These modules are delivered over a period of 4 weeks (1 week each module) and students will be assessed after the end of each module/week to ensure understanding and student’s readiness to join their respective Masters programme.

  • Business Environment and Strategic Planning

This module provides a grounding in the concepts and theories related to strategic planning, evaluation, and execution. It introduces the importance of understanding the business environment and establishes the relationship between planning and business success.

  • Understanding Customers

Marketers today are increasingly challenging the discipline’s reliance upon the traditional four P’s of marketing as a way of satisfying customers and building profitable customer relationships. This module aims to develop students’ understanding of customers and how organisations can effectively provide both products and services to customers and utilise the marketing function by applying ideas from relationship marketing theories.

  • Managing People

This module focuses on human resource responsibilities such as recruiting and selection, employee training and development, managing individual employee performance, remuneration and awards. It also covers the procedures for increasing productivity in the workplace, as well as the ability of employers to terminate employees' employment.

  • Managerial Finance

This module introduces students to major financial concepts; principles and analytical tools of business fund management; and planning their use in making well-reasoned decisions.
