20 Credits AUTUMN

Aims/Description: This unit takes the key themes and techniques that were introduced in MGT141, Introduction to Financial Management, and locates them in their institutional and intellectual setting to enable students to reflect critically on understandings of financial institutions and phenomena. The resulting understanding and skills of critique will enhance students' capabilities to reflect on the more specialist bodies of knowledge encountered in financial management and finance units in subsequent semesters. The unit uses a combination of conventional lectures to familiarise students with ideas and tutorials in which students are encouraged to show their understanding of and critically evaluate content of lectures.
