JACS Code(s) N200 Programme specification last updated August 2015

4 SECTION TWO: OVERVIEW AND PROGRAMME AIMS OVERVIEW This programme is designed for students with an interest in business, who wish to gain a thorough grounding in all business disciplines rather than specialise in one particular area. Students choosing the BA Business Management tend to aspire to a corporate career, often in larger companies. A graduate with a BA Business Management should be very well placed to enter almost any sphere of the business world. There is particular emphasis on real life business situations as these are essentially practical degrees. Graduates from this programme of study should be etremely employable. The involvement of the Chartered Management Institute in the design, accreditation and delivery of the programmes should give students a leading edge over others studying the same or similar degrees at benchmark institutions. The dual accreditation should make their CV stand out from the crowd and appeal to prospective employers. The BA Business Management programme is largely prescriptive in nature with relatively few options. This is a direct consequence of matching of modules with the CMI Diploma to achieve dual accreditation for those students who successfully complete all three taught years of the Programme PROGRAMME AIMS The programme aims for each programme within the Undergraduate Business Programme scheme consist of generic aims common to all programmes, which are then supplemented by programme specific aims. The generic aims have been derived from the three purposes of business and management programmes listed in the QAA Subject benchmark statements: General Business and Management. The benchmarks, taken from the QAA document are: Study of organizations, their management and the changing eternal environment in which they operate Preparation for and development of a career in business and management Enhancement of lifelong learning skills and personal development to contribute to society at large. Generic aims for the generic business programmes derived from these three core guidelines are: To prepare a student for a career in a rapidly changing business and social environment. To provide a challenging, integrated programme of study that equips students with a sound general knowledge of organisations, their management and the global environments in which they operate. To progressively develop cognitive, intellectual and practical skills within a relevant business and management contet. To offer students an opportunity for work based learning within an appropriate business environment. To progressively develop transferable graduate skills as a foundation for lifelong learning. To develop personal, self-learning and team-working skills necessary for successful employment in business and management.

5 The Business Management degree offers a broad business background with the opportunity to pursue some element of specialisation in the latter stages. The degree has been developed in close consultation with the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) and will be one of the very few undergraduate courses in the UK offering a dual award. Without studying any additional modules, students completing all three taught years of the BA Business Management will also receive a Level 5 CMI Diploma in Management and Leadership. Students will benefit from involvement with the CMI and prominent employers who will provide guest lecturers, visits, provision of case studies, attendance at local CMI events and the consequent opportunities for networking. The linkage of academic discipline to practical scenarios will make the programme vocationally relevant and enhance student employability. Skills modules have been introduced at each level of study as well as integrative modules which use business games, case studies or actual work eperience. The aim is to produce a well rounded graduate who will be eminently employable. The linkage of academic discipline to practical scenarios will make the programme vocationally relevant and enhance student employability. Those without current or previous work eperience will not be disadvantaged as the integrative modules at all levels are intended to unite all business disciplines in as realistic a scenario as possible. It is epected that all student will undertake a work placement in the third year of study. This may be paid or unpaid. The benefits of placements in terms of vastly improved employability and skills advancement are well documented. In addition, students who have undertaken a work placement are much more likely to obtain a higher classification of honours degree. As business is essentially a practical subject, the additional skills acquired during a work placement will greatly enhance the learning eperience in the final year of study. All degrees are to be offered as a four-year sandwich option, but those not wishing to take a work placement may opt out of the placement year and study on three-year full time basis. In addition, those students wishing to take longer to acquire a degree may study on a part-time basis. This approach maimises student choice and is sufficiently fleible to cater for changes in demand following the imposition of higher fees. Students with a Higher National Diploma, or equivalent, in a related business discipline may undertake the final year of study on a full-time, part-time, or evening only basis. This has proved to be a very popular mode of study for numerous students in full time work over recent years. Such students, however, will not receive the CMI Diploma.

9 SECTION FOUR: PROGRAMME STRUCTURE Structure and Curriculum The programmes are studied on either a full-time or part-time basis. The modules that make up the programme have particular importance in your preparation for the world of work. We have chosen the modules so that the programme outcomes are developed. You will see that there is also a small range of options to match your own study need and interests. What we term a Curriculum Map is appended to this programme specification so you can see how the programme outcomes and modules interrelate (See Appendi 1). Students who do not complete the final stage may receive a Certificate of Higher Education (Level 4), Diploma in Higher Education (Levels 4 and 5) or a Bachelor degree without honours (Levels 4 and 5 and 60 credits at Level 6). A work placement is available between Phases 2 and 3.It is epected that all students will undertake the period of work placement unless they specifically opt out of the process. The placement will be for a minimum duration of nine months, during which time the student will be allocated a visiting academic tutor and have frequent contact with their Placements Officer. Obtaining a placement is a competitive process which requires a good deal of time and dedication on the behalf of the student. However, we will support you in this process largely via the second year module Employability and Personal Development. During this module, you will have etensive input from academics with epertise in employability as well as out award winning Careers Department and our dedicated Placements Officer. Students will be required to meet with their personal tutor on a frequent basis to review their placement applications and discuss personal career goals. Students may choose to undertake the DPP programme or enrol `onto the Level 6 module Developing Employability from the Placement Eperience which assesses the knowledge and eperience gained during the Placement. Students studying the Programme at Derby will be required to take a zero Credit module in Professional Development at Each Stage. This is to support their Personal Development Planning and enhance their employability.

