Students will examine the functional operations of business and the environments in which it operates. This may include analysing the economic, social, political, legal, technological and ethical influences on contemporary businesses. Students will also examine the viewpoints of internal and external stakeholders.

  • Business Communications | MGT502
    This subject introduces students to the concepts of business communications and transferrable academic skills.  This subject presents an analysis of the types of communication processes, which occur in the internal and external business environment, including an examination of the theoretical underpinnings of communication in business.  Emphasis is placed on writing skills, reports and presentations and on using technology to communicate.  The subject introduces students to research skills, information literacy, critical analysis, writing and language techniques.  The aims of this subject are to provide knowledge and skills needed for success in Higher Education, to help students manage their own success and to assist them in reaching their academic potential.  
  • Management, People and Teams | MGT600
    Understanding organisational behaviour, politics, dynamics and environments and how they impact on the role and legitimacy of the management function is the core of this subject.  This subject helps individuals understand the constraints they face as managers and emerging leaders and how they can develop strategies to leverage advantages and overcome constraints and barriers in their organisations.  The subject also focusses on developing some of the advanced communication skills necessary in management and leadership roles, and the ability of the individual to influence others.  The subject introduces students to the concept of naturally occurring data and qualitative analysis.  This subject also focuses on the development of knowledge and skills to enable students to identify, analyse and make effective decisions to resolve people-related issues in organisations, facilitate employee development, and develop and sustain effective teams in complex, diverse, and increasingly global operating environments.
  • Financial Management | FIN600
    This subject is focused on how to use accounting and financial information for decision-making purposes. It is designed for the leader/manager who will be using, rather than producing accounting and financial information. This subject also addresses the various types of financial decisions that leaders must make, and the strategies necessary to anticipate the alternatives, evaluate the advantages and disadvantages of each and recognise the tradeoffs inherent in each alternative. The objective of this subject is for students to learn how to apply accounting and finance theory and principles to the analysis of important business problems, further developing their skills at using numerical analysis and research to support a line of argument.
  • Strategic Marketing | MKTG6003_SM

    In this module you will be introduced to the concept of marketing, understood as a fundamental aspect of any company strategy. We will also discuss Strategic and Operational Marketing within the field of sports. Throughout the module we will review various theoretical concepts and find practical applications within the sports industry. This material will also include a wealth of real examples which will allow you to understand and enjoy sports marketing.

    The Marketing module provides students with a basic understanding of the relationship and impact of marketing on the company's overall strategy. We will review concepts such as segmentation and positioning, both essential to defining the company's business.

    Special emphasis will be placed on market research as a process necessary for decision making on an ongoing basis: from the time of defining the business model upon completion of market and competitor analysis, through the time of developing concrete marketing strategies upon subsequent analysis of results and the development and adaptation of new tactics. The classic operational marketing tools will also be reviewed and adapted to the sports industry, placing special emphasis during the specialization on the sections on communication, branding, new media and sports sponsorship.

  • Dynamic Leadership | MGT601

    Leadership in modern organisations is a way of thinking and behaving.  It is not necessarily a position in a hierarchy.  Leadership is a process of energising, influencing and motivating others: up, down, sideways and diagonally.  Becoming an effective leader requires self-awareness, self-management and a strong set of interpersonal communication skills, a set of capabilities that are often described as Emotional Intelligence (EQ).  In addition, effective leaders think and act strategically, they build a climate for creativity and innovation, and are culturally sensitive and comfortable with ambiguity. 

    This subject focuses on developing your leadership capability and not leadership as a theoretical concept that applies to other people.  It helps you explore your own leadership development and self-image, using the techniques of reflective research and supported by a mentoring partner.  It guides you through the preparation of plan for your continued leadership and professional development that is consistent with your personal values, anchored by the academic literature and enables you to be authentic, confident and resilient in leading productive work places for the future.

    Dynamic Leadership provides learning at the cognitive or intellectual level and at the affective or emotional level.  It develops explicit knowledge of leadership (know-what) and the often-neglected tacit knowledge (know-how).
  • Sports Marketing | SPM610

    In an ever globalised world, where the greatest sport events are now followed by millions of people around the world, managing and distributing broadcasting rights is a highly professional business where sport agencies are becoming increasingly required for the added value they are able to generate to the product conceived by federations and event organisers, optimising audience, exposure and revenue, using segmenting distribution and brand positioning in collaboration with television broadcasters, marketing agencies, federations and event organisers.

    Every day companies are more aware of the importance of communication in business strategy to meet the world’s demands. Pitching the right message at the right time is paramount in branding and therefore in the company’s value. Regarding the internal performance or employee performance, the adequate flow of information proves the functioning and creates a greater emotional bond between the staff and the company. Sports companies, or companies related to the sports industry, must be particularly aware of communication, understanding it as part of their strategy plan and using the values in sports as the base of their projects.

    Finally, the communication department, as well as all the other departments, should have a contingency plan prepared to respond effectively in the event of a crisis situation. Avoiding improvisations that may negatively affect the brand’s value built over time. It is difficult to create a brand image, but it can literally take only a few minutes to destroy it.

  • Business Decision Analytics | MGT602
    Today's decisions have to be made quickly, individually and in groups, with what often appears to be ambiguous or too much data. How does one select, observe and distil the most pertinent data sets to make decisions that will positively impact tomorrow's firms and communities? This subject engages students in the nuances of data collection, how to filter data and how to use it most effectively in decision-making. The subject develops the student's qualitative and quantitative research skills, and digital literacy.

Communication skills will be a part of the course when doing the necessary work, and teamwork will help students get to know each other better and to create a good network of professional contacts. The awareness of ethical values is relevant to this module, as it is very important to approach environmental issues and regulations during any construction with an ethical conscience, as this consciousness is necessary today in any development.
  • Residence: Sport Facility Operations | RSO609

  • Economic Principles and Decision Making | ECON6000
    The 21st century business professional operates in an increasingly complex, competitive, turbulent and international environment and, as such, professionals must leverage sound economic reasoning to evaluate and resolve business problems in real time.

    We recommend you complete this subject towards the beginning of your MBA. The unit challenges you to think differently about your organisational experiences, to look at them through a variety of lenses, and to explore different ways by which you can influence people within the organisation and have an impact through your function as a manager. A key skill underpinning this is the ability to receive and respond to feedback, to look at data in a number of different ways to find alternative meanings and create different patterns of behaviour. The book ‘Images of Organisation’ explores the notion of the organisation through a range of metaphors; by exploring these metaphors you can gain different insights into your organisation and start to play with different interpretations and understandings of how we experience the world.
