Description - summary of the module content

Module description

For organisations to achieve their objectives effectively requires the involvement of managers who are responsible for planning, organising, leading, and managing resources. This module is intended to provide a foundation in the most significant issues in applied management and marketing theory and practice. The teaching of the modules emphasises the ethics of managing, how to balance the bottom line of the business with the organisation’s wider responsibilities to society and other stakeholders.  The module utilises a range of current business case studies so that concepts and theories explored can be applied to modern management practices.

For this module there is neither a requirement for prior knowledge of management and marketing, nor pre-requisites or co-requisites.  

Module aims - intentions of the module

Whilst exploring the main functional areas of business, the principles of management, culture, leadership, marketing, managing innovation, entrepreneurship, and motivation are areas of focus. The terminology of management and marketing will be presented in English and practised through listening, reading, speaking and writing.

Re-assessment notes

Deferral – if you miss an assessment for reasons judged legitimate by the Mitigation Committee, the applicable assessment will normally be deferred. See ‘Details of reassessment’ for the form that assessment usually takes. When deferral occurs, there is ordinarily no change to the overall weighting of that assessment.

Referral – if you have failed the module overall (i.e. a final overall module mark of less than 40%) you will be required to take a re-sit exam. Only your performance in this exam will count towards your final module grade. A grade of 40% will be awarded if the examination is passed.
