Teaching Rationale And Relationship

This module aims to introduce students to some key concepts relating to business management and control. Lectures are used to explain the issues, and to introduce theory, concepts and techniques. The current size of the year group does facilitate a more interactive approach during lectures with some discussion of the material covered and issues raised. Students will have the opportunity to develop their understanding and judge their progress in these sessions. Reading is required to support the module and is essential to developing a rounded view of the material.
