About the course

The Level 3 Foundation Diploma in Business allows you to develop a broad range of business knowledge and core skills, plus the opportunity to tailor your study so you can focus on a particular specialisation. You will undertake compulsory modules such as the business environment, marketing, and communication, which will give you a solid grounding, but then be able to study additional modules such as management accounting, internet marketing, recruitment and selection, international business, and contract law. It’s this level of specialisation that makes this the perfect course for those who know the particular area of work or study they wish to progress to, and is a highly respected route into employment or an apprenticeship.