However, those students wishing to restrict their attendance to either two evenings a

13 week, or one afternoon and evening, will find they have a very limited range of modules available. Personal Development Planning Personal Development Planning (PDP) is a term used to describe the means by which students can monitor, build and reflect upon their personal development (Dearing Report recommendation 20). The University is fully committed to helping students to become independent, autonomous learners, aware of their own development. The integration of Personal Development Planning into the programme is therefore regarded as an essential requirement towards supporting student centred learning. It is proposed that PDP be embedded within the programmes at all levels. Introduction to PDP will begin during induction, to be supported by the Personal Tutor system and the Developing Personal Leadership module at phase 1. Students will be encouraged to maintain copy of their PDP. It is envisaged that the copy will form the basis for discussions during personal tutorial meetings. At Phase 2 the PDP will be further considered within the Employability and Personal Development module. There will be etensive consultation with personal tutors when applying for placement opportunities. Those few students who opt out of the placement year will discuss their career aspirations with their personal tutors and look at alternative ways to enhance their employability. At all years, personal tutors will be the student s primary contact to discuss their academic and general personal development. This will be supported for students studying the Programme at Derby by taking the zero Credit modules in Professional Development at Each Stage. SECTION FIVE: PROGRAMME DELIVERY Learning and Teaching Methods At Phase one: Guest lectures and case study scenarios will be used to supplement tutor support in Marketing Fundamentals and Developing Personal Leadership. Practical business and study skills are to be developed by the interactive seminar programme and computer laboratory based tutorials in modules such as and Markets, Prices and Strategy, in addition to the practical underpinning provided by Developing Personal Leadership The HRM skills necessary to run a successful business will be developed by Understanding People in Organisations which involves a group presentation based around a case study scenario. Academic writing skills will be developed in the skills module Self directed study is necessary for all modules and this will develop skills of self reliance and time management. The use of quantitative and financial data in a business contet will underpin key modules at level 4

14 All modules will encourage the development and application of study skills techniques and the practical application of theory to practice. At Phase two: All modules contribute to the achievement of stage 2 outcomes with the emphasis on student centred seminars and directed reading building upon the theory delivered in lectures. A widely used problem solving and case study approach, both for tutorial discussion and in assessment, develops practical business skills and personal confidence Students are encouraged to identify business and employment opportunities and to develop the skills which will enable them to avail themselves of these opportunities (e.g. Employability and Personal Development). Key business skills development pervades all modules at level 5, for eample, Macro economics tutorials develop skills of information handling, research and critical evaluation. The Employability and Personal Development module uses practical eperience and personal reflection to develop career management skills and prepare students for the optional work placement at the end of the year. Contemporary and pervasive issues are developed in Ethics and Social Responsibility with its emphasis on encouraging students to adopt a critically reflective perspective of business and its role in society. Those students who undertake a placement will be able to apply the knowledge and skills, gained at Phases 1 and 2, during this Placement Period and reflect on their eperiences through the Developing Employability Through the Placement Eperience module. At Phase three: By the final year students are epected to have developed self study skills and an ability to eamine a business problem as a whole rather than a series of disciplines. All core modules adopt this holistic approach to evaluation and study. Whilst knowledge outcome 2 is specifically dealt with in Issues in Global Business and Strategic Concepts, students are epected to adopt a strategic approach to all studies at this level. Issues in Global Business and Strategic Concepts eamines business in a global contet in line with contemporary and pervasive issues (outcome 4). The use of some two hour seminar slots rather than a traditional lecture / seminar approach will encourage discussion, group work and deeper analysis. The Principles and Practice of Leadership and Management module enables students to reflect upon and plan the development of their own leadership skills (outcome 5). Intellectual skills are developed through the involvement of students in the teaching and learning methods outlined in the Knowledge and Understanding section. All modules involve the discussion and application of underlying concepts. Students will be epected to produce their ideas in a variety of formats. As students advance through their

