    The focus of this module is management and the development of students as managers. Managers are crucial to getting things done, for example, they plan, coordinate, lead and oversee the work of others in order to meet organisational goals efficiently and effectively. The problems and challenges of managing in today’s ever-changing, increasingly uncertain, complex economic environment requires managers and leaders to have the knowledge, ability and skills to take action, such as managing information, delegating tasks, setting goals, building teams, motivating others and along with numerous other activities, achieve organisational success.

    This module provides students with an introduction to both traditional and contemporary management approaches to enable them to formulate effective business decisions when facing the demands of modern management. In addition to knowledge, the module provides students with management skills, such as self- awareness, communication and teamwork. A focus on attributes such as critical thinking and decision-making will help to prepare students for the ‘real world’ of business and management.

    This theory-to-practice approach is embedded in the module through the use of a business simulation which will help students to understand and apply key business concepts. Designed to replicate the multidimensional nature of business and management it encapsulates fundamental cross-functional disciplines such as sales, marketing, operations and finance. It progressively leads students through major decisions including human resources through to strategy as they manage their own virtual company.

    As each decision period progresses, students are given more control over their company, eventually becoming responsible for distribution, operations, product development and financial decisions. Student teams compete against each other in an online multiplayer environment.

    This simulation provides invaluable hands on experience for students, requiring them to analyse data, collaborate with each other, and make managerial decisions. By bringing concepts to life it also encourages more engagement with the theoretical material they are learning.

    Early theories of leadership assumed that the qualities which made great military, social and political leaders were those that would make great industrial leaders. However, the characteristics of leadership required for well-established steady-state organisations are far removed from many
    21st century workplaces where business leaders are confronted with unprecedented complexity and change. For example, the scope of entrepreneurship is widening far beyond micro and small-to medium sized enterprises as organisations that previously could not have been considered entrepreneurial enbrace innovation as a means of survival (Urban, 2012). In order to respond rapidly to changes in the external environment today’s leaders and managers are required to lead and manage innovation, and create an environment that fosters and enhances entrepreneurship.

    This module provides students with an introduction to both traditional and contemporary theories of leadership. It examines how cumulative knowledge of leadership theory can contribute to leading and managing innovation and entrepreneurial activity in modern organisations. Innovation and entrepreneurship are central themes of the module as students explore the characteristics of entrepreurship and identify conditions that foster innovation. Students will have an opportunity to interact with the local business community and are required to identify a local enterprise and interview its founder/current owner to determine whether they demonstrate the dynamic and visionary approach to business proposed by entrepreneurial theory to be typical of entrepreneurs.

    In small groups students are required to explore their own entrepreneurial skills through the proposal of an on-line business application. They are required to use their knowledge of management and leadership theory to manage its development, and they are required to produce a business plan to bring the application to market.

    Throughout the module there is an on-going focus on skills, for example students will be helped through the use of self-assessment questionnaires to identify their own leadership styles and preferences as well as foster their entrepreneurial skills.

    The area of consumer protection law has seen a marked increase in its profile and in the level of legislation, regulations and directives applicable. Membership of the European Union, the move towards a single market and the reduction of trade barriers, have contributed to the increase in the quality and quantity of goods in circulation within the Community and the harmonisation of consumer law. One example of this impact can be found within the area of product liability and the development of strict liability in relation to injury caused by defective consumer products.

    Other contributing factors include the influence of consumer advice organisations such as the Consumer Association and self - regulation within consumer related industries such as the travel industry. Consumer law has also responded to the changes in society and technology in the development of regulations that focus on the concepts of E-Commerce and distance selling. A consequence of these developments is an increasingly complex and interconnected set of EU Directives, Regulations and statute law.

In such contexts, people management policies and practices delivering innovation, adaptability, creativity, change and quality are seen as essential elements in organisational effectiveness and in helping to meet the needs of a diverse range of stakeholders.

    The challenges to organisations and to effective people management presented by developments in markets, technologies and by social and political change are explored in detail and through examination of a variety of material: case studies, e-enabled HR examples and academic and practitioner literature. The module considers options available to managers in responding to and in some cases, anticipating these challenges.

    In this module students consolidate their previous learning by engaging in a research dissertation while simultaneously focusing on their employability. They will pick up the research threads introduced and developed in BA4006 and BA5001 by identifying and researching an industry or sector in which they wish to build their careers and they will write up their findings in the form of a dissertation.

    Their research will involve the review of a wide range of publications (secondary data sources) around the broad area of investigation and this will lead to the formulation of a research proposal for their dissertation. Students will pursue a robust enquiry into a theme emerging from their investigations in their chosen industry, and as the theme emerges, the research methodologies, appropriate methods of data collection, data processing and analysis are evaluated. Both the process and the knowledge and skills gained will inform their approach to their future career and more specifically to their immediate employability. For example, students will be required to identify whether secondary data sources alone will be sufficient to satisfactorily answer their research question. Their ability to critically analyse, synthesise and present data in useable form will contribute to their management capability. This process will therefore inform their research, as well as their future career path. The undertaking of the investigation, evaluation, synthesis and analysis of data will help them to prepare for the graduate job market.

    Researching the industry, identification of contemporary issues and completion of associated activities will enable students to raise their self-awareness, identify their strengths, plan their career and excel in the application process.

    In addition, the module will help students to prepare for the graduate job market by ensuring they have an up-to-date and professional on and offline profile. They will prepare an up-to-date CV and they will engage in simulated interviews to enhance their interview skills while simultaneously completing their dissertation.

    Maintaining a strong corporate image is a strategic priority for most CEOs. Organisations who enjoy a strong reputation in the market see this as a competitive advantage and crucial to improving financial returns, shareholder value and improved competitiveness. External forces, often globally driven can quickly change the way stakeholders view the organisation, often as result of sudden, often unforeseen and relatively unmanageable forces, leading to destabilisation, leadership change and a fall in market value. Understanding and managing corporate reputation is complex as it is not just the responsibility of the corporate communications team, or the CEO it is the responsibility of all employees. This module explores the importance of reputation, what it is, why it is managed it, how it affects the organisation and how it may be perceived by an often complex group of stakeholders.
