The Business Management course offered, is a challenging and dynamic discipline in the individuals and societies sector. The role of businesses is to produce and sell goods and services that meet human needs and wants by organising resources. Profitability, forward-thinking, and sustaining successful business operations in a competitive landscape characterises most business organisations.
Aims and Objectives
The course allows students to develop their understanding of interdisciplinary concepts from a business management perspective via the exploration of six concepts underpinning the subject (Change, Culture, Ethics, Globalisation, Innovation and Strategy).
Business Management studies business functions, management processes and decision-making in contemporary contexts of strategic uncertainty. It analyses how business decisions influence and impact upon its stakeholders, both internally and externally. Business Management also explores how individuals and groups interact within an organisation, how they may be successfully managed, and how they can ethically optimise the use of resources in a world with increasing scarcity and concern for sustainability. Business Management therefore aims to develop the students’ appreciation both for our individuality and our collective purposes.
The Diploma Programme Business Management course is designed to develop students’ knowledge and understanding of business management theories. Students learn to analyse, discuss and evaluate business activities at local, national and international levels.
The course covers a range of organisations from all sectors, as well as the socio-cultural and economic contexts in which those organisations operate. Emphasis is placed on strategic decision-making and the operational business functions of human resource management, finance and accounts, marketing and operations management. Links between the topics are central to the course, as this integration promotes a holistic overview of business management.
The Business Management programme offered allows students to reach beyond the classroom and their immediate school community to build intellectual and practical connections to the wider society.
