Core modules

Emerging Issues in Business and Society

We live in a rapidly changing world, presenting so many opportunities and challenges for business and society. Draw on thought leadership from a mix of disciplines such as business, marketing, social sciences and the humanities.
This module takes inspiration from the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals as a basis for topical content. Given the dynamic nature of the global business environment, you also study what’s happening in the world right now. We want you to take a critical approach to your research within a wider theoretical and contextual base.

Final Project

Understand the relationship between the University or your workplace and your own practice in a collaborative process of generating and using knowledge. Bring together key elements of learning to demonstrate your knowledge and understanding of practice in a work-based project. The composition, content and context of your project is unique to you. It’s a great opportunity to reflect on your practice to show continual learning and development. And remember, you are taught content to help you successfully manage and complete your project.

People and Culture

Get an insight into how organisations can tap into the knowledge of their increasingly skilled workforce. And understand the impact of cultural differences on individuals and organisations.

Responsible Leadership

Reflect critically and creatively to support your own leadership development. Examine ideas of responsibility, accountability and sustainability and take a proactive approach to developing your own leadership competencies, behaviours and attributes. In a dynamic business landscape, you need to take a creative, developmental and compassionate approach as a leader, to make sure your organisation is sustainable, innovative and agile.

The Global Strategist

As the global business environment becomes more complex and volatile, organisations of all shapes and sizes must think and act more entrepreneurially, innovatively and creatively, to change and adapt.

Explore strategic theories, tools and concepts relating to the external environment’s impact on strategic challenges and choices. Apply a variety of academic and practical material to your own organisation, or a live case organisation – this will help you appreciate the importance of developing and implementing strategic plans for the success of your organisation, its key stakeholders and society
