10 Credits SPRING

Pre-requisites: Entry requirements of MBA including 3 years work experience.

Aims/Description: The module covers strategic issues and methods, and organisational arrangements relevant to how managers can develop business strategies that can achieve business growth within ever changing international markets and business environments. The task of delivering business growth in fast moving environments requires that companies explore new opportunities whilst exploiting exisiting product markets. This simultaneous activity demands new strategic and organisational approaches by managers. Companies need the ability to use several different strategy development methods as well as to disperse the strategic thinking function through the company in order to remain competitive and adaptable. Building upon knowledge gained in MGT6050 the module explores the issues that these new strategic and organisational demands raise and the theoretical and practical concepts proposed to help managers address them.
