Give your career a boost
Want to develop comprehensive business skills to give your career a boost? Our course offers you the opportunity to study business and also get specific insight into consulting. We'll give you a grounding in key business areas followed by consulting modules to give you knowledge in this specialist field. The approach to the course includes learning from industry consultant practitioners and building insight and practice with clients and specialists.

Course Details

You will begin Term 1 with three modules, that cover key business areas (Foundations of Financial & Management Accounting, Quantitative Methods for Business, and Strategy Analysis and Practice). Additionally, the Introduction to Consulting module is the first of your specialist consulting modules.

In Term 2 you will study Fundamentals of Economic Behaviour, another key business area, looking at microeconomics but with our unique behavioural science perspective. You will also do two more of your specialist modules (Developing Consulting Expertise, and Current Issues in Leadership). Finally, you choose one optional module, allowing you to explore another field.

In Term 3 you will study your fourth specialist module, Leading and Managing Change, and an optional module. You also follow the course content relating to either the Dissertation or Business in Practice route.

Optional modules
We offer a range of optional modules which reflect the research strength of WBS across the business and management disciplines. You undertake one optional module in Term 2 and in Term 3 (if you choose the Dissertation route, your Term 2 optional module must be Research Methodology). Please note that module availability may vary and that your first choice may not be guaranteed.

Learn from industry consultant practitioners
The course offers you the opportunity to meet external industry consultant practitioners who will discuss and practice real-life scenarios. In previous years these have included IBM, Deloitte, PwC, CSC, Capgemini and PA Consulting. You will develop and practice your consulting delivery skills with client companies and experts from consulting specialists. In previous years these have included Rolls Royce, BT, Whitbread and specialist Chillimint and ICDP.

Assessment
Assessment is a mix of exams, assignments, assessed group project work, and tests. Your dissertation or Business in Practice module brings all of your learning together.

Choice of Dissertation or Business in Practice route

Dissertation route
If you are considering further academic study (PhD) and you would like the opportunity to research a topic relating to consultancy, the 6,000-word dissertation enables you to test and apply the techniques and theories you have gained. You will be supervised and supported throughout, and the Term 2 compulsory module Research Methodology helps you prepare.

In total, you will study eight compulsory modules and one optional module, and complete a dissertation and a Research Methodology module.

Business in Practice route
If you would like to develop further applied skills to suit your career aspirations, you can complete your studies with our applied Business in Practice module. You will develop your business knowledge and personal skills with practical insights from our faculty and our CareersPlus & Corporate Relations team.

In total, you will study eight compulsory modules, two optional modules and also complete the compulsory Business in Practice capstone module.

You must have, or be expecting to obtain, upper second class honours at Undergraduate level from a UK university, or overseas equivalent. This stream will suit a wide variety of candidates looking to break into business and we welcome applicants from all academic fields.

GMAT & GRE
We do not require a GMAT or GRE score but a well-balanced score (700+) may strengthen your application.

English not your first language?
If English is not your first language, you must meet a minimum overall standard in a recognised test of English, examples are shown below. You must show a good balance across all sections of the test and it must have been taken within two years of starting the course. We will require your certificates as evidence.

Educated in the English language?

We do not offer a pre-sessional English class as an alternative to achieving these scores. Any pre-sessional course should be viewed as a way of settling into living and studying in the UK and not as a way of boosting your score.
