We want you to have all the information you need to make an informed decision on where and what you want to study. To help you choose the course that’s right for you, we aim to bring to your attention all the important information you may need. Our What You Need to Know page offers detailed information on key areas including contact hours, assessment, optional modules, and additional costs.
† Some courses may offer optional modules. The availability of optional modules may vary from year to year and will be subject to minimum student numbers being achieved. This means that the availability of specific optional modules cannot be guaranteed. Optional module selection may also be affected by staff availability.
All full-time students on this course have the opportunity to take a year-long work placement after the second year. A work placement can allow students to gain valuable experience and apply their learning in practice. Students are encouraged to obtain placements in industry and do this independently, although tutors may provide support and advice during this process. Please note that students who choose to undertake a work placement do not pay tuition fees for that year, but are required to cover their travel, accommodation, and general living costs. For more information about this please visit LIBS work placement pages.
Students study core modules during the second and thrid years at the University's on-campus business incubation centre, Sparkhouse, for their business start-ups, giving them access to meeting rooms and kitchen facilities, as well as post and reception services. They can access Lincoln International Business School's business networks and academics who specialise in research into small businesses and sustainable entrepreneurship. There are also opportunities to benefit from mentoring from members of the School's advisory board and the city's business community.
Graduates may choose to continue running the businesses they start while on the course or create new ventures. Others may use their entrepreneurial and business management skills as business development managers within organisations in the private, public, and third sectors.
Lincoln International Business School works with students and organisations to enhance the contribution of business to society. For students, that means developing their business skills and knowledge to improve their career readiness.
The University of Lincoln is a member of AACSB, a global nonprofit association connecting educators, students, and businesses to achieve a common goal: to create the next generation of great leaders. Find out more.

Accountants play an integral role in the business world, providing the financial information needed to inform the decisions of an organisation.
At the heart of every successful business are people with the expertise to use physical and human resources and lead teams effectively.
Successful marketing lies at the heart of commercial success, requiring professionals with skills, knowledge, and creativity.
At Lincoln, we strive to make sure our student experience is engaging, supportive, and academically challenging. That is why, in response to the issues presented by the Covid-19 pandemic, we have been prioritising face-to-face teaching sessions for our new and returning students in areas where they are the most valuable, such as seminars, tutorials, workshops, and lab and practical sessions. Additional online opportunities have been introduced where they support learning and have been shown to be successful and popular with our current students.
Safety remains a key focus. We are fully prepared to adapt our plans if changes in Government guidance makes this necessary, and we will endeavour to keep current and prospective students informed.
