What Will you Learn from a BSc (Hons) in Facilities & Workplace Management Degree?

The BSc (Hons) in Facilities & Workplace Management draws on a range of disciplines from financial to risk management, leadership to project management, and operation management to innovation and business development.

During this programme, you will learn skills such as critically analysing and problem-solving, the foundations for developing strategic decision-making skills.

You will learn about the key theories, concepts and frameworks underpinning the study of Business Management in an FM context. Practical industry insights and presentations ensure that you can relate theory to real-life work scenarios.

You will learn about the role that Facilities & Workplace Management has in the broader context of how modern organisations perform and the effects of the external environment on facilities management.

Over the course of three academic years, you will learn from expert tutors and industry leaders who will offer their substantial experience from both a theoretical and practical standpoint, in a classroom environment that encourages collaboration and challenge from the students within it.

Students will be able to draw on their experience within the facilities and workplace management industry as they are given assignments designed to engage their critical thinking and problem-solving abilities.

In year one, students will be given a foundational basis of the fundamental principles that make up the FM industry with such modules as Understanding Workplace and Facilities Management and Fundamentals of Management.

That will set you up nicely for the next two years where you will develop your understanding of facilities and workplace management at a much deeper level.

In the following two years, you will learn various valuable skills in the FM industry such as leadership, budgeting, people management, risk assessment and management, strategizing, and negotiation to name just a few. You will also familiarise yourself with key FM concepts such as Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Economic, Social and Governance (ESG).
