As business and society changes, so too must business educators adapt the ways they prepare graduates to be active employees, managers, entrepreneurs and citizens.
The School of Business and Management at Queen Mary University of London is proud to introduce two new degree programmes designed to meet the needs of future decision-makers in the fields of Accounting and Marketing. We would like to reintroduce you to the school and our three undergraduate programmes.
We have historically offered just one undergraduate degree course in BSc Business Management, which contains a wide choice of options that allow students to tailor the degree to suit their interests. The new BSc Accounting and Management and BSc Marketing and Management take a more structured approach with an increase in compulsory modules, some of which have been written specifically for each pathway, to ensure graduates have the requisite skills and knowledge for a jumpstart into these professions.
Active participants in economy and society require an understanding of the technical issues and practices of business, with an awareness of the potential impact of business activities. Our graduates leave with a nuanced understanding of the tension and debates surrounding businesses’ role in society, along with the technical abilities to work confidently with complexity and uncertainty. However professionally minded, we pride ourselves in being ‘not just another business school’. We have embedded this ethos through our courses, through our recruitment of an eclectic group of academics and most importantly through attracting the best and brightest students who want more than just the acquisition of technical skills. This continues to ensure that the School of Business and Management enjoys a thriving intellectual and social atmosphere.
The School of Business and Management’s mission is one that emphasises the symbiotic relationship between business and society, which is also about life inside and outside the lecture theatre. For example, our current students are playing active roles in social enterprises that include framing and implementing marketing strategies, mentoring children from economically disadvantaged households and learning first-hand how business and society interact. Studying at Queen Mary offers a myriad of opportunities for personal academic and professional development in a richly diverse environment.
