Marketing in a Global Economy This module provides a thorough grounding in marketing theory and concepts. It develops your knowledge of marketing tools and applies these skills in business analysis to international marketing problems. Case studies, workshops, films and guest lectures from business managers generate an exciting learning environment. Finance for Managers As accounting and finance provide the main tools to measure the success or failure of any commercial enterprise, it is clearly an advantage for all business graduates to understand the cost and revenue flows, which underpin business activity. This module assumes no prior knowledge of finance and covers Financial Accounting, the Financial Environment and Management Accounting. You will develop skills in financial planning and control, in analysing and interpreting company accounts and utilise this knowledge to make business decisions.

This module develops your underpinning knowledge and skills for independent thinking about the management of people and issues of organisational behaviour. Managing Processes This module explores Operations Management - the management of activities by firms that produce goods or deliver services. In addition to learning about the concepts of operations, you will gain knowledge of logistics and supply chain management, outsourcing IT in operations, capacity planning & control and operations strategy in a global context.

This is designed to promote an holistic learning approach within the programme as a whole.
