Fundamentals of Business Management

This module is largely about how to co-ordinate the general management of an organisation in light of its overall business environment and in order for it to achieve its goals. 

Human Resource Management

You’ll learn many ways to streamline and smooth the processes required, along with motivational and conflict management techniques.

Marketing Management

This course helps to explain why your customers do what they do, which in turn provides a basis for your marketing strategy and mix – crucial to communicating and delivering the value your business offers. 

Financial Management

This module gives you a framework for financial planning, along with tools and techniques for budgeting, cash planning, how to apply ratio analysis to assess the health of your business unit, along with financial reporting requirements. 

Elective business management subjects

Besides the compulsory subjects listed above, you will be permitted to select two electives from the following list of electives, tailoring your programme to your interests:

Here you’ll learn about the research process and how to use computer skills to access information, alongside problem-solving – a vital skill no matter what you do for a living – and managing computer files as well as data security.

Sales Management

Every business needs a sales management function; some businesses will have a variety of them, depending on the markets they serve. In this course you will be familiarised with the major functions of sales management, the sales manager’s role and responsibilities, learn how to set sales objectives and measure sales performance, and develop the art of consultative salesmanship.

By the time you have completed it you will have a good understanding of the effect of supply and demand on operational planning and control, the relationship between capacity and inventory management, understand what to do to assess and mitigate operational risk, and understand which techniques to use to improve different kinds of operations, among other things.
