Year of entry: 2020
BSc (Hons) Management (Innovation, Strategy and Entrepreneurship) will be ideal if you are interested in exploring the challenges of making strategy, managing innovation or developing a new business through the analysis of real company cases and cases of important product, process, service, organisational and business model innovations. To graduate with BSc (Hons) Management (Innovation, Strategy and Entrepreneurship), you need to have studied at least 40 credits of second-year options (one third of your studies) and at least 60 credits of final-year options (half of your studies) within these specific subjects.
Since the Management and Management (Specialism) degrees are identical in the first year, transfer between them is straightforward, so you should apply for only one of them.
This course aims to promote critical awareness of the merits and complexities of management and to instil an appreciation of the association between theory and practice. It aims to introduce you to important new developments in the field of management and to enable you to develop appropriate practical and transferable skills.

Personal development plans
PDPs are aimed at helping you develop awareness of generic transferable and subject-specific skills, improve independent learning and provide a record of your academic learning and achievement.
All new Alliance Manchester Business School students are allocated an academic advisor who you will meet in regular sessions as part of a first-year course unit. Where possible, you will keep the same academic advisor throughout your time here. Your advisor will support you throughout your studies on matters of an academic nature, from providing feedback on a practice essay in preparation for your `formal' assessment at the end of each semester to discussing your PDP or writing you a reference. We also have a dedicated undergraduate assessment and student support centre within the School, who will be your first point of contact for any ill health or other personal problems which are affecting your work.
We operate a peer mentoring scheme which aims to provide you with a second or final year 'mentor' to provide practical assistance with orientation and induction as well as advice and information on any aspect of student life.
