Bournemouth University (BU)

At Bournemouth University, our courses are crafted alongside leading industry experts, passionate about their subjects and your learning. Our approach of integrating our globally recognised research and industry practice means our degrees are designed to give you the skills and knowledge you need to pursue your passion.

Our motto is ‘To learn is to be changed.’ We are renowned for our research and teaching excellence in a range of subjects, including, forensic archaeology, business, health and as a Centre for Excellence in Media Practice.

We recognise your potential and will support you and give you the opportunity to gain real-world experience through placements, volunteering, and collaborative projects. And with over 100 clubs and societies – and the opportunity to be part of our global BU community studying by the sea – that’s the difference of a degree from Bournemouth University.

BA (Hons) Global Business Management is delivered entirely online so is ideal for those who live or work some distance from Bournemouth and international students who are unable to attend the university in person. It also appeals to Armed Forces personnel stationed overseas or considering their resettlement options. The course has been developed in conjunction with the MOD. It is approved by ELCAS, enabling Armed Forces personnel to offset the majority of the course fees through the ELC scheme.

There are flexible entry and exit points so if you’re not interested in a full Honours degree, you can still gain a nationally recognised qualification such as a Certificate of Higher Education in Global Business Management or a Diploma of Higher Education in Global Business Management.

Your programme of study will be conducted via Brightspace, the Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) currently in use at Bournemouth University.
