Programme Purpose

The programme will provide learners with in-depth understanding of all the key pillars of business and help them gain a holistic view of the interrelationships between the business functions. As such, all learners undertake mandatory modules in Management, Marketing, Finance, Law and Economics throughout the programme. In particular, the programme aims to ensure that graduates are equipped with the skills and competencies for the modern workplace. As such modules in technology, organisational behaviour and global business, are included as mandatory in the programme. Equally, the programme seeks to provide learners with the knowledge, tools and techniques to contribute to business strategy formulation, analysis and evaluation and modules in strategic management, project management and analytics are incorporated to ensure this skillset is acquired. The programme will ensure that graduates are proficient in a range of business skills and in particular are market ready and have the business acumen and skills necessary to realise a vigorous knowledge-based economy. Specifically the programme aims to develop self-aware, reflective learners that take responsibility for their own learning and demonstrate a responsibility to fellow learners; develop a range of intellectual and practical skills that will enable graduates to add-value within the work place; provide assessment and project based tasks that allows learners to apply knowledge and skills appropriately within an authentic context; provide the educational foundation that is relevant to further study and life-long learning; and create a learning environment where professional standards are expected, but at the same time recognise that learning is challenging and appropriate support is provided both by staff and fellow learners.
