About the course

Do you have what it takes to run or manage a successful business? This two year Foundation Degree in Business Management is awarded by the University of Plymouth. As well as being a higher level qualification in its own right, successful completion of this Foundation Degree offers several routes to progress onto the second year or final year of a whole range of business-related honours degrees at Plymouth and other UK universities. You’ll study all aspects of managing a business, including people management, marketing, organisational behaviour, research practice, business finance and e-business for decision making. With an overall student satisfaction score of 96%, you’ll learn in a supportive environment, where our smaller class sizes mean you’ll benefit from increased contact time with your tutor. Timetables for this Foundation Degree are student-focused, making it easier for you to balance your studies with part-time work or family life. City College was also recently awarded the TEF gold award – becoming the only HE provider in the City of Plymouth to take the top prize – for the quality of our teaching, learning environment and student achievements.
