The first graduates of a University of Manchester degree in Business Management are expected to graduate in June.
The degree is in the field of Business Analytics, which is the foundation of the business world.
It is part of a programme that includes an MBA and the Master of Business Administration degree.
“This is a new initiative to recognise the unique strengths and opportunities of students and we want to see it become the norm in the next 15 years,” said Mark Hatton, head of the Business Management department at the University of London.
“It is an important step in the journey of the University’s Business Leadership programme and we are pleased that it has been approved by the Chancellor.”
Students are expected by the end of this year to start their new careers as managers in the UK’s finance and insurance sectors.
In addition, the university is looking at creating a degree in corporate communications and public affairs, which could lead to roles in government or in government-owned companies.
The Business Management programme, which offers a master’s degree in the business area, is the first of its kind in the world.
The programme is designed to train future leaders in business, which has been one of the fastest-growing sectors of the UK economy in recent years.
Its aim is to train a new generation of business leaders who will become leaders in a growing number of areas, including finance, business development and public policy.
