PROGRAMME SPECIFICATION

This document describes Honours Degree programmes in Business and Management (including Year in Business),

and Management degrees with specialist pathways. For Combined and Joint Honours Degree programmes, please

also refer to the equivalent document(s) for the other subject(s). This specification is valid for new entrants from September 2015

The aims of all Honours Degree programmes in Management are:

 to provide an intellectually challenging and relevant education which will equip students with the analytical competence, knowledge base, critical capabilities, and personal and technical skills required for future roles in business, the public sector, and society and for further study and doctoral research;

 to combine academic and practical insights into the subject of Management within an international and comparative context;

 to reflect the dynamic nature of the business world in the international environment;

 to provide a learning environment informed by the research expertise of academic staff;

 to develop students’ lifelong learning skills, and instill and improve a broad range of transferable personal and technical skills;

 to provide for integration between theory and practice by a variety of means including, for example, work-based experience or placement, with input from external business-related visitors.

The majority of programmes are delivered in three stages, each of which comprises one year of full-time study during which the student must follow courses to the value of four units (one unit is equivalent to 30 national credits).

Programmes which incorporate a year in business are delivered in four stages with stage three consisting of work experience of between nine and twelve months, either in business or for an organisation in the public or not-for-profit sectors, for which students take one unit (30 credits). Programmes which combine management with a language as an equal element, are delivered in four stages with stage three consisting of a year spent abroad, for which students take units equalling two units (60 credits).

Management is a broad-based academic subject and a field of study with practical implications offering the chance to develop related personal and technical skills. The aim of a programme in Management is not to produce students who are fully-fledged managers, since this can only occur with genuine management experience. The curriculum is based around a progressive ‘spine’ of mandatory courses, which reflect the variety of perspectives (institutional, comparative, international, critical and strategic) that inform an understanding of Management. The degree structures are progressive, allowing students to move from foundation courses to more critical or specialist courses, while maintaining a flexible set of options. A wide range of courses is offered to ensure that students appreciate the diverse, interdisciplinary nature of management and also gain or reinforce a range of conceptual, technical, quantitative and personal skills.

Stage one provides a foundation for advanced and independent study through establishing a common platform of essential knowledge and skills.

In stage two there is an even greater emphasis on independent learning and students build upon their foundation knowledge for the advanced study of key management functions, their role within organisations, and their relationship to overall strategic management.

In stage three (stage 4 for Year in Business students) students select specialist options which give the opportunity to develop particular skill sets, to deepen understanding of core management functions and to extend their knowledge of literature, theory and case evidence and the associated practical implications. Students may also undertake a research dissertation, which integrates and further develops knowledge and skills acquired throughout the programme. Those students on the degree programme with a year in business will undertake a continuous period of work experience during which they are provided with opportunities for integration of theory and practice.

For students first registered in or after September 2015 Version: 6.0 Dated: 07.09.2015 This document provides a summary of the main features of the programme(s), and of the outcomes which a student might reasonably be expected to achieve if full advantage is taken of the learning opportunities provided. Further information is contained in the College prospectus, the College Regulations and in various handbooks issued to students upon arrival. Whilst Royal Holloway keeps all its information for prospective applicants and students under review, programmes and the availability of individual courses are necessarily subject to change at any time, and prospective applicants are therefore advised to seek confirmation of any factors which might affect their decision to follow a specific programme. In turn, Royal Holloway will inform applicants and students as soon as is practicable of any substantial changes which might affect their studies.

Learning outcomes Teaching, learning and assessment Details of the programme structure(s) Progression and award requirements Student support and guidance Admission requirements Further learning and career opportunities Indicators of quality and standards List of programmes, with details of awards, degree titles, accreditation and teaching arrangements Learning outcomes Teaching and learning in the programme are closely informed by research undertaken in the School. In general terms,





the programme provides opportunities for students to develop and demonstrate the following learning outcomes:

Knowledge and understanding of:

 the discipline of Management as pursued by the School, with an emphasis on the historical, political, cultural, ethical and institutional forces shaping modern business;

 the principal interdisciplinary and comparative perspectives that inform Management theory and practice;

 the organisation, its functions, and the context of business leading to a multifaceted appreciation of the Management discipline;

 how organisations develop and maintain competitive advantage within a changing business environment influenced by economic, political, social, and cultural factors;

 key managerial functions such as information systems, marketing, human resource management, accounting, operations management;

 the strategic and operational processes by which management plans and coordinates the use of resources with the general objective of securing or maintaining competitive advantage;

 the emergence of the global economy and multinational firms, using various theoretical approaches (economic management, international relations and geo-political);

 the principles of business statistical calculations and assessment of the results;

 the application of management theory to practical situations, the managerial skills needed in business, and how to deal with practical work-based situations.

Skills and other attributes  capacity to critically apply methodologies in the analysis of management;

 ability to evaluate theory, research and practice within management;

 ability to analyse real-life problems facing actual businesses and evaluate the effectiveness and limitations of different management attempts to solve them;

 effective oral and written communication, including presentation skills;**  presentation skills;†*  personal skills such as effective listening, negotiating and persuasion;*  teamworking;*  skills in information technology, numeracy, and research.* Back to top Transferable skills * For students first registered in or after September 2015 Version: 6.0 Dated: 07.09.2015 Teaching, learning and assessment Teaching is through a number of means depending on the specific topic or course, but is mostly by lectures, seminars and workshops. Lectures normally cover the essential subject matter, literature review, and provide summaries of the key debates. Seminars or workshops supplement lectures, or allow students the opportunity to practise or acquire a technical or personal skill. They employ a range of approaches, including case studies, discussion, role-plays, one-to-one interactions, question and answer sessions, information technology, or computer-based training. Considerable emphasis is placed on personal study and library work, often in preparation for seminars, workshops and lectures, and courses provide guided reading and indicative bibliography.

Assessment methods vary in accordance with the aims and outcomes of a specific topic or course, but frequently involve a combination of in-course assessment and formal end of year written examinations. In addition group and individual projects, in-course tests, group and individual presentations, reports, quantitative analysis, and essays are all used at some point during the programmes. For all assessments except in-course tests, students receive either written or oral feedback.

At stage one, teaching, learning and assessment focus on achievement of foundation knowledge and skills for advanced study; at stage two there is an even greater emphasis on independent learning and development of conceptual capabilities and advanced knowledge; and stage three allows students to deepen their specialist knowledge, adopt more critical and evaluative approaches and carry out independent research. Full details of the assessments for individual courses can be obtained from the School.
