Risk and Ethics
The module informs and equips you to effectively respond to the governance challenges organisations face today. The module aims to investigate the key components for securing the highest standards of effective corporate governance.
Leadership and Change
Managing change is an increasingly important aspect of the manager's role. This module will equip you with the knowledge, skills and abilities to recognise and understand the need for change and the nature of the change required, and to deploy a range of measures (tailored to the diagnosis) to ensure that the change process is managed and led effectively and efficiently.
In an increasingly global environment this module seeks to develop your understanding of the socio-cultural, economic, legal and political variables which will impact on the international decision making and planning processes of an organisation and influence international marketing mix strategies.
This integrative core module, which places particular emphasis on achieving a balanced understanding of strategic management theory and practice, introduces the concept of Business Strategy. It aims to develop your awareness and understanding of the means by which viable business strategies can be developed and implemented in a complex and challenging competitive climate.
