  • Overview

    This course reviews the nature of management and the different kinds of organisation that managers manage. It
    emphasises that management is about making decisions, and doing so on the basis of timely and accurate
    information. Where this information comes from and how it is summarised using quantitative procedures is
    explained. Such information is used for diagnosing business problems, planning business activities, and controlling
    their implementation. The notion of financial control, for example through accounting procedures, is emphasised.
    Students also get ?hands on? experience of commercially available spread sheets, and are introduced to business
    case studies in small group tutorials.
