A foundation degree is a stand-alone programme equivalent to the first two years of a traditional degree. It differs from a traditional degree in that it combines the academic world with the work-related practical side of the business world. Many students who complete the FdA progress onto the Top- up degree and graduate with a BA (Hons) which takes an additional year for full-time students and one and a half years for part-time.

The Foundation Degree in Business Management is designed to ensure that the student develops an in-depth knowledge of how business works alongside the managerial skills required to progress to a senior role. The course is suited to those new to the sector and those with more experience who are interested in progressing in their career.
