You will have an understanding of the entrepreneurial mindset, ways to identify or create opportunities and the strategic and operational issues in firm creation. Create your own career by starting your own lifestyle or high-potential startup, be entrepreneurial while working in a family business or being an intrapreneur within someone¿s business.

You will be prepared to work with international trade and investment organisations or in the public and private sectors in management, strategic planning, research, corporate government relations, global operations and public relations.

Logistics and Supply Chain Management

You will be able to work as a logistics and supply chain manager, purchasing manager, business or strategy manager, or export and import operations manager. Career opportunities exist in the public, private and not-for-profit sectors.

Management

Good managers are needed across all sectors and in businesses of all sizes. With this qualification, you can apply your business management knowledge to an area of personal interest and find work in roles as a business manager in human resources, strategy, planning and policy, and training and development.
