Start Dates

Every February, May, August and November.

Course Outline

Most organisations have their fair share of fraud and corruption, and it affects all of us. As we know, what comes out in the press is the sharp tip of the iceberg. So, in these austere times, can we really accept to carry hidden costs and lose value through unethical behaviour perpetrated against us? At the School of Management we have decided to take a stand and teach what most business schools still do not teach... defence against the commercial dark side.

Properly combating fraud and corruption is still an elusive goal. Time and again we see people and apparently well-managed organisations subjected to major embarrassment, financial penalties or even bankruptcy as the result of inappropriate actions and failings by 'trusted' individuals. This course will help you to learn how to address the challenge; how you can ensure that you actively defend yourself and your organisation against the very real threats we would rather not see?

The aims and objectives of the course are to:

-Demystify fraud and corruption (what it is, who does it and why, what it costs us).
-Explore how to bridge the gap between anti-fraud and corruption and 'rhetoric' and the reality of the world we live in.
-Learn how to spot fraud, and develop your own fraud and corruption risk assessment which represents a true picture of what could be happening (in your organisation).
-Demonstrate in practical steps what you can do to pre-empt and prevent fraud, corruption and all forms of unethical business behaviour in your organisation.

This course is accredited by the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA)

If you have any questions about this course, join us for a live online chat with academic tutors and admissions staff.

How will the course be taught?

This is a 12 week course delivered solely online using engaging audio-visual based teaching methods in addition to selected case studies. The course will be moderated by a leading practitioner on fraud and corruption, who will share their experiences and insights with the group. In addition to all of this, the course provides you with full access to the extensive library provision offered by the University of Leicester.

The course is assessed by a practice based assignment. In addition to the development of key skills and acquiring new knowledge, successfully completing the course will provide you with 15 Master's level credits of study and a Confirmation of Completion.

to use your reflective skills to account for your own practice, abilities and experience and how these contribute to developments in coherent and compelling ways.

Career/Further study opportunities

As participants on this course come from diverse backgrounds and experiences it is impossible to point to specific career moves. However the course is likely to be instrumental unlocking career opportunities in several ways:

The course develops you as relational leader who participates with agency and relational responsiveness in your emerging organisation. It will equip you to facilitate and co-create meaning making in your organisation but also to critically reflect on current organisational practice and promote ethical practice. This includes making sense of the organisation as a whole and in your every day practice acting with relational sensibility, poise and practical wisdom.

You will become an agent for change, development and organisational learning who contributes to your organisation or your clients organisation from different systemic consultancy positions, by becoming a reflexive learner yourself, by critically and appreciatively engaging in the process of organisational development and change, and by designing, facilitating and evaluating development interventions to achieve organisational aims.

You will form an identity as a systemic organisational research practitioner with your own research experience and contribution to ethical organisational practice through inquiry and a critical appreciation of different forms of inquiry as instrumental to the emergence of an organisation and the people in it. This will be paramount to taking responsibility for the design and conduct of further research and research programmes and the promotion of ethical organisational practice through forms of inquiry.

Possibilities for further study: Some graduates decide to expand and deepen their systemic insight and practice through a Professional Doctorate in Systemic Practice. Other graduates may want to apply and amalgamate their systemic skills and insight in studying subject matters related to their field of practice e.g. human resource management, business or public administration, education, social work, project management and so on.

PROGRAMME STRUCTURE

PREREQUISITE COURSES

Four prerequisite courses cover fields of study which provide you with the basic skills required to study subsequent courses:

Organisational Theory: Structure and Behaviour shows how various theories and models within the fields of organisational sociology and personality psychology may individually and in combination provide an expedient approach to creating an understanding of organisations as both structure and behaviour.

Emerging markets, their institutions and challenges. The course aims at providing an analytical framework for understanding emerging markets and their institutions. The importance and growth potentials of emerging markets, such as for example the Chinese, mean that they cannot be ignored, but their particularities at the same time pose serious liabilities of foreignness for Western firms. Overcoming these liabilities must start with an understanding of the institutional differences between the emerging markets and the economies of the West.

Management Research Method focuses on the production of qualified and justified knowledge which lives up to scientific quality criteria. This is a sine qua non issue for any candidate in business economics, who wishes to make decisions on an informed background. The course introduces a variety of research designs applicable when carrying out research in the area of organisation and management and related areas. Focus will first be on the philosophical issues pertaining to the creation of valid knowledge. In the second part focus will be on techniques for data collection and analysis. These techniques include qualitative as well as quantitative approaches.

