Our new portfolio covers a wide variety of subject areas offering courses in traditional business and management alongside new and innovative topics. Although this specific course will not be available in 2019, a similar range of courses will follow covering contemporary topics that suit the changing external environment. Our new courses should be available to view online from mid-November, however in the meantime please do get in touch if you would like to enquire about any of our Business School courses.
