Course summary

  • Study your foundation year, then progress to the full degree.
  • Develop important business and management skills from the very first day.

This foundation year has been designed to enhance your knowledge of business and management in advance of undergraduate study. You'll study a range of topics, and apply your skills on rewarding projects and assignments. After completing your foundation, you'll have everything you need for full honours degree study, and progress directly onto the BA Business and Management course.

How you learn

The course is suitable if you don't meet the entry requirements for our BA (Hons) Business and Management course, or you want extra preparation before starting degree-level study. You share the first year with other Sheffield Business School foundation year students, then move on to the degree.

You will learn in a supportive, challenging and exciting environment. You will be based in Sheffield Business School, a vibrant, dynamic setting with excellent facilities and located in the heart of the city.

You learn through

  • lectures and seminars
  • case studies
  • presentations

  • work placements
  • activities and events

In the foundation year, you'll study wider business topics, while specialising in your chosen subject area. You'll learn useful skills such as academic writing, work in diverse teams and learn to utilise a wide variety of data sources. In doing so, you'll fully prepare yourself for undergraduate study.

Applied learning

Degree preparation

After the foundation year, you will be ready to start the full degree. BA Business and Management is an engaging, challenging course where you will learn to excel in your field, under expert tutelage and with fantastic opportunities for progression, networking and work placements throughout.

Placement opportunities

You will have the opportunity to arrange a work placement in the second year of your full degree. This gives you a real-world experience to prepare you for your future career — improving your business acumen, self-management, contacts and interpersonal skills.

Live projects

On the BA degree, there are a range of projects, business simulations and client-led tasks that will allow you to apply your knowledge to real-life scenarios. You'll improve your analytical mindset, learning agility and critical thinking through these activities.

Networking opportunities

Your continued engagement and interaction with the business world will allow you many opportunities for networking throughout the honours degree. You'll work with others, improve your interpersonal skills and learn to build relationships.
