Award in Principles of Management

The Award in Principles of Management module seeks to provide students with the skills necessary for an entrepreneur or senior executive within an SME to understand the role of management and to master effective management skills to lead the SME organisation. The course focuses on the four core functions of management and how these can be developed and customised to be as sophisticated or complex as the organisation in which they are to be used. It seeks to identify best practice and provide an overview of current management practices within SME organisations. The course enables students to critically review such practices enabling them to adopt, adapt and apply such practices within a particular SME organisation. The focus throughout the programme is the importance of developing a culture of management in an SME organisation that is based on respect. Respect can only be earned where the focus is on building credibility and integrity through consistent and fair management behaviour.
