Enrolments are now open for the BA (Hons) in Applied Business and Management starting in autumn 2014.
Who is the qualification aimed at?
The BA (Hons) in Applied Business and Management is aimed at individuals who:
- Have completed the CIPP Diploma in Payroll Management or the CIPP Diploma in Local Government Pensions Management who wish to further their development
- Have completed the CIPP Foundation Degree in Payroll Management or the CIPP Foundation Degree in Pensions Administration and Management who wish to further their development
- Hold an equivalent qualification attained at level six, for example a BA in another subject
- May not hold any of the above qualifications, but have knowledge and experience in a strategic role. Please refer to the experiential learning section below for more information
What will I learn?
This course will encourage strategic thinking. Not all modules concentrate fully on specifics of payroll or pension operations, as the purpose is to challenge students. The scope of the course explores the wider context.
The applied aspect means that skills acquired as a result of interaction with this qualification are designed to transfer across industry sectors and therefore provides a portfolio of varied skills. Students would apply their learning experience to the relevant industry.
Students will be required to attend a number of tutorial days at the University of Derby and will be allocated a tutor who will offer assistance, guidance and feedback whenever needed throughout the duration of each module.
