Business Strategy
This module provides a rigorous introduction to the concepts and frameworks used in strategic decision-making and equips students with the necessary tools to undertake strategic management.

International Political Economy
Here you will study the interplay of economics and politics in the world arena. The international economic system is more closely integrated now than ever before, as reflected in events such as the banking crisis that started in the United States in 2008, leading to the near collapse of the world financial system. The global recession, the sovereign debt crisis, and the political turmoil that ensued, provide clear illustrations of the relationship between governments, politics, international trade and finance, international institutions and private interests.

Global Business Practice
This module examines the shifts occurring globally in production patterns, economic activity, and industry evolution. The changing contours of the global economic map reflect new trends in production, trade and Foreign Direct Investment (FDI), and increasing complexity in the global economy.

Managing People
This module explores: different organisational forms; management and leadership; concepts of human resource management and development (HRM/D); HRM/D roles in different organisations; strategic and international perspectives on HRM/D; ethical issues in HRM/D. It also considers areas of practice, including managing the employment relationship, recruitment and selection, and managing change.

Research Methods
Here we help you write the proposal for your dissertation, and practise some of the research techniques you may need to complete your dissertation successfully.

Your dissertation is not simply a long essay, and understanding the nature of scientific enquiry is not straightforward. You will need to base it around a focused question, often called a hypothesis, and use evidence to help answer that question. It is often helpful to use statistics to summarise data, and the ability to interpret and use data sensibly is an essential aspect of being a manager. This is exciting and challenging, letting you glimpse into a world of meaning - to make connections and make sense of the way our world is constructed.

Research Dissertation
Your dissertation is your opportunity to demonstrate your mastery of a particular subject area by completing an extended piece of self-managed research. It will develop and test your ability to conceptualise, appraise and critically evaluate a significant topic in the field of business and management, through a process of research. Your work will focus on a current management issue, which is either a live company-based problem or an area of enquiry that can be applied to real situations. It will normally involve conducting primary and secondary research in your chosen topic and discipline area, and you will present your research and its findings in a 10,000 - 15,000-word dissertation.
