Information on Electives

The elective outline provides further information on the electives we have on offer. I am sure you will find the matrix on page 2 useful as this shows which semester the electives run, and in which centres.

A pre-requisite of Advanced Strategic Management (ASM) is that you have taken the Global Strategic Management course. For anyone that did not take this course, you will be unable to take ASM. Please also note that The Reflective Manager has had a recent name change to The Practising Manager (TPM). As you have already taken this as a core, you will be unable to take this as an additional elective.

July 2016
We still have availability on the following electives for the July 2016 semester:

In addition, we would also like to give you the option of studying a core on the Global Programme – Managerial Economics. This may be of particular interest to anyone that enjoyed the Economics of Strategy course. This option is only available for the July 2016 semester and the available workshop dates for this course are:

These courses will go live on Blackboard on 4th July, with the semester ending on 31st December 2016. If you would be interested in studying any of these courses in the July 2016 semester, then please get in touch with Emily Marner ( asap, who will be able to make the necessary arrangements. Please note workshop availability is subject to change, so the sooner you get in touch the more likely we will be able to reserve a place for you.

In addition to the Entrepreneurship and Innovation Management and Risk Management electives, the Brazil centre will also be holding a ‘Brazil Economy and Business in Practice tour’ from 13th – 15th September which you are also welcome to register for.
