Course Overview

The Business, Culture and Society course is designed to cover broad issues and trends in business, and to do this in a way that encourages students to understand what is that makes up appropriate university level practice.

The students for this course come from a variety of backgrounds (international schools teaching to a number of different qualifications). With a diverse background some are prepared for the transition to be independent-critical thinkers better than others.  It should also be noted that for many on the course and programme English is not their first language.
