"I was looking for further self-development in the field in which I operate, which is leisure management. The BA Business and Enterprise course offered a flexible approach to learning, and I could coordinate this around work commitments.""The key aspects I gained from the course were a broader scope of knowledge around corporate strategy and the importance of knowing the business environment in which you operate, as both internal and external factors can affect the stability or success of an organisation. I also gained a greater understanding of business processes and how to apply them more efficiently in areas such as finance, customer service, sales and marketing to gain competitive advantage.
"At present, I am leading on the redesign of sections of the business. The knowledge I gained through the course has given the confidence to ensure this project is structured effectively, with quantifiable outcomes and processes in place to ensure a successful delivery.
"The initial impact from studying this degree meant I gained a new role as an Operations Manager.
"If you are looking for development with a flexible approach, it is an excellent pathway to achieving your degree whilst working.
The workshops are a great source of knowledge and allow engagement and discussion with people in similar roles. The course really added value to my working career. However self-discipline is a must! Take time to plan, and schedule your course work into your weekly/monthly work plans."
