    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, organise, lead and coordinate the work of others in order to meet organisational goals efficiently and effectively. The challenges of managing in today’s ever-changing, increasingly uncertain, complex economic environment requires managers to have the knowledge, ability and skills to take action. These skills may include managing information, delegating tasks, setting goals, building teams, motivating others and, along with numerous other activities to achieve organisational success.

    The traditional view of the purpose and role of management in the world of work was to seek stability and efficiency in a top-down hierarchy aimed at achieving bottom-line results. In contrast, the contemporary management approach expects managers to engage in motivating people and harnessing their creativity, sharing information and power, leading change, and finding shared vision and values in an increasingly diverse and complex workplace.

    Today’s managers require the knowledge and ability to draw on both traditional and contemporary approaches to management when formulating workplace decisions. They also need the skills, tools, and techniques to manage their own career path based on the acquisition of sound employability skills and accompanying behaviours.

    In addition to knowledge, the module focuses on developing students as managers
    which involves the ability to interact with, and motivate, a diverse range of people.


    The module aims are to:

    • enable students to identify and explain major developments in the history of managerial thought;

    • provide students with the knowledge and skills to deal with the variety and complexity of challenges facing the management of people and organisations in the 21st century;

    • provide students with the opportunity to develop management, leadership and employability capability to enhance their individual potential;

    • develop students appreciation of the different management approaches that can be used when managing in uncertain and complex environments;

    • allow students to experience managerial competence through a variety of methods including field visits and case studies.

    • enable students to develop their management and employability skills, such as interpersonal skills, self-management, communication, team-working, problem solving, and presentation skills, in order to maximise their competitive edge in the business world.

    This module is designed to help students to develop their skills for a variety of situations: study skills at university; skills for the workplace; and personal development skills. It complements the study of business management, for example, students will need to know where to find relevant information for their assignments; how to write in an academic way; how to interpret numerical data, and how to present the findings of their research. Similar skills will be needed in the workplace (for instance, making presentations, writing work reports, analysing sales data and conducting market research). A degree is ideally a means of self-development, a time for personal growth and new experiences and a time for taking opportunities. The ability to reflect and critically analyse are central to this process. Therefore, this module serves a dual purpose because it provides students with the opportunities to develop the skills that are essential throughout your degree, and equally essential in the workplace. In other words, it provides you, the student, with an opportunity to learn how to learn, and as such it will help you to a “can do” attitude, so that you feel on top of things and in control.

    Being able to reflect on your development during the period of your degree will enable you to become more aware of the employability and professional skills you are developing. You will have an opportunity to record your development in a Personal Development Planner (PDP). You will be asked to monitor those times when you use specific skills and the context in which they are experienced: study, work or personal, and you will be asked to consider the transferability of the skills developed in one context to other situations, which is what reflection is all about.

    The overall aim of this module is to help you to develop your general skills as a business management student, which feed in to all areas of your studies, and provide a solid base for your first managerial activities at work.

    This Professional Practice module will enhance the students’ understanding of what it means to be a business professional. This module will support the preparation for their future career by encouraging them to develop, put into practice and evidence the skills and behaviours that employers want to see.

    The ‘Professional Practice’ approach ensures that as a developing professional the students understand how to learn effectively and efficiently either in the workplace or in a simulated context. They also learn how to use all the resources available to reflect on their progress. This module involves planning, conducting and reflecting on their own ‘performance episodes*’ and a more general reflection on their overall professional development to date. The written reports and reflections become part of their growth and productivity E-portfolio** which they will maintain throughout their programme.

    In addition, they will have the opportunity to test, review and evidence their skills development via the on-line resources provided throughout the programme, which support the general skills required by employers. As such this module aims to,

    1. Build understanding of the expected workplace knowledge, skills, competencies and attitudes so that they become intrinsic performance and growth motivators.

    2. Ensure the adoption of skills, attitudes and behaviours that improve self-awareness to aid reflective practice.

    *A performance episode is defined as an initiative that the students take, made up of tasks, which develops their skills, and which involves both selecting knowledge from the programme and interacting with others. It must be measurable so that they are able to reflect on their professional skills development.

