Course Modules

Personal & Business Transformation:

Become an effective leader, as you develop your self-awareness and identify your leadership style. You’ll recognise how this impacts those around you, and how it contributes to organisational culture, motivation, and overall future success.

Ethical Leadership:

Discover the importance of ethics, and how to set the moral and cultural tone of an organisation. You’ll evaluate your own practice, and will have the opportunity to explore ethical dilemmas, reflecting on your own experiences of ethical conflict in leadership situations.

Financial Management:

You’ll develop the skills to access and process the data which underpins decision-making, strategy, and business proposals, whilst considering the role of management accounting in growing a business. You will evaluate how budgeting and absorption costing impact budget and pricing decisions, and learn recovery tactics for when things go wrong.

Reporting Corporate Performance:

You’ll examine and evaluate finance sources, learn to access capital markets, and reduce costs by structuring effectively. Explore the many disciplines imposed on companies by financial markets, and discover the importance of analysing financial information in the merger and acquisition process.

Implementing Strategy:

Learning to shape the vision, values, purpose, and mission is crucial to success. You’ll consider sustainability and ethical practice, in the context of decision-making. You will learn to apply these theories to a range of business problems.

Sustaining the Business:

Develop the ability to plan long-term growth strategies against turbulent external factors. Using management models as a framework for understanding, you will explore a broad range of case studies, and present your findings with regard to your own organisation.

Research Project:

This vital project gives you a chance to research an area of your choice, related to the programme theme, and develop your critical abilities. You’ll create a research proposal, choose between conventional dissertation, or academic article and presentation, and then apply all of your knowledge from the programme, with the opportunity to link your research to your actual work needs.
