Modules

Business Ethics and Responsible Management

This module introduces you to theories and tools for how to think ethically about business and business practice. Almost every day you see examples in the media of businesses, and business people, that ‘behave badly’. But what is it to behave badly – is it breaking the law? Or is it transgressing some ‘rule’ on what is acceptable behaviour? And if it is the latter, how do (indeed can) we agree what the ‘rules’ are and what ‘good behaviour’ is? You will be thinking about, and debating, what it means to be a responsible manager in this module. You will do this by critically exploring the moral and ethical challenges in managing organisations and you will examine how managers, who are both under pressure to act in a more socially responsible and sustainable manner, and to hit performance targets, can approach their work through ethical thinking. You will look at how changing social attitudes and values have made organisations question their obligations to their direct stakeholders, as well as to society.  You will be introduced to some concepts that will challenge your thinking such as what is a business for, who is the business run on behalf of and what responsibility do you as an individual have within the organisation to stay true to your values? Each week we will challenge you to define how you would act as an ethical leader.

Learning Outcome

Knowledge

  • You will be able to understand the importance of individual and organisational ethical and social responsibility.

Skills

 

  • You will be able to apply ethical decision making and responsible management to a range of situations and demonstrate criticality (independent thinking) in the evaluation and synthesis of information relating to the discipline or its practice.
  • You will be able to present the findings of your analysis in a professional or academic style.

Sales, Advertising and PR

Advertising, sales and PR are critical tools for effective marketing communications. The communication, engagement and activation of customers whether B2B or B2C is critical for SMEs as well as large organisations. This module will delve more deeply into relevant models, concepts and practices whilst also contextualising them within the wider portfolio of our Marketing Communications degree.

This module brings together:  communications planning and strategy, Advertising, PR, paid, owned and earned media and sales techniques, measurement techniques, global media trends in order to engage with audiences and influencers, carry out evaluation taking into account ethical and legal considerations. In doing so it builds on from Principles of Marketing (Level 4) and from Strategic Digital Communications, Branding, Digital Marketing, Project Management and Consumer Behavior at level 5 and complements other final modules such as Corporate Strategy, Ethics and Contemporary Issues in Marketing Communications. It will also scaffold students as they take on either the Dissertation or the Consultancy Project.

 

Learning Outcome

Knowledge

  • You will be able to develop and demonstrate deeper, critical understanding of key concepts across Marcom and sales disciplines and integrated marketing communication theory applicable to customers  (B2C and B2B) and organisations in complex situations.

Skills

  • You will use your critical understanding of communication to identify communication objectives, needs, analyse the customer and market context and pitch a relevant marketing communication mix that can engage and activate a target audience taking into account ethical considerations.

Business Management Dissertation (Part 1)

The Business and Management Dissertation and Business Readiness module is an essential component in allowing the student to meet the goals that underpin the degree programme. It consists of an individual student led investigation into an applied business problem or issue selected by the student. The dissertation is an individual piece of work that presents a thorough and critical review of literature relevant to the research area under consideration.

Dissertation is also a research project which tests the independent research skills and it employs gathering a first hand empirical data OR using secondary data – both options are feasible, both come with their own specific challenges. Finally, while dissertation is a piece of academic work that will draw on existing theory and practice, it should also make sense to a business practitioner. It will have academic references like a good essay or journal article and may make recommendations as to how to solve a business problem.

The short research proposal which constitutes a summative assessment in Part 1 of this module requires developing a clear outline for research which will be undertaken in Part 2.

 

Learning Outcome

Knowledge

  • You will be able to plan how you will conduct a dissertation based on your own area of investigation which will consolidate your in depth knowledge of business and management or of the specialism of your business degree and its relationship to the wider organisation.

Skills

  • You will be able to identify and outline an appropriate methodology you will use to conduct an investigation, the results of which, through synthesis and evaluation, address a problem related to your degree discipline and/or its practice; plan which range of sources of information you will draw upon to support the investigation and which procedures and techniques will be appropriate to the analysis of a complex business situation.
  • You will be able to plan how you will demonstrate criticality (independent thinking) in the evaluation and synthesis of information relating to the discipline and/or its practice. You will be able to present your plans/proposal in a professional or academic style.

Applied Corporate Strategy

This module will give you a clear understanding of what Strategy is all about and how organisations develop it. You will also learn how to apply the essential concepts and tools of strategy that will be useful in your business career whichever sector you choose. Main topics revolve around strategic position of organisations, the concept of competitive advantage (how to gain and sustain competitive advantage for longer) and evaluation of business strategies. After a closer look at the business and corporate levels of strategy, the module ends with selected aspects of implementation focused on culture. Throughout this module, the emphasis is on application rather than critical discussion of covered models and frameworks.

During the seminars you will apply critical analysis of real-life cases to address a range of strategic problems. In this way, you will develop commercial awareness and recognise drivers for business success. You will also have the opportunity to work with others and communicate your views. Formative assessment of these seminar cases will help in preparing the final assessment task.  

 

Learning Outcome

Knowledge

  • You will be able to develop an in depth knowledge of corporate strategy within the context of the organisation’s markets and commercial sustainability

Skills

  • You will be able to utilise a wide range of frameworks and techniques to the analysis of complex business situations to inform corporate strategy; and demonstrate criticality (independent thinking) in the evaluation and synthesis of information.
  • You will be able to present the findings of your analysis in an academic style

Global Marketing

This module will provide you with practical and valuable marketing skills that can be deployed in a globalizing world.  The module responds to frequent calls for more UK small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) to grow via export and cross border partnerships to improve the UK’s balance of trade in goods. This need has become especially acute for the successful transition to a post-EU membership economy.

This challenge presents a real opportunity for graduate level employment in commercial organisations seeking to capture new foreign markets. Students work independently to research and develop a customized marketing plan addressed to the CEO of a UK SME of the student’s own choice.  Marketing in an international context is a highly valued  skill  and  likely  to  be  essential  for  all  types  of careers in  a  rapidly  globalising  world. This module completes your journey towards becoming a Roehampton Business Graduate.
