At undergraduate level, students undertake a three year staged Bachelor programme leading to a BA (Hons) in Business Studies degree. At each stage, students can choose to progress to the next year of their studies at GBCM or graduate with an internationally recognised qualification.
This option to graduate after years one and two provides flexibility for those students who may not want to commit initially to a three year degree programme or who may want to take time out to work during their studies. In addition, the programme is ideal for those who may want to study for a certain period in Munich and then continue their Bachelor studies elsewhere (credits from the first two years of the programme can be transferred to selected colleges in over 30 countries world wide).
In year one students gain an understanding of key business areas such as marketing, finance, accounting, management, research and law. Courses are conducted on a full time basis over two semesters. Upon successful completion, students are awarded a Higher National Certificate in Business which is accredited by Edexcel.
In the second year of study, students broaden their business knowledge by studying diverse subjects such as marketing planning, operations, entrepreneurship, management accounting, and Human Resources Management. Upon successful completion of year two, students are awarded a Higher National Diploma in Business (accredited by Edexcel).
In the third year, students explore areas such as strategic finance, international marketing, international HRM, business planning and business strategy. Upon successful completion of the programme, students are awarded a BA (Hons) in Business Studies by Griffith College in Ireland. This degree which is accredited by HETAC (the accrediting body of the Irish government) is designed to provide students with a rich, holistic perspective of business.
