  • Everyday sustainability for business
    Every business needs to have a robust sustainability programme – customers prefer it, investors like it, staff want it and society demands it. But often sustainability as practised is a cost centre and this puts pressure on organisation's good intentions as budgets are often tight.  This module offers an alternative approach to everyday sustainability by making it pay for more than itself in everyday practice. It requires no knowledge of rocket science or a deep enthusiasm for “green” thinking. All it requires is a desire to succeed – both as an individual and as an organisation.

Supplementary content includes communications and marketing, rewards and world-class analysis techniques.

Teaching and learning

The core areas of study are based on the following key themes:

Each of these four themes is informed by six strands of subject specialist knowledge: Economics, Accounting and Finance, Human Resource Management, Operations and Project Management, Marketing and Leadership and Strategic Management. The delivery of the modules is sequential so that you're able to apply the latest managerial theories to a real life situation in a holistic approach from the outset.

For example, under the first module-Inside the Modern Organisation – the case study is used so that the participant can address the key issues across the various disciplinary streams.
