We aim to inspire students to achieve in Business by understanding the key principles of how businesses are organised and how they function plus planning, marketing and finance.  Courses offer a balance of Business and Enterprise skills as well as key transferable skills useful in any career such as time management, problem solving, analysis and evaluation.
