Course overview

You will study a range of modules including the Business Environment, Business Decision making, Leadership and Management, Strategic Management as well as the chance to develop a business plan and complete a research project (dissertation). In addition, you will undertake personal and academic skills development.

In the Personal and Academic Development module, 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.
