Aims and objectives

Form 2023 - This unit replaces MGT10001
This unit provides students with the foundational knowledge and skills concerning the role and functions of management. These frameworks support a critical analysis of individual or organisational operations and performance in the light of business opportunities and pressures, societal expectations and environmental contingencies. These insights enable students to identify their role as future managers, and to map their contribution to creating value at both an individual and organisational level.

Unit Learning Outcomes (ULO)
On successful completion of this unit students will be able to:
1. Describe and apply foundational managerial concepts and skills in complex business environments
2. Work together effectively in teams
3. Design creative solutions to management problems and advocate for their implementation
4. Identify and describe how managers monitor the effectiveness of employees, work groups, and organisations
