Develop your career with an online Management degree from Anglia Ruskin University, accredited by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI). With the full range of business skills, including managing people, marketing, finance, planning and strategy, leadership and sustainability, you will learn how companies operate and compete - and how, by applying these management skills, you can help them achieve their strategic ambitions. Study while you work on our distance learning degree course, and take your career to the next level.
Our course is designed for you if you're new to management and will help you to develop a raft of new skills and enhance your managerial experience.
As well as studying the theories behind management and leadership, we focus on developing relevant, practical knowledge that you can put to use straight away in your work, making a real difference to your personal performance, to your employer and as you progress through your career.
Our degree course is designed to be completed in four years while you're working. However, you can also study for an intermediate award and 'top-up' to the full BA (Hons) at another time. You'll be able to gain a Cert HE Management in 18 months, or an FdA Management in 30 months.
Whichever award you choose to study for initially, our specialist distance learning tutors will guide you through the course, making sure that you're learning things that are relevant to your career. You can study online from a place that suits you: you'll simply need a PC and internet access. You'll also have use of our facilities, including an extensive digital library, and it's possible to join some workshops at our Chelmsford campus.
