Summary

 

Business Economics - BS5002

Aims

Central to this module is an exploration of both micro- and macro-economics. In relation to microeconomics, the aim is to give you a better understanding of how markets operate with a particular application to business decision-making. The module also aims to analyse the macroeconomic backdrop against which businesses and government operate. Our aim is to create an understanding of central issues in monetary policy as well as analyse how the decisions of firms and consumers interact to generate the aggregate outcomes that macroeconomists focus on: total output (GDP), employment, inflation, and the balance of payments.

Economics and Strategy for Innovation - BS1703

Aims

Technological change is a major challenge for firms that demands careful strategic planning in order to ensure the firm successfully negotiates the shifting technology landscape in which it operates. In order to sustain a competitive advantage, firms must also drive change themselves through the effective management of innovation.  In this module, we will explore how firms create, manage, protect and capture value from technological innovations. There are a variety of tools and processes which can help firms benefit from their innovative endeavours, which will be discussed in the module. However, the management of innovation is inherently complex, and not every firm succeeds. The module will also highlight several reasons why some firms prosper from innovation, whereas others don’t.  In addition, the policy landscape faced by firms is complex and we shall explore this and try to get some insights into the motivation of policy-makers.
