Quality research from world-leading students

Our BSc in Business Administration is one of the top business degrees in the country. All students undertake a final year project running from October until April. Read more about the BSc in Business Administration.

Project teams typically comprise five or six students with a range of academic specialisms. All students will have completed two six-month work placements as part of their course. They come to the final year project ready and able to deliver quality research.

Feedback about the quality of our students' research from project sponsors is very positive. Findings and recommendations are routinely implemented by our partner organisations.