15 studies they are introduced to more analytical tools and techniques in order to analyse and interpret information. As student s progress to Phases 2 and 3, their intellectual skills are further developed as the relationship between theoretical understanding and practice in the workplace is critically evaluated. There is also an increasing emphasis on independent learning with more student led seminars and directed study aided by self-directed learning. The Skills and Integrative modules in the first two years develop an aptitude for applying learning to every situation and should be the basis for successful lifelong learning. All students receive initial guidance on how to identify, locate and use materials. Students are guided through the recommended reading for each module and receive advice on etending their source material. As their studies progress, students are epected to obtain a wide variety of information from different sources. Lectures introduce topics and concepts and tutorials provide the opportunity for students to apply relevant techniques. The Integrative modules allow the application of theory to practical situations. Students will develop the ability to treat every situation as a learning opportunity, the start of a process of lifelong learning and thirst for knowledge. Learning Resource Centre staff will supplement class input on how to make the best use of LRC facilities to support research. Students studying the Programme at a Partner Location will receive equivalent support from staff at the Partner Institution. Module handbooks provide guidance on the production of assessed coursework. Transferable skills are embedded in activities in the programme content, beginning with induction and its emphasis on study skills, all the way through to the etensive case study and practical analysis required by the final year. Particular attention will be devoted to time management in the early stages of the course, again beginning at induction and reinforced by the personal tutor system. Deadlines for the submission of work are announced at the commencement of each semester and contained in the module handbooks. Students undertake a wide variety of learning activities including individual and group work, portfolios, presentations and case study analysis. The Integrative modules will enable students to apply academic theory to practical situations on an ongoing basis. Feedback on all modes of presentation is provided, thus helping students develop understanding and their powers of epression. Students develop self-reliance and self-awareness as they progress through the course, to the etent that they are able to analyse their own leadership style by the final year. All modules, to a greater or lesser etent, require the use of IT skills to acquire and present data. You are required to comply with research governance and ethics principles whilst undertaking their programme of study. This is of particular importance when conducting research involving other people.g. e for module assessments. Information on these principles can be found on the University web site at

16 Assessment At Phase one: Assessment methods used to test these outcomes will include written reports based around case studies, learning logs, reflective portfolios and computer interactive assessment development tests. Computer assessment techniques are employed to give continuous formative assessment. At Phase two: Assessments include an element of group work to prepare students for working in teams in the workplace At Phase three: Assessment at this level is by coursework in the core modules. Coursework inevitably involves research and critical analysis of findings. Topics should be approached from an holistic viewpoint (all outcomes ). The variety of assessment methods employed at all levels is intended to allow students plenty of opportunity to demonstrate the development of their intellectual skills. At Phase 1, lower level cognitive skills will be assessed. At Phases 2 and 3, higher-level skills of application, analysis and evaluation are assessed. Both coursework and eaminations are used to assess practical skills. However, the emphasis is very much on uniting theory and practice and consequently the emphasis on eaminations has been reduced considerably since the last reiteration of the programme. This is an approach which has been encouraged by the CMI. SECTION SI: ADMISSIONS ENTRY REQUIREMENTS Within the contet of the University s Mission Statement, equal opportunities and the Admissions policy, the course aims to attract a wide range of applicants.

The University central Student Support Services offers a range of general, specialist and professional support services for students as detailed in your programme handbook. Equivalent support services will be offered at Partner institutions. SECTION EIGHT: POST PROGRAMME OPPORTUNITIES A report by AGCAS in October 2008 provides useful data on the destination of students with a generic business degree. A generic business degree means that graduates are able to start contributing to their employer s business as quickly as possible. Such students are therefore much in demand. The AGCAS report states that in 2008 nearly 62% of generic business graduates were in full-time, paid employment. The careers of graduates with a generic business degree span almost every sector and typical areas according to the report are as follows: Commercial roles eist in all types of industry, including: retail; distribution; hospitality and leisure; financial institutions; sales; marketing; production management. Relevant opportunities include those in: professional services (chartered accountancy, business consultancy, law and ta); finance (banking, city markets, insurance); major industrial and manufacturing organisations. Significant numbers of business graduates also head for the media sector and take up administrative positions. In 2008, si months after graduation almost 7% of business graduates had opted for further study with another 9% combining work and study. Popular options include Masters in Marketing, Human Resources and International Business Management; the Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL) or Common Professional Eamination (CPE) for conversion to law; the MBA and computing/ict courses. Those combining study with a job often work towards a professional qualification, usually supported by their employer.

19 SECTION NINE: EMPLOYER LINKS A number of employers have been consulted during the early part of the validation process to establish what skills they were looking for from business graduates. Once the programmes had been designed, representatives from all realms of industry as well as professional bodies such as the Chartered Management Institute have commented upon the design of the programme. Guest speakers will be an integral part of the programme once delivery begins, and case studies will be provided by real organisations. The opportunity to attend branch meetings of the CMI, where possible, and the consequent possibilities for networking will be an added benefit of CMI membership. In addition, CMI membership allows students to have access to the etensive CMI library facilities containing enormous numbers of up to date, relevant business literature. Students based at Kedleston Road, Derby will be encouraged to enrol on the successful employer mentoring scheme run by the university whereby businessmen and women guide and advise students throughout their studies.
