This course introduces students to the knowledge and skills required to successfully manage organisations and people in a global economy, based on contemporary research and practice. The course is designed to provide strong foundations for the development of future organisational leaders and managers who will be able to successfully respond to complex and turbulent environments, promote and sustain competitive advantage, ensure ethical and social responsibility in business practice and decision making, and manage changing social, political and technological factors both inside and outside the organisation, in an increasingly global and diverse workplace. Topics include: the role of organisations in modern societies, sustainability and corporate social responsibility, the importance of organisational leadership, power and networks, sources of conflict, problem solving, group motivation and behaviour, as well as professional skills.
