Contemporary Management

Module code: CORP 2165

Module description

This is the introductory course in management and operations. The course is designed to provide students with an overview of the management function and its role in organisations and society. The module will introduce the latest management ideas, theories and practice in an interesting and relevant manner, whilst still retaining the best of traditional management thinking.. It will also focus on the operations function, which is at the heart of all enterprises, whether manufacturing or service based. Unless this core function is carried out effectively, there is little hope that the rest of the organization as a whole will be effective.
