The multidisciplinary nature of management is reflected in this module. It examines the conceptual frameworks and techniques of Marketing and Organisational Behaviour which are complementary to one another in reflecting the organisation's relation to its internal and external environment. In doing so, the module will develop an understanding of the growth of Marketing and its role in management, give consideration to how the behaviour of individuals and groups in organisations may be understood and managed and also show how managers might better appreciate the markets and market forces they are committed to dealing with.
