Business Management In Education (Module)

Module description

This module is designed to provide participants with practical business management skills that are applicable across all education sectors. Drawing on best practice from commercial settings the module will allow you to develop your capabilities across a range of management functions, from strategic planning to marketing, from team building to resource management. Today these skills are as relevant to state schools as they are to the private /profit-making sector, as relevant to the primary school as the university. Whether you plan to set up your own school or want to be able to develop viable plans for a new venture in an existing institution, this module will give you the skills you need. The focus of the module is practical rather than literature-based and the assignment provides the opportunity to develop your own strategic business/marketing plan for your own educational business venture.
