Core modules
  • Management TheoryThis module is designed to facilitate each student's development of their own individual knowledge base and approach to management. Its aim is to get students to develop their own particular approach to management by establishing a solid foundation of management knowledge and integrating this with their own values, experiences and goals, to provide the basis for a life-long development of their management skills.
  • Management PracticeThis Module recognises the importance of people to the success of organisations and that organisational performance is largely dependent on the performance of its human resources, which in turn is determined by the quality and effectiveness of their management. This module is designed to enable each student to develop their own individual knowledge base and approach to effectively manage human resources, by establishing a solid foundation of human resource management knowledge and integrating this with your own values, experiences and goals to provide the basis for the life-long development of management skills.
