The course is designed to provide students with theoretical and practical perspectives on business and management issues, and to equip them to prosper within today's dynamic business environment. Our approach synthesises carefully balanced theoretical content, integrating classic research with contemporary analyses of international business topics. Active case studies developed in collaboration with our commercial and industry partners directly link theory with practice. We use business simulations at both operational and strategic levels to provide immediate feedback on decisions you have applied, which provide scope for detailed discussion of effective problem solving in a realistic and practical context.
