Academic Study and Research Skills for Business

The module aims are that by the end will have gained the basic skills required to undertake business research; analyse, evaluate and interpret data from that research; and arrive at useful conclusions for making business decisions. This will enable students to develop and prepare their own research projects from thinking of a topic, to setting research objectives, managing the data gathering, analysing and then to presenting their findings in a clear and meaningful way.

Business in Context

The module introduces the study of business and examines the complex and dynamic environment in which businesses operate. An important theme is how businesses can best be understood as a series of interrelated activities in a set of different dynamic and ever evolving contexts. Students will examine different business organisations, the people who work in them, the context of their operations and its outputs

Maths, Literacy and IT Capabilities for Business

The module is essential for introducing students to modern day business where numeracy, literacy and ICT skills are crucial. More immediately it introduces fundamental arithmetic and writing concepts that are fundamentally required enable progress into a range of business subjects studied at degree level. These are framed within a structured and supportive environment that will enable students can start to develop their appreciation of the importance of mathematics more broadly to understand and describe abstract ideas; how clarity in writing can have a great impact upon performance and how necessary IT is in the contemporary in facilitating communication and information processing. The world of business practice is utilised where appropriate to develop maths, literacy and IT skills and abilities in context.

Management in Action

'Management in Action' is intended to outline the scope of responsibilities and means by which management functions. This can be achieved by general learning, examples from case study and from the experience anyone has witnessing management in action. This foundation module is designed to provide a thorough preparation for learning the skills and knowledge at undergraduate level that will be required to become a confident and effective manager and people leader upon graduation. The module draws upon, pulls together, reinforces and enhances knowledge, skills and abilities developed in the previous three programme modules.
