Coordinator(s)Dr Leah Kaye


This unit looks at a number of current issues in business, in order to provide a broader perspective than might be achieved by narrow specialisation in either particular units or research reports. Current issues have been selected for their topicality, appropriateness and mix of theory and practice.


The learning goals associated with this unit are to:

  • explore in-depth current issues in business administration
  • consider how current issues contribute to competitive advantage
  • engage in the debate over issues which are often intractable and determine how these affect business now or in the future
  • examine the literature in-depth to assist in better understanding management roles.
