15 credits, Level 6

Autumn teaching

This module equips you for the world of work by developing your ability to understand what's going on inside an organisation through strengthening your ability to interpret business metrics (specifically operating, efficiency, financial, competitive and strategic data).

This interpretative ability will draw on the skills and information from all the modules you have studied so far. You learn through an in-depth exploration of business case studies where you will have the opportunity to look at businesses from a number of angles:

  • strategic
  • competitive,
  • operational
  • cultural
  • accounting
  • financial.
