Modules

Unit 12: Organisational Behaviour

The aim of this unit is to develop an understanding of the influence culture, politics and power have on the behaviour of others in an organisational context. You will be in a position to apply the principles of organisational behaviour to a variety of business situations.

Unit 26: Supply Chain Management

The aim of this unit is to enhance understanding of the nature, role and contribution of supply chain management to a business. The growth of global business has led to organisations becoming increasingly reliant on logistics and supply chain management in order to keep up with the demands of a global economy. You will explore the purpose of supply chain management and its benefits to an organisation, their customers and their suppliers.

Unit 35: Developing Individuals, Teams and Organisations

The aim of this unit is to provide you with the opportunity to appreciate that developing knowledge and skills to achieve high performance is a cross organisation activity. You will recognise that their own professional development is just one route to improving the performance of those teams and

organisations in which they work. They will also gain an awareness of the context in which learning takes place and how development needs are linked to learning interventions aimed at supporting an organisation’s strategy

Unit 41: Brand Management

The unit is designed and structured to give you an end-to-end understanding of brand management. It explores a range of tools and techniques that can be employed to maximise brand value, while looking at a number of case studies that contextualise information within real-world examples to aid understanding of how effective brand management can be achieved.

Unit 38: Customer Value Management

This unit is designed to enhance your knowledge and understanding of why it is important for marketers to enhance and manage the value of the customer interactions. You will learn the underpinning theories and frameworks, and will also be expected to relate these to real-world examples, including their own personal experiences.

Unit 18: Global Business Environment

The aim of this unit is to explore the wider position some organisations have in the global environment. You will appreciate the complexities of operating in a global environment, and this will enable them to offer greater breadth and depth to an organisation’s current or aspirational global presence.

Unit 11: Research Project

This unit is assessed by a Pearson-set assignment. You will choose your own project based on a theme provided by Pearson (this will change annually). The project must be related to your specialist pathway of study. This will enable you to explore and examine a relevant and current topical aspect of business in the context of the business environment and their chosen specialist pathway.

Assessment methods

Students are required to put in at least 6 hours of self-study time each week.

The overall method of assessment is 100% coursework, including some practical assessments.

Post-six month graduation stats:

This is from the Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education Survey, based on responses from graduates who studied the same subject area here.

It offers a snapshot of what grads went on to do six months later, what they were earning on average, and whether they felt their degree helped them obtain a 'graduate role'. We calculate a mean rating to indicate if this is high, medium or low compared to other universities.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
