BA (Hons) Business & Computing

These days computing underpins all businesses and the two disciplines are fundamentally connected. On this course you develop a broad understanding of business activity and focus on the influence of business and computing concepts in achieving a business’s strategic objectives.

You will gain knowledge, understanding and a range of practical skills relating to both commercial and non-commercial sectors, and in a variety of geographical and cultural settings. In particular, you will develop managerial and professional level skills and understanding across the two related disciplines of Business and Computing.

If you like to stay ahead of the curve and analyse the latest technologies in computing and leading business theories, then this is the course for you. We’ll equip you with the skills to use a range of data sources and tools to improve performance and evaluate a range of computer tech to meet the requirements of complex business problems.

You also investigate and work with a range of case studies to expand and apply your knowledge in a practical setting.
