Dr Paul Dudley from Royal Holloway’s School of Business and Management, said: “Successful managers are able to deal with complexity in a changing environment. To be prepared for these challenges, you will need an intellectual understanding that will allow you to analyse and contribute decisively to the resolution of these issues.

“The BSc Business Administration degree will assist you in gaining these insights, allowing you to understand issues from a variety of perspectives. The programme prepares you for these challenges by giving you a systematic understanding and appreciation of business administration, as well as the key skill sets required to succeed in today’s hyper-competitive environments.”

The new undergraduate programme will be delivered via the Coursera platform, a virtual learning experience which, allows live sessions with those teaching the programme and the ability to network with fellow students across the globe.

In keeping with the University of London’s mission to increase access to higher education for those without traditional post-16 qualifications, prospective students can be accepted if they successfully complete our online performance-based admission route.

The new BSc programme also offers two pathways, a general pathway and a specialist pathway in Human Resource Management.

Applications and registrations will open on Monday 20 December 2021 and more details on the programme can be found here via BSc Business Administration.

Pro-Vice-Chancellor (International) and Chief Executive of University of London Worldwide, Professor Mary Stiasny, said: “Our globally recognised BSc in Business Administration prepares students for a rapidly changing economic landscape.

Our partnership with Coursera enables us to deliver a high calibre business and management education to students around the world - in a way that is both flexible and affordable.
