Modules

Business Process and Systems

This module encourages you to develop an in depth understanding of the analysis and re-design of business operations and processes and the systems that support the contribution of these core processes to the core philosophy of the business. The emphasis is to create a practice based module, taking you through a journey of how a real life business plans and delivers the organisations’ operations. The practice is underpinned by relevant theories in two hour workshops – combining lectures and seminars.

E-Business

The module aligns with the programme aims in that it provides you with the opportunity to develop a theoretical understanding of generic theories relating to the conduct and environment of business. It also provides experiential learning in the application of theory in the conduct of business. It includes tasks and challenges that develop key transferable skills essential to a career in business and provides an opportunity to analyse operational situations and devise approaches that may improve performance of the business organisation.

Innovative Thinking for Organisation Development

This Module builds on our practice-based approach to learning. You will integrate theory and practice in order to challenge existing approaches and thinking and propose innovative ideas to support flexible and creative initiatives within organisations. In addition the module meets key expectations set out by employers, the QAA Benchmarking standards for Business and Management programmes and the Chartered Management Institute (CMI).

Cross-Cultural Consumer Behaviour

In accordance with the programme philosophy and level 6 learning outcomes, you will be applying and evaluating consumer behaviour theories and models in a cross-cultural context to develop and justify persuasive marketing solutions for businesses dealing with a culturally diverse consumer base.

You will also be involved in forming effective methods of communicating these concepts and ideas. In doing so you will further develop the transferrable skills crucial to your profession, such as the ability to undertake extensive cross-cultural research, in-depth analysis, visual presentation and the defence of your arguments. This module will equip you with the knowledge, understanding and cultural awareness necessary to engage with the diversity of consumer values and behaviour in contemporary markets, resulting in you becoming an effective global citizen.

International Marketing Planning

This module will explore a range of international marketing topics that will enable students to appreciate the multifaceted nature of cross border marketing decisions and the important role of marketing strategies within international businesses. It will provide you with the opportunity to gain insight into the major differences between the role of the marketing manager in a domestic and international marketing decision making, appreciating the cultural diversity, shifts in market requirements and opportunities of newly emerging markets.

Business Development

This module provides students with a thorough grounding in the techniques of business development needed to achieve organisational objectives. Whilst the module focuses primarily on the sales process within business to business manufacturing and retail contexts, it also explores business to consumer contexts. Employment in sales related careers within the business to business sector represents 8% of total UK employment – one of the UK’s largest sectors of employment and is forecast to grow by 12% by 2020.
