The course offered a fantastic insight into the world of business and opened opportunities for employment within various areas including accounting, marketing, consultancy, IT and much more. The lectures were well structured and easy to follow. This was usually followed by a seminar which provided a platform to ask questions and gain more personal learning experience.

The staff are highly knowledgeable and experienced, and resonate the values of the University perfectly. To teach students essential real world experience.

This is all facilitated by excellent on and off campus services which include a vast library of resources, dedicated staff and seamless digital integration. With the help of these facilities I was able to learn in an efficient and productive manner and achieve my ultimate goal of employment.

Currently I am employed as a graduate associate in the University via an initiative by the vice chancellor with the only aim to help build an employment foundation for graduates of Southampton Solent University. My education in business management is helping me complete tasks with ease in this role. I am able to apply my knowledge of leadership, management, integrated marketing and communications, and experience from my consultancy project to this role.

I would highly recommend anyone attending University and thinking of studying Business Management to consider Southampton Solent University as a strong contender.
