Finance for Managers

This module enables you to develop an understanding of the purposes and uses of financial information, together with the ability to use quantitative skills to improve performance management and decision making within an organisation.

Business Economics

This module aims to provide a simple framework for beginning to understand some of the behaviour observed in firms, markets, and industries and offer some suggestions as to appropriate forms of optimising behaviour. A range of models and concepts for the analysis of business activity are introduced. The discussion will demonstrate that while the assumptions and devices used in economics may sometimes seem simple and abstracted from reality, it can nonetheless often provide a powerful framework for interpreting and framing strategic issues.

Managing People in Organisations (F/T)

Managing People in Organisations is an extremely practical module which introduces critically analyses and evaluates key elements of Human Resource Management and Organisational Behaviour to enable effective deployment of people within organisations. A strategic exploration of the global context within which people work and are managed is also carried out through a range of organisational behaviour concepts and theories.

Service Operations and Marketing

This module develops your exposure to the needs and wants of a variety of service customers, including the buying behaviour of service customers, segmentation strategies and the customer experience. You will develop your knowledge of managing operations through methods, models, tools and techniques relevant to service provision. The assessment for this module is a 5000 word analytical report based upon an case study.

Strategic Thinking

This module explores the nature of strategic thinking and strategic management within a range of organisations and across business networks. Case study is used extensively to inform this debate and to cultivate analytical competencies. The intention is to develop your abilities to think strategically and increase critical awareness of your roles in, and relationship to, strategy. Module assessment is via a short essay and a case-study based examination.

Ethical Leadership

This module considers business as a socially responsible activity through which improvement and sustainability are rooted in ethical awareness and action. Students consider what constitutes a responsible business, what the global impact of business is, and whether ethical businesses can be commercially successful whilst critically engaging their own values through reflexivity and a critically evaluative case analysis for assessment.

Managing in the Knowledge Economy

This module enables students to recognise the growing importance of knowledge to organisational success, and highlights the need for organisations to create and manage the distribution of knowledge. We will explore the multifaceted nature of knowledge and learning within organisations. The module is assessed by an individual extended project.

Global Leadership and Change

This module addresses the need to adapt to different international cultural perspectives and worldviews in the light of changing ideas. A topical and eclectic guest lecture series stretches your thinking and conversational skills leading to an individual assignment which assimilates the ideas received during the lecture programme.

A written group assignment gives you the scope to identify important global concerns and develop new insights into leadership and change issues.
