Business Strategy Report (N1079)

15 credits, Level 6

Spring teaching

This module provides the opportunity for you to prepare a report on the strategic position of a business or organisation (governmental or not-for-profit) of your choice. You will have the chance to integrate the skills you have developed in your previous modules into one extended research project.

The project requires you to research the strategic position (including market environment, resources and cababilities) of an organisation. Based on this analysis, you will propose a strategy for the organisation over the next five years.

The final report should reflect your research skills and understanding of previous course material. During the first two weeks of the module, you will receive research methods training, supplementing the Research Methods module in the second year.
