Module overview

The module is designed to introduce the main elements of individual and organisational behaviour and human resource (HR) practices in organisations, and therefore focuses on people management. In particular, the module provides a context for you to appreciate the complexities of managing people and organisations in the 21st century. The content of this module is focused on the challenges of managing individuals, teams, groups and organisations, by examining a variety of issues inherent in modern organisations and, importantly, the skills that managers require to deal with them. The module also calls for significant reflection on your own skills and career development, since a critical part of the MBA programme is to learn to manage yourself and other people in a work-based environment. During the module you will receive assessments of your personality type and team interaction style. You will also attend a one-day team-building event and a one-day organisational simulation exercise.
