Course overview

Business shapes the modern world. At the same time, managers need to organise such activities in an environment with limited resources, and face competing demands from different stakeholders. Our course is designed to support the development of new, promising managers, able to rise to the challenge of effectively working within this environment.

Why Study Business Management with us?

Our aim is to equip all students to be effective in exercising judgement and skill in making organisational decisions across a range of interdependent contexts. You will have a firmly grounded knowledge and understanding of diverse contemporary management practices, enabling you to build upon these management skills as promising leaders, operating in potentially regional, national and international markets. The course at University Centre Shrewsbury offers you a unique opportunity to link your studies with local organisations during your placement year.

The academics delivering this course are research active and apply their work to current business practice through informing government policy, providing consultancy services and supporting entrepreneurs. They share their ‘real world’ experience with you to ensure that you are close to real issues and emerging business trends.



Guildhall is nestled on the banks of the River Severn, and only a short walk from the winding streets of Shrewsbury.
First constructed in 2004, and renovated for the arrival of University Centre Shrewsbury in 2015, the Guildhall building is used as the main centre for teaching and learning and offers fresh, modern and open spaces for students to enjoy.
The building boasts brand-new computer suites, lecture and seminar rooms, open-plan laboratories, a spacious library, as well as a student common room, lounge, fitness suite, courtyard, and on-site café.
