The small class sizes mean a higher level of interaction between the tutors and students, which I have personally found to increase the level of discussion on the concepts and topics being covered.

This module aims to teach students about the impact of business culture on competition. It comprises an interdisciplinary approach, with perspectives from strategic management, human resource management, general social sciences and the humanities. It aims to introduce the business culture concepts at both macro and micro levels and gives students some first-hand experience in understanding the values of nations, industries and firms.
