MC0021 International Strategic Management
The International Strategic Management module provides an introduction to the main theoretical and practical aspects of international strategic management from strategic vision to actions. The intent is to familiarize students with the paradox of globalisation and localisation perspectives typical of European countries. The general aim is to develop student awareness of the elements that shape business, such as economic, cultural, and political forces. The strategic management module therefore provides a global business perspective while emphasising the importance of remaining connected at local level as well.
M0014 International Strategic Marketing
The International Strategic Marketing module aims to develop both a theoretical and an applied understanding of international marketing and create awareness of the global issues facing international and global organisations. The module also aims to enable students to acquire knowledge in developing marketing strategies for countries other than their own and, thereby, to extend their range of marketing understanding both to deal with international marketing situations in non-domestic markets and the impact of international competitors on the domestic market.
MC0019Human Resource Management
The Human Resources Management module assesses the human resource management function. It develops an awareness of the strategic significance of key processes and functions of the HR aspect of an organization. It explores the role of the HR function in contributing to organizational competitive advantage. It facilitates an understanding of the processes and functions of the HR role and its significant role in achieving its corporate objectives. It creates a heightened awareness of the employee as an individual and a source of intellectual capital in addition to generating an appreciation of how HR initiatives can maximize their performance.
MC0018 International Project Management
Project Management is a rapidly evolving discipline that spans all business contexts. Many organisations now employ specialist Project Managers to control projects involving extensive capital expenditure. However, most managers will at some point in their career be required to draw upon their knowledge of Project Management techniques to control schedules, resources, budgets and risks. The aim of this module is to introduce the principles, techniques and practice of Project Management. In doing so, illustrations of its application in several contexts are provided.
This module consists of the internship based activities as demanded by the company in collaboration with ESE. This module also aims to tie these activities to the courses taken by students being reflective on their experiences in relation to their taught courses and to document their findings over this connectivity. The combined efforts of work placement, ESE and student aims helps to develop team awareness in the students. In addition, the module aims to provide students wishing to pursue a career with relevant work experience and provide a solid work foundation from which to undertake further employment in the selected industry. More generally the module empowers students to confront the knowledge and theory acquired during the previous phase with operating practices, structures, systems, project and standards, thus gaining specific professional skills.
