It focuses on applied research and management models which can be used to improve business performance, and you will learn to analyse quantifiable information in order to make decisions.

As part of your studies you will also have the opportunity to work with business professionals and/or local communities on live projects. This will help you to gain valuable experience and learn to critique business theory in practice.


You will connect with employers through our dedicated Business School Employability Team who focus on developing your employment skills. They also provide you with CV support and will invite you to employment fairs to network with employers and recruiters from industries. The team was shortlisted for the Times Higher Education Leadership and Management Awards.

We are actively improving job prospects for graduates through the support we provide. According to survey findings, 93 per cent of 2014/15 Greenwich graduates looking for work were already in jobs or further study by January 2016.
