CAO applicants who choose CW018 will now be required to choose a course option when completing their CAO application. Course options include:
• Common Entry (CEY) • Business (BUS) • Digital Marketing (DMK)
Applicants should choose CEY (Common Entry) if they are undecided on their speciality and can decide on their degree option at the end of Year 2.

All applicants may change their selection up to the end of Year 2 and must confirm specialism at this point.
Business touches on almost every aspect of modern human society and careers in business are diverse and often highly paid. At undergraduate level students can gain a foundation in many of these aspects of the business world, before choosing a specialisation. Digital marketing is an increasingly important specialism effecting most areas of business including sales, marketing, PR, publishing and customer engagement.
