I heard about the School of Management and that it's one of the best in Europe, and thought yes this is where I want to come - it's a castle, why not! The teachers are really good. If you have any questions - no matter how silly they are - they will always help you. Miruna-Cristina Galea, BSc International Business and Management

Sandwich year

This 4-year programme offers you the opportunity to take up a placement year working in business in your third year.

Placements are real, paid jobs in a wide variety of organisations in the private, public and not-for-profit sectors and offer you an invaluable opportunity to experience first-hand how business and management concepts are applied in practice, and to give you direct exposure to real issues in the workplace. It can also be done abroad.

The placement year is a vital part of your learning and will add significantly to your personal development, self-confidence, planning, communication and business acumen skills. Evidence suggests that students participating in work placements attain higher degree classifications and improved graduate employment prospects. You will be responsible for finding a placement opportunity; you will be fully supported by our dedicated work placements team who will advertise potential work placements, help you with applications, CV writing, interview techniques and in preparing for your time at work

In a competitive graduate market, valuable experience and employability skills gained from a year’s work placement will differentiate you from the thousands of other graduates seeking work.

We find that students return from their placement year with their confidence and personal skills enhanced and ready to implement their focused plan for the future.

The School of Management has an excellent network of organisations that offer placements including:

  • IBM
  • Vauxhall
  • NHS
  • GE Money
  • Arris (formerly PACE)
  • Enterprise Rent A Car
  • Cummins
  • Peugeot

Together we ensure your placement is appropriately challenging and that you can make a real and positive impact on the business.

Learning and assessment

For all taught modules your learning will be directed, supported and reinforced through a combination of lectures, tutorials, small group seminars, virtual learning environment activities and guided private studies. Generally, for each module, you will attend one lecture and one tutorial each week during which you will be in direct contact with teaching staff. Methods of assessment vary according to the learning outcomes of particular modules and the stage of study. Accordingly, a mixture of examinations, essays, group work and presentations will be used in assessment of your work. The School of Management is committed to demonstrating the relevance of taught material to real business problems; you can expect to see guest industry lectures and the use of real industry sponsored business problems for assessment purposes.

Study abroad

As a student at University of Bradford School of Management you'll have the opportunity to study abroad at one of our partner institutions around the world. This gives you international experience, exposure to a different culture and opportunities to network with students and academics at other leading business schools.

Study tours

Students have an opportunity to broaden their international experience by taking part in study tours embedded alongside our programmes throughout the year. These tours are provided by the Faculty where all expenses are covered. Previous tours have included trips to Bahrain (Ahlia University) and Qatar (Qatar University).

These tours help our students to gain knowledge about international business and entrepreneurship, as well as providing opportunities to practice and develop communication and interpersonal skills. Students are given a hands-on opportunity to apply the knowledge they have gained in class, all whilst becoming more aware of diverse cultures and strengthening international relationships.

Students take part in a dynamic mix of both theory and practice-related activities including: interactive problem-solving workshops, company visits, talks by guest speakers (from the public and private sector), cultural visits, and social activities
