In this module, we’ll explore the critical role that leadership plays in setting direction, formulating plans, and implementing strategic plans into organisations. You’ll have the opportunity to reflect on the principles and context that guide strategic leadership and examine how your own skills and behaviours can contribute to your success as a leader. Plus, we’ll equip you with a range of powerful concepts and tools to conduct a full strategic analysis of an organisation.
Tackling some of the biggest and most pressing issues facing businesses on a global scale, you’ll learn how to identify and analyse critical management issues in this module. By adopting a broad range of perspectives, you will explore key issues and assess their impact on the sustainability of organisations. We’ll also equip you with the tools and knowledge that you need to diagnose common problems and develop creative solutions to these challenges, all while keeping the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals in mind.
Each module is worth 30 credits and both modules in Term 2 are mandatory.
Focusing on the Human Resource function that is essential to all businesses, this module teaches you how to critically analyse and evaluate the role and impact of human resource management and strategy on organisations, their business performance and the achievement of long-term business goals and outcomes. You will cover contemporary issues and trends in people practices and generate, justify and critically evaluate solutions for operational and strategic human resource management issues. You will also reflect on the traits, skills and behaviours of effective HR and people development practitioners and learn how you can adopt them in your own career.
This module will help you to critically analyse and evaluate the theoretical frameworks and processes applied in strategic marketing. You will discuss and reflect on a wide range of factors, including strategic aims, context, changing market environments and developments in digital marketing, that impact the development and implementation of marketing strategies. As you learn how to critically evaluate strategic marketing arguments and/or propositions, you are encouraged to make judgments that will guide the development of marketing plans and decision-making. You’ll then culminate these skills into the creation of a marketing strategy and an implementation plan.
Your Final Project module takes place in Term 3 and is worth 60 credits.
For your final project, you will need to identify a complex issue within the field of business studies, or practice, and formulate a sound research question. You will need to explain the aims and objectives for a dissertation, or a project, which is of strategic benefit to an organisation.
As part of your project you will also need to evaluate current research and scholarship in your chosen subject area, select and apply appropriate research methods, and analyse and interpret the data you have obtained through your outlined methodology. Critically examining your study’s contribution and limitations will also form part of your final project, as well as proposing recommendations in both theoretical and applied terms.
We use oral assessments, presentations, simulations, group, and individual, projects in addition to traditional assessment methods (examinations and coursework) so that you can explore and express your abilities in different ways. Assessments are not just a way of assessing whether something has been learned, but an opportunity to develop skills that will equip you in your future life and career.
When you graduate, you also receive a CMI Level 7 qualification and can apply for Chartered Manager status, the highest status that can be achieved in the management and leadership profession.
Our Personal Tutoring (PT) scheme provides additional guidance and support to students. Students have the opportunity to regularly meet with their peers and staff members in a less formal atmosphere than the classroom. PT includes a combination of group and one-to-one sessions in which students discuss their course, their experiences at Bloomsbury Institute, raise issues, ask questions and receive pastoral support.
