Module code: CORP 2544
The module introduces the nature of organisations, the context in which they operate, the range of business functions and tasks managers need to perform. These are discussed in relation to five key themes- (1) managing operations, supply, and quality; (2) managing marketing; (3) managing human capital; (4) managing change and (5) business ethics and social responsibility. Students are expected to develop and enhance a range of skills required of managers working within a range of business functions and to be effective performing management tasks. This will be achieved through developing group-working skills in diverse and intercultural groups, which will be essential for studying in an international environment and transferring these to the global work environment. Students are encouraged to explore these themes and the implications they have for managers performing tasks in different business functions, across national and international boundaries, and ensuring decisions and actions consider both ethical and environmental issues.
