Learning & teaching
You will experience a range of teaching methods including lectures, tutorials, group-working, case studies and both individual and group presentations. Traditional teaching is supported by a virtual learning environment that is used to host a range of electronic supporting materials.
For example, all business students undertake the Business Game module and compete in teams in a computer simulation exercise that culminates in a presentation to a panel of external employers
Teaching on the degree is provided from Aston Business School and is approximately 60% business, 40% computing and IT, with an emphasis on the integration of the two subjects.
Assessment is provided by a mix of coursework and examination. Students who are made an offer will receive a detailed programme specification which forms part of our terms and conditions.

Our business degrees are designed to also give you a range of transferable and practical skills to succeed within your chosen career. We make extensive use of group working and presentations to prepare you for the reality of working life. Such work develops your team working and negotiating skills.
Our placement year gives you the genuine practical work experience that is invaluable in developing an appreciation of issues such as office politics which cannot be replicated in the lecture room.
