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 People introduces the key principles and practices that underpin the management of human resources. You will explore the scope and content of a human resource strategy, the methods of recruiting and selecting a workforce, the principles and practice of performance management, ethical dilemmas, the identification of training and development needs, and the ways in which human resource planning and work design are implemented. 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 so as to add value by transforming inputs into saleable or usable output products and services. Organisational Theory and Design seeks to provide a framework for the understanding and analysis of organisations with particular reference to organisational design, processes and change. The organisation will be critiqued from a number of perspectives: individual, systemscontingency and culturalsocial processes. These perspectives will encourage a critical awareness of organisational dynamics and will provide you with an evaluative framework in which to engage in independent problem solving. 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.