    ** The growth and productivity E-portfolio is a digital internet-based tool within which they can store all evidence of their work, feedback from stakeholders, their reflections and their Individual Development Plan (IDP). It allows them to share their journey with others and to organise elements of it to help them progress further.

Year 2 modules include:

  • The business world is currently undergoing profound technological change. Digitalisation has reached new heights and new technologies are helping tackle ever more tasks that are complex. This trend is driven in particular by the availability of large quantities of data – big data (BD) – and by the improved opportunities for using this data through artificial intelligence (AI). The relevance of BDAI is growing as technology, companies, and consumers interact. First, current technological progress facilitates the extensive and practical use of BDAI. Second, companies are increasingly relying on data and the value they extract from it to optimise their business models and processes. Third, consumer behaviour is increasingly shaped by digital applications, which in turn boosts the generation and availability of data. As such this module focuses on the relevance and management of BDAI in business context. This module also focuses on how to lead successful BDAI initiatives by prioritizing the right opportunities, building a diverse team, shaping the strategies and strategic experiments and continuously managing business solutions to benefit the organizations as a whole.

  • This module provides more fuel for this era of strategic and unified views of business analytics (BA) for value creation. Making decisions using huge, messy data requires business analytics. It is important to have a true appreciation of and support for the analytical perspective on the business analytics – on data (a strategic set), and on people (the diverse skills it takes to formulate and execute on a well-thought-through strategy) and on methods and processes. This module focuses on the alignment between organisation’s overall strategy and BA framework. As such, this helps to gain the understanding of what are the businesses going to do with the data and how are they prepared to make better decision using the data.

  • This module develops students’ knowledge, skills and understanding of leadership in the digital era.

    The module begins with an introduction to the classical and traditional leadership theories for example Trait, Transactional, and then builds on this knowledge by developing an important perspective of more current theories e.g. transformational, ethical and authentic, this will provide a basis for an exploration of leadership in the digital era.

    The module develops students’ knowledge of leadership theory and supports the development of their awareness of the importance and influence of leadership in business today. It will then discuss how leadership has developed over time and will bring students to an understanding of how conventional leadership has influenced businesses so far.

    Students will then learn about the changing context and complexity of leading in the digital era. In this context they will analyse not only the types of businesses most usually associated with digitalisation e.g. Google/ Apple but also digital leadership in other sectors e.g retail, finance.

    Students will demonstrate the understanding of the importance of using different digital tools e.g. platforms, in the new eco-system of digital leadership. Most students will be familiar with the platforms and tools that businesses use to engage their target audiences, employees, stakeholders and shareholders, in terms of social media, websites, digital marketing. As such this module aims to develop students’ knowledge further about business and leadership to enhance their understanding of the impact of the innovative, cutting-edge technologies that are driving business today e.g. virtual reality, artificial intelligence, analytics. They will learn that in order to lead effectively leaders must understand technology. As such they will be able to apply and integrate their knowledge from other modules on the BSc Digital Business Management at level 4 and level 5 modules e.g. Artificial Intelligence and Big Data in Business.

    With this sound understanding and knowledge students will then start developing their knowledge of leading in the digital era and the types of skills and competencies it demands from leaders. It will focus on understanding what digital leadership is e.g. the strategies, approaches, capabilities and competencies it requires.

    Furthermore, students will learn how leaders’ behaviour influences others. Importantly they will learn about leading and managing teams in the digital era.

    Students on this module will have opportunity to develop their self-reflection skills by using diagnostic tools to establish their own skill levels in relation to leading in the digital era.

  • The overall objective is to introduce the student to some of the fundamentals of operation management including underpinning concepts, ideas, models, tools and techniques. The scheme of work follows the format of the set book: Essentials of Operations Management, Slack & Brandon-Jones, 2018. The scheme of work also includes the case studies presented in the set book.

    A business adds value through its operations, which today are typically dependant on the use of technology to link together organisations within the value network, improve throughout and match demand and supply. The module aims to equip students with a broad understanding of operations management that will enable them to contribute effectively to performance improvement within a business organisation and its value network.

