Students are actively encouraged to critically evaluate a broad range of management, law and business concepts, developing their understanding for strategic and operational entities. 

For the Business elements, in Year 1 students explore several principles underlying business management - examining the dynamic interrelationships between different aspects of business including markets, people and organisations. In Year 2, students engage in critical analysis of people resourcing, business leadership and globalisation. The final year enables students to consider the complexities and ethical implications of business strategies, and the emerging issues confronting organisations, in an era of increasing globalisation and ethical, social and environmental concern.

The Law elements encourage students to develop their ability to analyse and critically evaluate problem scenarios and to present students written and oral arguments in a clear and concise manner. The course provides opportunities for students to focus on the development of practical skills - which may include role-play, presentations and negotiation - along with other transferable skills such as research, problem solving, teamwork and independent learning.

Employability 

The Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE) record collects information about what those completing university go on to do six months after graduation. The Careers Service undertakes DLHE on an annual basis through surveys and a data collection process. DLHE is designed and strictly controlled by HESA.

While DLHE provides accurate information about first destinations, this data needs to be viewed with some degree of care. Six months after leaving university is often a time of much uncertainty and change for leavers; many will be unsure of their long-term career plans and may take a temporary job or time out. The destinations of graduates only six months out of university do not necessarily reflect longer term career success and are therefore a crude measure of employability. Therefore, DLHE data should be viewed as merely a 'snapshot' of one particular year's experiences at a specific point in time.

At the University of Winchester, we are committed to ensuring all our students gain employability skills to enable you to enter graduate level jobs and pursue the profession of your choice, for more information please read the Employability Statement.
