University of the West of England (UWE)
The BBA offers students a current and integrated business education covering the main disciplines and operational areas of business. The curriculum aims to challenge students in their ways of thinking, behaving, learning, and issues of ethics & ethical decision making, sustainability and global citizenship are embedded throughout. The BBA programme actively seeks input from the external environment and student learning is grounded in the external context wherever appropriate through, e.g. external speakers, assessments that require students to test out concepts in practice and reflect on their own experience of organisations.
In addition, all students of BBA are encouraged by the curriculum into actively pursuing work experience of some sort i.e. via placement, internship, or volunteering. Student achievement is supported by a clear personal development strand of transferable skills and ‘brain habits’ over all four levels that facilitates the transition into Higher Education and which underpins employability and lifelong learning.
