Really enjoyed my first year at Sheffield Hallam. The course is really applied ie it has a lot of reference to real life business issues (rather than boring theoretical models).
The tutors are really supportive and give good constructive feedback to my coursework pieces.
Brand new course called Business Analytics however not listed. With the idea that its a new course there is always the worry that the content maybe muddled however the lectures clearly understand the important aspects of the course and where it can head in the future in regards to job prospects
The enterprise aspect/modules and it’s teaching let’s this course down, however more general business modules like finance, consultancy and marketing etc. that are covered as part of this course are highly beneficial and worth credit
The course was amazing - set out some clear learning objectives from the start and throughout - I then used these practically on my placement so when I returned in final year I was then able to portray what I had learned and then practically used to write in my final year essays and gained higher marks as I was able to critically analyse both from a literature stand point and personal experiences - I was then able to walk out of uni with a job
My time on my Business with IT course was very interesting but in all honesty I wasn't at all interested personally. Alls I can say is that if you definitely need to be interested in business and IT, don't just take it because it's academic and you might get a job out of it.
My perception of the value is that it is lacking.
My teachers for one particular module this academic year, namely "Databases for Business" were increadibly inadequate providing little help and the module itself was poorly organised. Others however were exceptional, namely the lecturer for "Management for Performance", she provided a great deal of help to me, including with issues outside of her module which is greatly appreciated.
This course does not provide personal tutors.
Course content itself is okay, most is interesting and useful however I do find SQL boring however that is a personal preference.
Job prospects are decent, the course provides a wide range of knowledge useful for the modern business environment, however it's broad nature does create some restriction.
