BA (Hons) in Business Management


University of Wolverhampton

The University is a place of knowledge, innovation and enterprise. We pride ourselves on these three tenets. They underpin our strategies in learning and teaching, in research, and help us to engage with the business world. That is why we have come to play a vital role in the economic and cultural development both of our region - and far beyond - and are a global provider of entrepreneurial education.


The roots of the University of Wolverhampton lie in the 19th century growth of Mechanics Institutes, providing vocational and general education for working men. In Wolverhampton the Free Library (1870) developed technical, scientific, commercial and general classes, while a School of Art, established in 1851, had been developed into the Municipal School for Art in new buildings by 1885.


By 1903, we had courses in coach building, house painting and pattern making. The foundation stone for the Wolverhampton Staffordshire Technical College was laid in 1931, and by 1969 the College was officially designated Wolverhampton Polytechnic. In 1992, we were officially granted university status and became the University of Wolverhampton, with a history of providing pioneering education for over 180 years.
