Course content

How is management changing? How do the actions of managers impact society, the economy and the political environment?

This course is perfect if you do not have a first degree in business, or relevant work experience, but want to study management from both critical and operational perspectives to improve your employability.

You study a broad range of managerial disciplines and examine how they relate to the wider political, social and economic context. You graduate not just with the ability to excel in a management career, but with the capacity to shape organisations for the better.

You explore issues such as:

  • contemporary management challenges
  • ethics and corporate governance
  • marketing theory and practice
  • environmentally sustainability
  • financial decision making
  • corporate social responsibility

You also have the opportunity to develop expertise in a chosen area of management, putting theory into practice by conducting a case study of the performance of an organisation.
