Student quote:

“There is no question that the FdA in Business and Management was an excellent course for someone like me (lots of experience but a long time out of education). Not only did it re-engage me with education and learning but it was invaluable in preparing me for the final year at Bournemouth University and my career. I’m now working as a management consultant in a global Financial Services company in London."
