Management studies

Business Management with Organisational Behaviour has been created for the student who wants career success in business. Designed to appeal to committed and driven individuals who aspire towards excellence, with strong emphasis on developing capabilities for a career involving people oriented and problem solving business management. Students with a curiosity in how to manage and motivate both themselves and others will learn skills that provide opportunities in careers such as business start-up, management within organisations as well as consultancy and business analysis. With specialised modules throughout, in the final year students will also have the opportunity to choose to complete a dissertation or a small business plan as their level 6 project - the dissertation offering a more traditional route for a student who wishes to research a particular business area of interest, or the small business plan, which will enable those students wishing to start their own business to develop the skills necessary.

Modules

At Level 4, students acquire the introductory skills and knowledge required for academic and professional success, with the following compulsory modules:
• Business Research and Study Skills
• Business Environment
• Financial Accounting
• Customer Focus and Marketing
• Organisational Behaviour
• Enterprise Project
The emphasis at this level is around research for writing, using data and analysing statistics, relevant academic theory and an introduction to critical business subject areas.
At Level 5, students build upon level 4 skills and general knowledge and understanding to develop their ability to learn through practical research and student-led discussion. Students critically analyse business theory in relation to real life examples in order to specialise in, as well as develop, an in-depth understanding and practical application of business and theory. Compulsory modules are:
• Managing the Self
• Career Planning and Progression
• Research Skills
• People Management
• Operations and Strategic Management
• Employment Law and Company Law

At Level 6, the modules will enable application of knowledge and understanding. Building on previous years’ modules, students will be able to critically evaluate, problem solve and synthesise what has been researched, taught and learnt in order to assess and critique effectively the impact of business theory on business practice. The final focus for students is the choice of a dissertation element or small business plan, encapsulating the learned content across a significant themed project.
Modules at this level include:
• Coaching for Performance (compulsory)
• Management Consultancy or Sustainability (option of 1)
• Strategic Human Resource Management (compulsory)
• Global Economics and the Policy Environment or Business Analysis (option of 1)
• Dissertation or Small Business Plan (option of 1)

Assessment methods

The assessment approach is designed to ensure the student’s breadth and depth of knowledge is tested, aiding and enhancing understanding of the subject of Business and Management. The assessment methods combine traditional and innovative formats, practical in application and incorporating opportunities for formative assessment and feedback to ensure students are able to achieve module outcomes effectively.
All assessments are rigorously developed in close conjunction with employers, students and academic staff and partners to ensure the appropriateness in relation to developing transferable skills relevant to business and organisations.
Specifically, at level 4 students will begin to develop the skills of producing reports, delivering presentations and other forms of communication, not only for content relevance but also with professional competency in terms of practical business output.
Students will expand upon this at levels 5 and 6, graduating with capability in the field of producing work of a professional and managerial standard, borne of innovative assessment methods.
