Module Outline

The module aims to enable students to develop business and management skills and to capture an integrated view of their learning across their MBA programme.

It also builds specifically on Media Training and three Preparatory Sessions. It combines substantive lectures; ‘Business Briefings’ in the form of practitioner presentations pertinent to the Case; and experiential learning through a ‘live’ Case involving group work.

Key Words: Integrative Learning; Inter-Disciplinary Learning; Sustainability; Stakeholders; Entrepreneurial Creativity.

Reading List

Two relatively slim and readable books inform this module:

Freeman, R. Edward, Harrison, Jeffrey S. and Wicks, Andrew C. (2007) Managing for Stakeholders: Survival, Reputation and Success Yale University Press.

Stead, W. Edward and Jean Garner Stead (2009) Management for a Small Planet Greenleaf 3rd Edition (an earlier, more text-book style, version is Stead, W. Edward and Jean Garner Stead (2004) Sustainable Strategic Management ME Sharpe, Armonk New York, London England).

Further readings will be provided for each Session as appropriate.
