Why study management at Leicester

Our undergraduate programmes



We also offer a BSc Human Resource Management by distance learning.

“The school’s success is directly attributable to the idiosyncratic approach which it takes towards questions of management and organisation, an approach which underpins everything it does. Unlike the approach taken within most mainstream western business schools, Leicester’s critical approach to management challenges the status quo, rather than simply perpetuating it. Its research, which forms the basis for its teaching, contributes to fundamental management theory and serves as the basis for critical evaluations of contemporary management practices.”

Other distinctive features of the Management Studies course at Leicester include small-group teaching in the first year, our film club Reel Management, our multi-disciplinary understanding of management (in which we draw on anthropology, cultural studies, economics, sociology, politics and psychology – as well as ‘management’ theories) and our innovative Critical Management in Practice module which provides a space for students to reflect on work placements drawing on relevant management research.

Professor Martin Parker discusses how popular culture can be used in the teaching of management at the University of Leicester and why it is important to our students.

Wide ranging career opportunities

Throughout the programme there is an emphasis on the demands of employers for critical and analytical problemsolving skills, team working and the ability to present and communicate ideas, along with the personal and professional skills that you require to keep pace with rapid changes in the workplace and an ever-changing world. Many of our graduates have gone on to enjoy careers in a broad range of public and private sector organisations nationally and internationally; others have chosen to further enhance their employability by embarking upon postgraduate study.

Work Placement Opportunities

Study abroad opportunities

On all of our undergraduate programmes you will have the opportunity to spend a year studying abroad either through our European Erasmus scheme or via the University's International Study Abroad scheme.

A year abroad means extending your degree programme by one year but enables you to improve your language skills, enhance your CV and to experience studying management in a different country.

Graduate opportunities

An increasing number of our students go on to futher study with us by taking one of our postgraduate degrees.
