responsibility to ensure appropriate back-ups are made. If you are unwell or something affects your ability to complete an examination on a one-off basis If you expect you will be unwell or affected by issues that prevent you from fully preparing, contributing or completing an exam, you should: 1. Discuss the situation with your personal tutor or the student experience officer who can provide guidance to you in preparation and recommend what action to take next. 2. Fill in an individual mitigating circumstances (IMC) form - available from the School of Management main office, or you can access one electronically at - and return it to the School of Management main office before the examination takes place. 3. Alongside the form you must also submit appropriate documentation as evidence, for example a doctor s note if you have been ill (these are available from the University Medical Centre but not the NHS Healthcare Centre). 4. If you are unable to do so in advance, the form must be returned to us within 3 working days after the examination. 5. Note: a form may be completed for each examination or per examination period. If you have a long term or recurrent problem that will affect your performance over a period of several months (or longer) across a range of subjects If the issue is long term or recurrent you should: 1. Speak to your personal tutor who can help you in the first instance 2. Request a meeting with the Director of Studies (Dr Rob Branston, and/or the student experience officer (Eliza Shaw to discuss the situation and how we can help you best continue your studies 3. Inform the programme administrator (Jane Hunt We are here to help you complete the course and are always willing to support our students in any way we can. Help and advice on dealing with long term problems can also be gained from the University Disability Centre (see and page 31 of this Handbook. If you are having problems working in a group or with your colleagues You should discuss this with the relevant unit lecturer or your personal tutor. If you fail a piece of coursework or examination Your personal tutor is available to help you discuss your revision and examination practices. If you have to re-take an examination, the primary contact is the lecturer who set the assessment. They can review your coursework or exam and talk through it with you to highlight where you need to improve your work (also Pages 35/36 of this Handbook). 11

13 YOUR PROGRAMME STRUCTURE Please refer to Programme Description on pages for complete listings Year 1 The first year is divided into two semesters of fifteen weeks each. Each semester comprises 5 units of study. The objective is to give you a strong foundation of knowledge of Business as an academic discipline to support your studies at later stages. You will also begin preparation for the placements, which will require you to attend sessions on applications and practising interviews. You must take units with a minimum value of 60 credits over the year. Year 1 comprises a number of core units which are all mandatory (choice of units begins in year 2). Year 1 core units are as follows: a summary of each unit can be found at Semester 1 MN10001 People and Organisations 1 6 Credits MN10476 Accounting for Managers 6 Credits MN10103 Business Economics 1 6 Credits MA10213 Business Data Analysis 6 Credits Semester 2 MA10214 Quantitative Methods 6 Credits MN10005 People and Organisations 2 6 Credits MN10006 Business Economics 2 6 Credits MN10311 Corporate Finance and Investment Appraisal 6 Credits In addition, you will take over both semesters: All year units MN10442 Introduction to Business Law and 6 credits MN10443 Business and Society 6 Credits OR MN10529 Law in Context and 6 credits EL10703 EL10704 Academic Writing for Management and Academic Communication Skills for Management Two units of 3 credits What s the difference between the Business in Society/Business Law stream and the Law in Context/Academic Writing stream? Business in Society is a unit which comprises group work on a business issue. Introduction to Business Law is a detailed introduction to English law, taught by the law staff, led by Janet Wilson-Ward. In the past, we found that a proportion of overseas students did not find this unit suitable. Therefore, the law staff created an alternative unit, Law in Context. This unit addresses less detailed issues across legal systems from different countries. It is paired with units that will improve students use of English Language in a business context. We have initially timetabled you in one or the other stream, based on what we know of your previous qualifications. The Academic and Professional Communications Skills Programme This is a short series of workshop-style lectures that takes place in addition to the above core units. It will help you to ensure that you are writing appropriately in your reports, essays and s. The course is tailored to your specific degree programme, and will include analysis of assessment criteria and assignment titles for Semester 1, using samples of marked work with tutor feedback. 12

14 Additional Units You may choose to take an additional unit, including Foreign Languages and English Language skills units. These are taken on an extra-curricular basis. They do not count towards your year average, but will be shown on your transcript. All students at Bath are permitted to take 6 credits of additional units per year at no extra cost. New students are given information about this in Induction Week but you can find out more on the following websites and on pages 22 and 24 of this Handbook. Foreign Languages: English Language Support: Year 2 After the first placement, you will return to the campus for the second semester. Your studies will comprise the Research Project unit and four options from a range of subjects (see section below on Option Choices). Year 3 The first semester of year 3 requires you to take four more options plus the Action Project. If you want to apply for Academic Exchange, the application will need to be put in during November. You will also prepare for the second placement, which takes place between February and September. Year 4 You will take the Final Year Project over the whole academic year, even if you are on academic exchange. You will also take 8 optional units (or 4 optional units plus the equivalent during the first semester at the partner institution if you are on academic exchange). For further information on the above please see the following pages: Option choices See below Placements Pages 20/21 Projects Page 22 Academic Exchange Page 23 UNITS - CORE AND OPTIONAL The Programme Description on pages lists the core and optional units available to students on the BSc Business Administration programme. It is correct at the time of writing, but may change from time to time owing to staff movements into and out of the School and changes in staff responsibilities and interests. The accurate list and description of all programme units at any time is always held on line at Choosing Optional Units Each year in mid to late April you will be asked to register option choices for the following academic year (both semesters). Registration for option choices is through the SAMIS information system. 13

15 You may also request to take a unit offered by other Departments in the University in place of an option choice, on application to the Director of Studies. In order to support you further in the process of choosing units, the School maintains a section in Moodle called Management Undergraduate Options. This provides information about each unit, beyond what is available in the official unit catalogues. This usually includes week-by-week outlines of subject matter, recommended reading and previous coursework assignments. Please bear in mind that this information may not always be complete because it relies on members of staff submitting extra documentation. All units at higher levels have prerequisites i.e. lower-level units which you must have completed in order to be equipped to take them. For example, MN30315 Advanced Financial Accounting requires you to have taken MN20018 Financial Accounting and Reporting in year 2. All of the prerequisites are in the Unit Catalogue and in the Moodle Management Undergraduate Options section. In addition, for BBA students there is a specific Moodle information section just for the degree, BBA Information, which contains a set of subject maps, which lay out the prerequisite structure for each of the main subject areas. PRIZES The School awards a number of prizes each year in recognition of academic achievement. These may be for excellence in a particular unit, a group of related units within a subject area or for the programme as a whole. The prizes offered may change from year to year - please contact your Director of Studies for details of the awards currently offered. PROFESSIONAL EXEMPTIONS BBA graduates can aim for exemptions from the examinations of some professional bodies, depending on their choice of options. The details are included in the Moodle section Management Undergraduate Options, together with links to the relevant websites. Current exemptions are for professional bodies in Accountancy and Marketing. 14
