Module Descriptions

Organisational Behaviour

The way people are managed within organisations plays a paramount role in corporate success. In a fast changing organisational landscape, we take into account impacting factors such as social, technological, economic, environmental, political and legal considerations. With a variety of real-life case studies, you will be asked to make decisions, which will inevitably influence the (work) life of your employees. These are of course, backed by the core taught concepts, which feature group dynamics, motivation and leadership, group behaviour, communication, power, conflict and prejudice in the workspace, organisational culture and how to manage and understand change within the organisation.

Marketing Management

You will reinvent the airline business, redefine the boundaries of retailing, manage the sales of an online computer mega store, and learn how to focus on your customer. Seems like a bold prediction but it is just the content of marketing management directed by a marketing specialist.

The teaching of market segmentation, environment, research, innovative sales system, international marketing and policy planning and implementation will make sure that your view of marketing will never be the same. A concrete marketing plan for your company or your own business will be your final assessment, providing you with flexibility and effective learning results, which you can assess and apply in no time.

Financial Management

Business is about profit, and there can only be sustainability with a proper knowledge of effective financial management. Oxford and Harvard Business School graduate Prof. David Duffill will expand and reinforce your knowledge of financial accounting, management accounts, budgeting and financing.

Once again, the course leader is not just crunching numbers. He will link each topic to real financial situations where you, as the manager in chief, have to assess the financial performance of successful corporations, and develop sharp analytical skills with tools like decision tree analysis.

Financial Management is about successful financial results. At the end of this course you will not only know the basics, but you will be in the position to master every component of superior financial management and analysis.

Leadership and Sustainability

The aim of this module is to examine the nature of leadership and in particular its role in the development of sustainable business and business practices. Among other activities you will analyse and evaluate the business case for sustainable practice in selected sectors and organisations, examine the potential for implementing sustainable business practices for selected sectors and organisations, analyse personal leadership practice and its development and evaluate the personal relevance of and implications for leading sustainable change in business.
