(6) MGSM890 Operations Management
Lecturer: Mehrdokht (Medo) Pournader

The unit will also examine the strategic contribution that operations management can make to the organisation’s long-term success. After placing the activities required of the operations manager into a conceptual framework, the practical issues and difficulties in making operations decisions are examined. Included are the areas of product design conversion processes for making goods and services, planning and control, the impact of e-commerce on operations, supply chain management, and improvement activities.
(7) MGSM870 Organisational Behaviour
Lecturer: Associate Professor Paul Nesbit
Organisational Behaviour (OB) is a multi‐disciplinary field that uses insights from psychology, anthropology, philosophy and sociology to study human behaviour in organisational settings. In this unit, students critically examine insights into human behaviour to better manage and improve organisational performance and capability, with an emphasis on ethical management and a global mindset.
The unit covers the micro perspectives of OB (such as individual foundations, perceptions, attitudes and motivation); mezzo (such as groups, communication and team dynamics); and macro (such as organisational culture, change, power and leadership), as well as ethics and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).
(8) MGSM850 Strategic Frameworks
Lecturer: Dr Marc Jones
This unit analyses the theories behind, and practical applications of, strategic frameworks used to achieve sustainable competitive advantage. You will learn why organisations change their strategic direction, the importance of those changes, and the process that leads to such key decisions. Importantly, there are no “universal solutions, only differing perspectives which can help you make competitively sustainable strategic decisions.
(9) MGSM860 Strategic Management
Lecturer: Randal Tame
Strategic Management is the capstone unit that builds on MGSM850 and disciplines studied in other MGSM units. The purpose of this unit is to help you develop your own viewpoint on formulating and implementing corporate strategy and on the roles and tasks of corporate leaders. You will learn how to think and act as a leader, and as an adviser, to help achieve and maintain the competitive advantage of an organisation.
(10) MGSM880 Foundations of Management Thought
Lecturer: Robert Spillane
This unit surveys the evolution of Western thought from major philosophical perspectives (from Homer to Sartre) and their relevance for management. What is important about a philosophical perspective is not what it explains, but what it assumes. Three assumptions ground the unit:
a) managing is essentially a philosophical activity because human existence is interpreted through diverse perspectives;
b) management training needs to be combined with management education. To train is to drill and subordinate individuals to routines, standards and practices. To educate is to liberate a person’s intellectual, moral and aesthetic powers.
c) managers and leaders need to have the critical skills to debate, reflect, and engage in dialogue across different functional disciplines, stakeholders and cultures in organisational contexts.

MGSM849 Raising Capital in Global Markets
Lecturer: Professor Andrew Lepone
This unit is concerned with the way in which capital is raised by corporations in the world’s major markets. This includes a detailed examination of IPO’s and equity offerings which can be undertaken. The rules and regulations surrounding the issue of various forms of capital will be examined. The three largest equities markets in each of the Asian, European and American time-zones will be examined, namely HK, UK and USA capital markets.
This unit is also concerned with the processes which turn orders into trades in securities markets, and the forces which mould and affect both order flow and order execution. The unit is an introduction to some fundamental market design and structure ideas. At the end of the unit, students should be able to understand (1) how the international markets for various securities including foreign exchange, swaps, bonds and equities are organised, (2) how trading is conducted in these markets and how these transactions are cleared, (3) how the markets are regulated, if they are supervised and what risks different counterparties face in these markets. The unit aims to equip students to independently analyse international investment and financing alternatives and to estimate expected returns and costs taking into account liquidity risk, price volatility and credit risk.

MGSM884 Negotiation; Theory and Practice
Lecturer: Dr Andrew Heys
Negotiation involves influencing how people think, perceive, feel and behave. We apply these skills in every interaction, whether in the business environment, with our family, or in the world of international politics. The path to improving our negotiation performance involves adopting a mindset conducive for negotiations, learning theories, and developing skill in executing the right behaviour at the right time. This subject will increase students’ awareness of the complex dynamics in human interaction and decision-making. The subject will draw on multiple disciplines in order to provide students with key theories and frameworks for managing that complexity in a wide range of different contexts. Students will also build practical skill in preparing for, conducting, and reviewing negotiations.
