The Foundation in Business, Management and Study Skills is run on campus in Malaysia and provides direct entry to the Bachelor of Business Studies.
The Business Studies degree programme is designed to give you an introduction to the foundations of business and guide you to a specialisation in economics, management, finance, marketing, HR or business analytics.
Since the 1980s, the programme has continually adapted to reflect business studies theory and, especially, developments in business practice in the real world. Through elements such as business simulations and new enterprise development projects, we set out to stimulate and foster imaginative thinking among our graduates, giving you the skills to arrive at solutions to business problems.
The four-year course includes an optional 11-month paid work placement that gives you the opportunity to experience working in a real business environment. Alternatively, you can opt to spend a year at one of our partner universities in Europe.
