Course Summary

The HND in Business is a major workplace qualification course, delivered overs two years, which includes a broad range of highly relevant business and management subject areas, making it ideal for those who have started, or are planning to move into, a career in private of public sector business.

The HND is also recognised as being equivalent to the first two years of a UK degree. HND graduates will therefore gain entry into the third and final year at a university and be able to work toward obtaining a BA Honours Degree in only one further year of study.
