Module content and teaching

Principal aims

The educational objectives of the module are: to enable you to think outside tight subject-specific boundaries; to develop a more integrated understanding of business and management issues and problems; to prepare you for real -world decision-making where choices are uncertain and where preferences are not clearly ordered on simple rational grounds.

Principal learning outcomes

"By the end of the module you should be able to: draw on different skill sets to analyse and solve problems that require a range of understandings and insights; demonstrate more ""connected"" ways of approaching and understanding problems."

Timetabled teaching activities

The core teaching method is class discussion. You will be placed in a class of about 20 students with a member of staff who acts as class facilitator, and each class is in turn divided into 5 syndicate groups. Additionally, a small number of lectures introduces the module and provides guidance and feedback during the year.
