“I came to study FdA Business and Management as I’d been working in management for over 20 years, but felt I had a slight weakness when it came to the finance side of the job. I wanted to be steps ahead of the rest, able to say I have the qualifications as well as the experience. I have found this to be a good degree as the information taught is immediately applicable and an important foundation. I have found the small class sizes beneficial and the program leaders are brilliant”.
Pedro Fernandes - Events Management Consultant and former FdA Business and Management student

The knowledge I’ve gained over the past year has been invaluable. I’ve learnt so much from being thrown in at the deep end and getting stuck in right from the beginning. It certainly isn’t true that apprentices sit around kicking their heels and making tea all day. I feel useful and valued in my workplace, which is shown by the amount of responsibility I’ve been given in just one year. It’s also a fantastic feeling to be part of a team working together to solve problems and to get jobs done.

Svetlana Cvetkova: Business Administration student

"I loved being involved in the administration environment at Office Angels, gaining in confidence and experience."
Rebekah Feltham-Brown: Business Administration student

“The FdA in Business and Management is run by enthusiastic and knowledgeable teachers who make time for each of their students. The course itself taught me a foundation in business which helped me massively in achieving a higher 2:1 BA degree and eventually getting a well-paid job at a large company."
Joshua Sparks - Service Architect, Atos and former FdA Business and Management student