    The potential for Artificial Intelligence and robotics to further increase the use of technology in the operational domain is already clear, whether using AI in legal process or robots to make burgers, an understanding of the links between technology and operations is important for anyone aspiring to be a business manager. The global nature of business, and the way in which technology is and may be used, raise considerable ethical and moral challenges that must also be considered. This module will focus on the role of technology in operations and any ethical and moral questions this raises.

    Demonstrating understanding, for example process mapping and problem solving using both case studies and other active learning exercises will underpin the teaching of the module.

    The University has a policy that all undergraduates must, at either Level 5 or 6, take a Work Related Learning (WRL) module i.e. a module which requires them to directly experience and operate in the real world of work and to reflect on that episode in order to identify skill and knowledge areas that they need to develop for their career. This module (and “partner” modules, namely, Creating a Winning Business 2 (Level 6) and Creating a Successful Social Enterprise 1 and 2), are module options available to ALL University students to fulfil the University’s WRL requirement.

    This module challenges students to be creative in identifying a new business opportunity and in examining the viability of all aspects of the idea in the real world context e.g. testing potential customers’ views. As a result of the feedback received and enquiries carried out, the idea will change and develop over the duration of the module. Throughout the module, students are required to not only apply the business development theory taught but also to continuously reflect on how they have applied the theory and the skills and knowledge gained from their work. This reflective dimension promotes the development of practical attributes for employment and career progression.

    The QAA Benchmark on Business and Management (2015) emphasises the attribute of “entrepreneurship” and of “the value of real world learning”. In terms of promoting work related skills, the module specifically focuses on practical techniques for generating and developing new business ideas and so develops creative thinking. In addition, it requires students to examine market potential and prepare a “pitch” as if seeking investment. The module requires a high level of self-reliance to pursue their business idea. Students develop an understanding of the role of new ideas in business start-ups, business growth and development.
    These skills and techniques are of practical relevance to anyone considering starting a new business, working for a Small or Medium sized Enterprise (SME) or taking on an intrapreneurial role within a larger organisation where the business environment is constantly evolving and producing new challenges and opportunities.

    For those students keen to go beyond this module and start their own business, they can apply to the Accelerator for access to “seed” money and advice and support.

    Since this module will be taught in the final year of a three-year degree, students will be required to build on previously gained knowledge and research skills. It requires students to pick up research threads introduced and developed in previous analytical modules, identify a topic of their interest and deepen their knowledge further through research, data collection, analysis and write up 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. 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 a useable format will contribute to their management capability. This process will therefore inform their research, as well as potentially their future path. The undertaking of an investigation into a management topic, analysis of data, evaluation and synthesis will help them to prepare for the graduate job market or post graduate studies.

    The aim of the module is to allow students to:
    • Decide on a suitable research area
    • Propose a feasible study investigating their field of interest
    • Present their plan and defend it accordingly
    • Conduct extensive literature research into their chosen topic
    • Develop a suitable proposal including a literature review and methodology
    • Conduct the study accordingly by analysis and interpreting data
    • Report their investigation in the form of a professional dissertation

You don't have to wait until September to start this course at London Met – why not start in January?

If you're a UK or EU student, you can simply call our January hotline on or complete our fast-track online application form.

If you're an international student, you'll need to complete our standard online application using the "Apply direct" button.

If you're a UK/EU applicant applying for full-time study you must apply via UCAS unless otherwise specified.

UK/EU applicants for part-time study should apply direct to the University.

Non-EU applicants for full-time study may choose to apply via UCAS or apply direct to the University. Non-EU applicants looking to study part-time should apply direct to the University. If you require a Tier 4 (General) student visa, please be aware that you will not be able to study as a part-time student at undergraduate level.

When to apply

The University and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS) accepts applications for full-time courses starting in September from one year before the start of the course. Our UCAS institution code is L68.

If you will be applying direct to the University you are advised to apply as early as possible as we will only be able to consider your application if there are places available on the course.
