What you will be studying
- Cyber Security & UX Design
This module examines research challenges in the areas of usable security through a review of past and recent research in usable cybersecurity. You will explore, in detail, the nature of usability and the user experience as it applies to cybersecurity, the impact of user psychology, user models, usage contents and usability evaluation techniques. After establishing this important contextual understanding, you will review key challenges within usable cybersecurity such as cyber-security awareness and training. You will focus on one of these challenges within your assessed work.
- Managing data & Competitive Advantages
In this module, you will investigate techniques that organisations use for performing simple analysis of data for a variety of business applications. You will develop an understanding of the types of data used in business, the differences between structured and unstructured data and how tools can be used to represent and analyse different types of data, including big data, in various contexts.
- Organisational Behaviour and Cultural Change
Organisational Behaviour is the study of human behaviour in organisational settings, exploring the interface between human behaviour and the organisation, and the organisation itself. A variety of factors influence organisational behaviour, including structure, policies, processes and management. You will gain knowledge of how companies can manage and lead change effectively, and by understanding organisational behaviour you will support your personal development and ability to set the standard for accepting, negotiating, and implementing change.
- Global Cooperate Social Responsibility & Ethics
This module develops critical insights into corporate social and environmental responsibility. Corporations have a clear ability to influence and shape the environment, our choices as consumers, the rules of government and the quality of our working lives. The module examines contemporary themes using case studies to illustrate the complex relationship between business and society and the alternative frameworks through which the subject can be considered. It explores the issues of accountability and regulation and considers alternative forms of organising such as co-operatives and partnerships in order to question whether these structures enable organisations to engage with the broader aims of corporate social and environmental responsibility.
- Marketing in a Digitally Connected World
Against a backdrop of new technologies and a proliferation of fast-developing marketing channels, effective marketing requires an understanding and ability to design complex solutions that engage effectively with the customer journey. This module explores current marketing theory and how offline and online technologies interact with customers through a myriad of touchpoints. Customers are considered from a range of market perspectives and the application of holistic marketing approaches as a means of supporting ‘needs satisfaction’ and attaining customer loyalty is explored.
