Minor in Management Studies
Available for students starting in September 2017.
If you choose a Minor in Management Studies you will study the enormous impact organisations have on all of us, whether we are customers, employees or, more generally, citizens. We are born in, educated in, work in, play in, are governed by, obtain goods and services from, receive medical treatment in and die in organisations. And these organisations are all managed to a greater or lesser degree.
Our Minor in Management Studies offers you a programme of learning which will expose you to the realities of management and the managerial experience across this wide range of organisations. The course covers the relevance of both management theory and practice for the solution of problems in international, national and local contexts. It also explores situations in which management has failed and in which management failures have actually contributed to social, economic, political or environmental problems.
In your first year you will be introduced to some of the key concepts of management and management practice through the Foundations of Management module. This will give you a sound basis on which to build in subsequent semesters. The second module, Introduction to Marketing, will give you a broad overview of one of the main subjects within management studies.
In your second year you will study the fundamental principles of behaviour of individuals and groups in organisations and develop your appreciation of the potential for and the limitations of, managerial influence on organisational processes. You will also learn how to conduct research that has the potential to inform practical organisational decisions.
Choose two option modules from:
- Operations Management
- International Marketing Communications
- International Finance
- Corporate Social Responsibility: Theory and Practice
- Stock Market Analysis and Equity Valuation
- Global Branding (Theory and Practice)
- Crisis Management
- Human Resource Management
- Managing Diversity
In your final year you will transition from studying a broad overview of a subject to improving your critical thinking skills. The module in the first term will further extend your understanding of key debates in and issues around strategy. The second term module examines business from an international context.
Modules shown represent choices available to current students. The range of modules available and the content of any individual module may change in future years.
There are no specific entry requirements for this minor.
