For the new generation of managers, change is the only consistency. This programme equips you with not only the knowledge and understanding of contemporary best practice in strategic international management, but will help develop your personal skills to prepare you for your first roles in management, or for running your own business. On this programme you will develop a good understanding of the nature of business management in a world of volatility, uncertainty, change and ambiguity. You will develop key skills, such as empathy, problem solving and creativity, which will ensure you are well placed to enter the employment market. These skills are increasingly important in a world with technology and Artificial Intelligence (AI) are now fulfilling key business activities. You will also learn about how technology is impacting business, so that you can understand how technology can underpin innovation and improvements to business and organisations.The course focuses on the ability to think critically and will enable you to analyse and evaluate solutions to complex, real-life problems. We focus on equipping you with the knowledge of contemporary management theories but, of equal importance, giving you the opportunity to apply and integrate that knowledge in live projects. A key feature of the programme is to blend both academic study and skills development in order to enhance the employability of our graduates.
