  • Overview

    The ability to think lucidly and critically is one of the most important facets which distinguishes professional practice from other forms of work. This module aims to introduce the practice of critical thinking to students in order to ensure that the broad knowledge which is usually received as part of an undergraduate degree is complemented with an ability to think deeply, reflexively and critically about the knowledge they encounter. Particular emphasis will be placed on the practicalities of critical thinking, as business graduates typically will work in competitive, fast-paced environments which call for an advanced, well developed level of critical ability.
