Modern organisations are looking for business professionals who not only have relevant knowledge and skills but who are ready to join their teams and make a difference. This one-year degree top-up course will extend your business knowledge and practical business skills and enable you to convert your HND into a full Bachelor's degree
With the skills you develop during this top-up degree course, you'll be ready - and qualified - to take on the challenges of any modern workplace.

Course Overview

On this Level 6 top-up degree course, you will further develop your understanding of the theory and practice of modern business. Throughout the course, you will have the opportunities and support needed to develop the core skills you need to excel in business.

The modules of the course will introduce you to key concepts in organisational strategy, leadership and management. The practical work and assessments throughout the course focus on what you’d encounter in the professional world: pitching, presenting, reporting, managing groups and leading projects.

As a business professional, you’ll need to be ahead of the game with your understanding and analysis of the latest thinking around the subject of management. For this reason, a dedicated module on New Trends in Management will ensure your knowledge is current.

You’ll gain valuable skills and knowledge that you can apply in a wide range of situations in any sector. As a graduate of Business and Management, your career options will be wide and diverse, including opportunities at both large and small organisations, in the private or public sectors, and even starting and managing your own business.


You'll be assessed in a wide range of ways that test your business knowledge and management skills. These could include presentations, work-related projects, group work, computer-based simulations, podcasts, exams, essays, videos and business reports.

You will be required to work on your own time to complete research, homework tasks or group work. Self-study is vital to your success on this course and lecturers will give you guidance on how best to approach this throughout the study period.

Assessment methods at GBS are reviewed annually and may be updated based on student feedback, to suit content or based upon feedback from an External Examiner.
