Particular attention will be paid to organisation culture, conflict and the management of change, and to the relationship of national culture to ways of doing business.

Accounting for Decision Makers
Enables students to evaluate the financial situation of their organisations and compare it to that of other organisations, as well as provide the tools for the effective evaluation of capital expenditure.

Marketing
Provides students with a practical understanding of how the dynamics of the market, the business environment, consumer trends and behaviour and the organisation’s own capabilities impact upon its ability to develop and deliver profitable customers propositions. An emphasis is placed on the development of appropriate marketing strategies and plans.

Strategic Management
Provides insights into the factors influencing the formulation and implementation of strategy. These factors will encompass those external to the firm, such as market structure and demographic changes, and those internal, such as style of leadership and organisational culture. The module also aims to facilitate the understanding of issues arising out of the process of internationalization. The students will be able to take these into account when recommending strategies appropriate for a variety of circumstances.

Financial Management 
The aim of this module is to provide a critical understanding and application of the main concepts and models used to manage an international business from the financial perspective. It also aims to enable the student to critically evaluate international business opportunities and assess the impact of the financial dimensions within a dynamic global market in order to be able to make astute investment decision.

Dissertation
The dissertation is an essential part of the process of achieving a master’s level. It will provide the students with the opportunity to work independently and develop their ability to make critical and evaluative judgments. Students will specialize in an area of their choice but will be expected to draw upon a major theme of the taught part of the MBA and relate this to research. Using primary data, they will be guided by a personal tutor throughout the process. It is expected that this will provide an opportunity to integrate the course with practice, developing the ability to be an effective reflective practitioner. The dissertation should demonstrate that the student is able to produce work that is relevant in practice, particularly at the strategic level, and has an academic standing at the master’s level.
