Management and Strategy

Module code: CORP 2463

Module description

This module will introduce students to key management and strategic concepts. In particular it will clarify the nature and emergence of management and examine the different ways in which that role has been described. The module will also introduce basic strategic frameworks, as well as examining some of the main theoretical perspectives and how these can complement each other despite being apparently contradictory about the nature of the management task.

This module introduces the theory and practical aspects of managing organisations and the people within these organisations and particularly the formulations and implications of strategic management decisions.

The overall rationale is to introduce students to the role of the manager in the 21st century and how the ideas behind "good management" and the "formulation of strategy" have changed with continuing research and practice.
