Course Description

Accredited by the Association of MBAs (AMBA) In an increasingly competitive job market, it can be hard to stand out from the crowd. With an AMBA accredited master?s degree from Oxford Brookes University Business School our graduates go onto successful international careers with a range of commercial and not-for-profit organisations. This course is designed for students with a first degree or equivalent in virtually any subject. We use a range of teaching and learning methods including interactive workshops, visiting speakers, role play exercises and the analysis of real-world case studies. Course content The MSc is based on the completion of the following compulsory module elements, plus a dissertation. Compulsory module elements: Business Strategy introduces the major concepts of business strategy and the analytical tools used to develop strategy in complex business environments. You will develop an understanding of how financial statements can be used to evaluate organisational and strategic performance, and how a range of stakeholders interests impact on the development of business strategy. Principles of Financial Accounting and Statistics provides the opportunity for you to develop core competencies in accounting, basic statistics and their integration in business decision making. The module seeks to give you an understanding of financial and quantitative information relevant to middle or senior managers in order to enhance your effectiveness when operating in an international organisation. The module is primarily concerned with the analysis and interpretation of quantitative and financial information, not its production. The content of this module is used as a foundation for further study in other modules including Research Methods. Managing Business Operations explores the complex and interconnecting relationships between functional areas and the real world of business. You will learn how business operations and resources can be most effectively and efficiently managed in order to achieve competitive advantage, and how every organisation has to manage its operational activities in so as to add value by transforming inputs into saleable or usable output products and services. Research Methods and Dissertation is a key component of a master s degree. It gives you the opportunity to explore an area of interest, and students are encouraged to choose topics that will be valuable in their future careers. Undertaking effective management research, and being reflective on the process, is often a requirement of senior management, as well as being a requirement at master s level. On this module, you will be allocated a supervisor who will work with you, providing guidance and advice throughout the process. Personal Development Plan addresses your individual learning needs and priorities, and explores the organisational and individual consequences of individual and collective actions and behaviours. Your personal effectiveness and capacity to recognise, adapt and apply relevant theory to the managerial context, and to personally learn from experience, will be improved by engaging in self-reflection and critical self-evaluation exercises. As well as these compulsory modules a range of optional modules is available. Some examples are included below. The choice is made in consultation with the course director and in accordance with the rules laid down for the award. Strategic Human Resource Management and Development (HRM) develops your understanding of the theoretical origins and underpinnings of human resource management. You will explore the links and possible co-dependencies between business strategy and strategic HRM, and you will be enabled to identify the relationship between achieving strategic objectives and the implementation of appropriate and coherent HR strategies. Organisational Theory and Design seeks to provide a framework for the understanding and analysis of organisations with particular reference to organisational