SPECIALISATION COURSES

Organizational Change and Development concerns changes in organisations from a broad perspective. Analytically the course distinguishes between organisational, group and individual level. Changes are investigated with the use of classical as well as more recent theoretical models and practical tools. The course aims to give you a theoretical insight into the topic of change management. Moreover cases are used for practical application of different change models, through which strategic, structural and human issues are integrated. Central elements in the course are:

— Theoretical insight into management of change

— Analysing and diagnosing the need for changes in specific case organisations

— Choosing between types of interventions and strategies for implementation

— Human aspects of implementation (e.g. management, communication, motivation, training)”

Strategy and Business Development seeks to train your ability to apply central strategic tools for diagnostic purposes and subsequent business development in connection with the resolution of managerial aspects of development issues at a strategic level.

Leadership aims to provide insights into personal aspects of management, including issues such as shared, virtual, and team leadership.

Entrepreneurship enables you to understand the factors affecting the formation and growth of new enterprises. You must be able to analyse alternative organisational options and managerial challenges.

Human Resource Management and Development will give you a fundamental theoretical and practical insight into and understanding of the Human Resource Management (HRM) field – the dynamic interplay of person, job, and organisation. The course aims to train your ability to identify and understand different HRM issues and dilemmas within the field, and also in different forms of organisations. The course will also deal with International HRM.

In the third semester you can choose elective courses within your areas of interest. The courses can either be taken at Aarhus BSS during the semester, at the AU Summer University or at one of our more than 300 partner universities abroad. You can also participate in internship programmes either in Denmark or abroad.

The fourth semester is devoted to the final thesis. You may choose the topic of the thesis freely and so get a chance to concentrate on and specialise in a specific field of interest. The thesis may be written in collaboration with another student or it may be the result of your individual effort. When the thesis has been submitted, it is defended before the academic advisor as well as an external examiner.

The Sheffield Hallam Executive MBA (Facilities Management) is designed for estates and facilities managers who want to improve their skills, leadership, knowledge and experience to advance their career into senior management.

This unique course focuses on developing leading edge knowledge and skill sets, improving your ability to successfully lead and manage organisations in an ever changing and increasingly competitive environment. It meets the needs of people who manage in-sourced or out-sourced facilities for their own organisation or provide facilities management services to other organisations. The philosophy behind the course is that in any organisation facilities management is a distinct discipline that supports the core business relationship between people, process and place.

Integrated MBA study with specialist facilities management modules

To be a successful leader, you need to understand, implement and integrate the current fundamental concepts of management, and have insights from differing professional perspectives. You gain this knowledge on our course by studying core MBA subjects within four integrated modules.

Completing an integrated module means that instead of studying a topic such as finance in isolation, you study finance together with marketing and decision making. Our approach replicates the real world where strategic decisions span multiple business areas, providing you with a richer and more realistic learning experience.

The core MBA modules are complemented by a range of specialist facilities management modules such as:
-Delivering strategic facilities management.
-Strategic property asset management.
-Strategic project management.

This supports the development of your leadership and management skills. By transferring what you learn from the course, you can raise the profile of facilities management and the contribution it makes to the effectiveness of your organisation.

Projects tailored to your organisation's needs

We tailor assignments and projects to the needs of your organisation or your own areas of interest, which maximises the value of your studies. Your organisation also has the opportunity to provide input into your learning and contribute to your development. You also complete a dissertation/consultancy project that involves investigating a current major issue from within your organisation.

Applied learning through case studies

As you progress through the course you apply your learning by problem-solving real or simulated case studies. This helps you to identify and deal with links and tensions between different areas of an organisation. You enhance your leadership skills by encountering and managing varying, often competing, perspectives on management issues. Case studies enable you to practice and assess the impact of real-time decision making, embedding and demonstrating the skills you need during your career.

During the course you can:
-Build your skills in coaching, negotiating and influencing.
-Attend guest lectures from leading experts who provide unique insights into management within a facilities management related setting.
-Create a portfolio of work so you can evidence your learning and development.

Flexible course design

The course is designed to be flexible so that you can work comfortably with your existing commitments. We use university-based block study with self managed study time, so you can easily complete the course from anywhere within the UK or overseas. You can also study modules as and when it is suits you, enabling you to progress at a pace that meets your needs.

Multi-professional learning community

When you study an Executive MBA at Sheffield Hallam University you join a learning community of managers and leaders from across a range of professions and industry backgrounds. This provides you with excellent networking opportunities and you can benefit from seeing different perspectives and solutions to managerial challenges. Within our Executive MBA programme we also run routes in business, built environment, education and psychology.

Critical self-awareness

At the diploma stage of the course, you have the opportunity to complete psychometric testing, which can help you increase your critical self-awareness, better understand your skills and identify areas for development.
