Value: 20 credits (10 ECTS)
One of the central features of modern management is that theories and practices continue to evolve and this creates new understandings of the management task.
The module deals primarily with values and the conceptualisation of management practices. Issues such as ethics, social responsibility, managing with a range of critical and conceptual modes of discourse, and managing across cultures are therefore the prime areas of the module.
This module is designed to provide students with the critical tools and mindset to analyze and identify responses to such challenges, regardless of their nature or of the imperatives and fashions that drive them.
On completion of this module the successful student will be able to critique the application of concepts of management discourses, critical management and related approaches, cross-cultural management, ethics, organisational governance, corporate social responsibility in management.
You will also critically assess the challenges of managing with diversity of thought as much as of tangible difference and in managing across diverse types of organisations.
