This is a fully comprehensive introduction to the skills, knowledge, understanding and expertise of management; and so in this context, the range of topics covered in this module is deliberately broad. The intention is to provide a substantial yet wide-ranging initial introduction to the overall field of management. That base then serves as a foundation upon which your studies in this area may be directed. This scope is approached via five overarching areas of study:
- a full introduction to what management is and is not;
- a broad coverage of the overall field of management knowledge, skills and expertise;
- a substantial introduction to the crucial area of expertise of critical thinking, evaluation and analysis, leading to the formation of a sound judgemental faculty
- a general familiarity and understanding of management priorities and issues, which should provide you with a foundation on which to base your future studies of more detailed areas of management
- a specific understanding of the foundations of leadership and managerial professional practice, with particular reference to: the UCL Connected Curriculum; and the stated priority of the UCL School of Management: creating disruptive research and entrepreneurial leaders for the complex, interconnected world of the future.
