In an increasingly globalised context, businesses are looking for graduates who appreciate the challenges presented by shifting markets, ever changing business models, new social trends and emerging technologies; and who possess the analytical skills to develop business solutions.
Tailored towards ambitious students who are keen to apply theory to practice in a business environment, you will learn how organisations operate from developing strategy to management styles and choose from a range of exciting work placement options.
As such, it will appeal to business management students with an interest in marketing, retailing, operations management and consumer behaviour but also students from other disciplines with an interest in sustainable consumption and the design of interventions (policies and practices) that influence buyer behaviour.
You will work on behalf of an external organisation, which has identified a business problem or question, requiring a solution, working in small group of typically 4 individuals (you will select their own team members), participating in group and individual activities.
Purpose: The purpose of this module, in the broader context of the Diploma in Management, is to enable the student to explain and apply the principles of management with special emphasis on the management functions of planning, organising, leading and control.
