This subject is intended as an ‘integrative’ capstone course, and as such does not introduce to the students substantial new material; but rather, provides them with a vehicle for applying and integrating the knowledge and skills they have already acquired. In particular, groups of students will be asked to undertake an exercise that simulates the management of a firm in preparation for their transition back into the workplace. They will also be asked to reflect on an integrative activity they have undertaken during their degree.

Intended learning outcomes

On completion of this subject, students should be able to:

  • use existing financial, accounting, production and marketing data in order to develop a forward looking business plan,
  • evaluate the inflow of information to adapt and change their operating plans in response to changing circumstances.
  • use the available financial, accounting, production and marketing information to assess and diagnose the results of their decisions, and
  • cogently explain and defend their decisions.
