Brief description

The module consists of a total of eight units designed to develop the subject in a way that moves from the overall international and national financial contexts to the evaluation of service provision, in terms of Value For Money and Total Quality Management. The units will include participating study with opportunities to respond within the text and to undertake some self-assessment. Units will include supplementary reading, but will also anticipate current awareness reading by students of at least one quality daily newspaper supplemented by journals.
