Revamped CIMA/ACCA MBA Module Overview:

MANAGING PEOPLE - focuses on giving students an understanding of the management and development of people within organisations.Closely aligned with the CIPD’s Professional Standards, the module also introduces you to mainstream thought on HRM/ D and develops your critical awareness of the complexity of leading, managing and developing people at work – and enables you to engage with alternative paradigms and discourses that recognise complexities and allow you to challenge the underlying assumptions associated with particular ways of thinking and practicing HRM/D.

GLOBAL MARKETING and DIGITAL BUSINESS - focuses on understanding the dynamics of global marketing – globalization, environment, culture, branding, positioning, segmentation and the increasing competitive threat – the most important factors that a global company needs to manage, integrate and exploit. This module adopts a strategic approach to the study of marketing and communication in a global context and prepares students to grasp a strong understanding of the essentials of global marketing.

BUSINESS ETHICS IN ACTION - focuses on Business Ethics providing students with a conceptual background and help them to apply models to particular business situations. The title “in action” reflects the practical orientation of this module that combines a solid theoretical foundation with accessible tools. Many case studies will be discussed to facilitate decision-making about complex situations. With this module, students can gain understanding of the business ethical dilemmas and how to address them, enabling students to perform better in their managerial roles.

MBA PROJECT including RESEARCH METHODS - is designed to introduce essential components of postgraduate research which will help you develop skills and knowledge that will contribute to your successful completion of a dissertation. You will be introduced to social science research across managerial disciplines. This module offers multiple perspectives on researching business and management, irrespective of whichever the career in business you are engaged in.

DISSERTATION - which is the core element of a Master’s degree allows you to develop your interests and apply research skills. It reinforces your independent learning by enabling you to explore your chosen topic theoretically and empirically. In some ways the dissertation is similar to other modules because it will assess your ability to produce a persuasive discussion on a relevant management or business topic. The dissertation module also differs from other modules because it requires you to put into practice your understanding of research methods.
