Course Content

Globalisation and Contemporary Management Issues (15 credits)

Organisations in the modern era face challenges and issues that are profoundly related to local and global scenarios. It is imperative for managers to recognise and understand the peculiarities that arise from managing a business internationally.

The module offers a clear understanding of contemporary thoughts in global management and relative issues. It covers aspects such as sustainability, climate and resource issues, corporate responsibility and ethics, social and political aspects of ownership, and changes in HR.

Digital Marketing Strategy for Innovation (15 credits)

The module aims to provide students with an in-depth knowledge of the global marketing environment and the ways to strategically enter a target market, while subsequently creating and maintaining a competitive advantage that can guarantee success for the business.

Data-driven Financial Decision Making (15 credits)

In the global environment, managers and financial decision-makers should always be aware of their impact on the organisation as well as on social matters, and their ethical responsibilities towards the community in which they operate. In order to foster this attitude, the module will provide graduate students with a clear understanding of what financial and managerial accounting is and how to properly translate this information to make an informed decision in strategic planning and control.

Applied Research Methods for Disruption (15 credits)

The course is designed to develop an understanding of the fundamentals of data presentation and data analysis that are useful in organisational decision making and in solving business problems. Students will have the opportunity to test their knowledge and skills for “in-company” project work, through the writing and presenting of reports.

Digital Strategies and Competitive Advantage in the Global Environment (15 credits)

Creating a competitive advantage is a prerequisite for the successful development of any company in any industry and country. Managers must consider a wide variety of factors, including the technology affecting their company, the macro and business environment, institutional and regulatory context and global perspective – in order to work out the appropriate strategic decisions. Inadequate knowledge and understanding of these factors can have a detrimental effect on the company.

The module focuses on the practical tools and techniques used in the decision-making process of a company to create its sustainable competitive advantage in a global context, with a particular focus on technology.

Innovation and Design Process (15 credits)

Contemporary management theories recognise the fundamental role of innovation and design as ways of thinking and analyse the business in order to gain or maintain a competitive advantage in the market. Furthermore, most of the prominent organisations in the Fortune 500 list are innovation-driven companies. Because innovation has proven to be a difficult, uncertain, and a risky matter, managers and entrepreneurs will benefit from learning how to manage innovation strategically and operationally in relation to technology, market, and processes.

Global Innovation Challenge (30 credits)

Students entering the business world need to develop certain skills and competencies to increase their practical experience. During this course, students will be encouraged to simulate the working environment through a real-life team project.

Global Innovation Project (30 credits)

The module supports and guides students towards the production of an independent piece of original business research taking the form of a business research project. Students will have the opportunity to apply their prior knowledge to real-life research questions that arise from their placement experience and will learn to undertake and critically assess business research, its impact and its contextual nature.

Managing Change through Creativity and Design Thinking (15 credits)

Managers at all levels benefit from understanding how to creatively solve problems, identify opportunities, and generate ideas that, in different ways, are innovative and produce a benefit to organisations. The module’s nature and content thrive from a deep understanding of strategic management and organisational behaviour while recognising the fundamental roles that innovation, change and creativity have in determining business success.

Knowledge Management in the Innovative Organisation (15 credits)

Recently knowledge has been the focus and a key topic in management studies. Understanding how to properly unleash the potential of intellectual capital and knowledge resources within an organisation is said to be the new competitive advantage of the modern era. The module is designed to support students to critically evaluate and analyse the different dimensions of knowledge management and how these affect the way organisations learn, store and produce knowledge.

Project Management Methodologies (15 credits)

In modern business, project management is a skill that is very much in demand across almost every department, sector, and country of operations. Managers are therefore required to appreciate the principles and methodologies offered by project management and apply them to improve the efficiency of the company, as well as its ability to be agile and adaptable through disruptions.

Leadership for Global Organisations (15 credits)

The purpose of the course is to increase one’s capacity to lead with and without authority, across boundaries, and from any political or organisational position. Students will understand that leadership is not just a matter of the individual but can be looked at through six lenses: leadership as a person, as a position, as a process, as a result, as a place, as a purpose.
