    Hi,

    Im looking at various business and management degrees out there and have found that some do more modules than others, like some unis have 5-6 modules per year and some have 8 modules per year.

    Is business and management that hard that it requires lots of modules and therefore more exams?

    Also, what is business and management like? I haven't done business GCSE or ALEVEL before so would I be at a disadvantage?

    Does the content in business and management relatable to real life events etc?

    Thanks!!

    doesn't matter does it? It's like the old joke about the fella wanting his pizza cut into 4 because “I'm not hungry enough to eat 8". The quantity's the same however you cut it up, and one of the universities that has the fewest course per year, it is 4, is the LSE that is likely best for this.

    More generally my own prejudice about undergraduate business and management is that it is a load of nonsense.The theorizing of common sense. You'd be better off doing a degree in e.g. Finance and Accounting or Computer Information Systems, which confer hard skills that businesses actually want. Who wants a 21 year old CEO?

    I only recently dropped out of a computer science course at university due to it being really overwhelming and pressuring on me as there were many modules involved.

    I'm just curious on what the actual degree is like more than say if it will be a useful degree.
