This module will use already existing (and currently non-assessed) activities and workshops run for MSc Management and MBA level students as points of reference from which such students can, i) base two written reports covering the subject of managerial skills; as well as ii) critically evaluate the managerial skills ability of themselves and others in their team(s). By so doing (and, along with the research involved), students' awareness and knowledge of the subject area will be greatly enhanced.
To bring together the knowledge and practical experience acquired (regarding the managerial skills ability of individual students and their 'teams') from the various 'Management Skills' events (such as communication workshops, leadership weekends and team-building activities) held during the first two semesters of both the MSc management and MBA programmes.

To use the professional and academic literature to extend students' knowledge and add to the depth of coverage of this subject area during the writing of the reports.
