HR Policies and Practices
Organisations focus on people. As the 21st century begins to unfold, the focus on human resources (HR) within an organisation has never been more critical. HR is a critical success factor for organisations looking to become more effective, focused, and competitive. Since the mid-1990's, organisations have been going through rapid and fundamental changes in the way they do business. Whether one reviews these changes in terms of globalisation, reengineering, TQM, or downsizing, there is more and more evidence to suggest that focusing on human resources within an organisation can provide one of the keys to success.

International HR and Leadership
This unit aims to develop your understanding of the impact of globalization on HRM and introduce you to various strategic issues and practices that need to be addressed by international organisations from a leadership perspective. The relevant academic literature tends to fall into three main areas: HRM and corporate strategy; cross-cultural management; and comparative business systems. With references to particular HR practices students will see that IHRM is a balance between meeting needs for organisational integration and adapting to the local political, cultural and economic contexts.

Strategic Marketing
This unit integrates the "tools" and the framework that practitioners will use in applying marketing. The understanding of marketing requires the understanding of its concepts but the successful application of it requires the ability of analysis, evaluation and synthesis; analysis of the situation, evaluation of it and the synthesis of a solution. Furthermore, effective marketing application requires the ability to decide and implement under conditions of uncertainty and restrictions of resources.
In this unit the students will be expected to develop their analytical, critical and synthetic abilities regarding the elements of the marketing environment. They will be expected to draw on their knowledge of different aspects of marketing and provide complete solutions to marketing problems. Such solutions will be expected to be applied in different sectors of economic activity. Back to top

The dissertation represents a piece of individual and original research based on an approved topic of the student’s choice related to the course and selected in consultation with tutors. The term ‘originality’ here does not necessarily imply that the dissertation will develop new theoretical insights or models but that it clearly demonstrates the development of new insights and knowledge in the candidates own mind and work.
