10 Credits SPRING

Aims/Description: This module focuses on the analysis of organisations and global markets from an economic perspective. The module will introduce learners to how global markets and organisations work to inform decision making and will address several different, but related, economic approaches to the management of organisations. Topics include behavioural theory, agency theory, transaction cost economics and economic contributions to strategy and decision making. This directs attention to the development of different organisational forms and the interaction of organisations with their environments, providing a coherent picture of managerial economics and a series of analytic techniques for the organisation.

Restrictions on availability: Restricted to learners on the Senior Leadership Apprenticeship Programme (Executive MBA) or the non-apprenticeship route (Executive MBA).
