Supply Chain and Logistics Management
This module will focus on the supply chain management and logistics initiatives of international and UK businesses. Successful supply chain management is critical at both an operational level and increasingly at a strategic level. Effective logistics is essential to meeting customer expectations whilst minimising service costs.
This module will provide a comprehensive framework for understanding marketing. Integrating theoretical concepts and models with practical application, you will explore the contribution that marketing can make to business success.
This module introduces the process of research project formulation and the key elements of research design. It will prepare you to design and carry out your research study for the dissertation in a systematic and scientific manner.
This module provides you with a holistic understanding of the most relevant theoretical approaches to strategy formulation, implementation and control, in the context of either a single-business or a multi-business organisation.
This module develops a practical understanding and ability to plan and manage a small to medium-sized project to its successful conclusion. It encourages you to think across management disciplines and to appreciate the significance or impact of their application on the success of a project.
Business Process Management
In this module you will learn about the relationship between operations management and information systems. In addition, this module involves hands-on experience with an enterprise software system (SAP), to put theory into practice. Today, SAP systems enable the global operations and logistics of over 40% of the world’s largest corporations.
Accounting and Finance for Business
This module provides the foundations for understanding, analysing and interpreting financial information, and enables you to apply accounting principles and financial theory across management disciplines and business organisations.
