Award in Professional Skills

This course provides students with foundational undergraduate skills designed for both undergraduate studies in business, and a career that uses foundational business skills.

The course focusses on helping students to reflect both theoretically and practically on their own strengths and weaknesses in the context of defining career objectives; it provides an introduction to the methods and tools for job and career-searching, and it provides both training in effectively communicating during the recruitment processes, and with multidisciplinary teams in a business context.

During the course of the course, students are exposed to business operations and their related careers, including computer programming, IT, data analysis, and business communications. Students are exposed to practical case studies with problem-based assignments.

The course encourages a scientific approach to uncertainty in business contexts, with students trained to devise experiments by identifying business hypotheses within narrow market segments, constructing tests to validate hypotheses, and iteratively responding to failures and successes of those tested hypotheses.

All mandatory reading materials will be provided to students. No additional purchases are required.
