Overview

Artificial Intelligence is increasingly applied to jobs that are traditionally done by humans. This degree is designed to equip you with the skills and knowledge needed to manage the complexity that comes from a more artificial intelligence driven world.

This pathway includes two artificial intelligence specialist modules and your project will also be in this field. There will be no reference to artificial intelligence on your degree certificate, however your transcript will show all the modules you took and the grades you received. 

The course consists of three distinct but interconnected stages:

Certificate - The modern enterprise and business environment – how does it work?

The Certificate phase will develop a resource-based view of the business enterprise and examine how value is created, including the impact of the wider business environment on the enterprise’s value creation activities.

Diploma - Preparing for tomorrow – what needs to change?

In the Diploma stage the focus shifts to considering the manager’s role in the development of an enterprise in response to the internal and external context, to create sustainable value.

Masters – Management in action – bringing about change

The Masters phase of the programme will focus more specifically on AI technologies, their use in business management and their impact on the company and society. The emphasis will be on exploring, critically evaluating and applying a range of sector specific models and concepts within a practice setting.

The course will also support you in clarifying and developing your career goals and will encourage reflection on how they might be met.

In more detail...

You will have the opportunity to develop a holistic view of how businesses operate, including the impact of the external environment. You will look at an organisation from a different perspective: the organisation as a learning entity made up of individuals, as a combination of inter-related processes focused on adding value, and as a financial entity focused on creating monetary returns.

You will focus on exploring the role of a manager as a strategic leader and the role managers play in organisations to develop and adapt to environment changes. As part of this course, you will be required to develop approaches and solutions to work-based problems, which are both innovative and creative, and to expand on your entrepreneurial abilities in your professional practice.

This course will also focus on exploring and developing sector and role specific knowledge to support your career growth and future aspirations. It aims to enable you to gain a critical awareness of the latest problems, current and emerging trends in artificial intelligence for business management. You will explore how AI technology can be used to create revenue and generate new business opportunities, with the aim of helping you become a leader in the modern business world.

The course is primarily designed to be studied part-time by students currently in employment.

For each module, we will provide engaging video lectures and a variety of interactive content and activities. The online contact between lecturers and colleagues aims to help you stay motivated and committed to learning.

Each module runs with 15 credits across an academic semester of 13 weeks, requiring an estimated 10-15 hours of study time per week, with the flexibility to study one to two modules per academic semester.

The underlying focus is on developing your ability to think critically and strategically and to enable you to develop solutions to complex problems within an ever changing and ambiguous business environment. You can benefit from the innovative and interactive content and activities provided on our online platform FutureLearn. This opens up opportunities to participate in projects with students from around the world. The online contact between you, your lecturers and fellow students will help you stay motivated and committed to learning.

One of the key aims of the programme is to provide you with experiences of real-life organisations. You will be exposed to real-life case studies, simulations and engaging guest speakers from industry, who will bring both contemporary and theoretical concepts to life by sharing their expertise and experiences of developing strategy, managing change and growth in their organisations.

During your studies you will have access to professional management coaches to help you develop and enhance your skills and capabilities, and identify your career goals.

Mixed assessment modes offer students a range of opportunities to demonstrate their achievement of learning outcomes. You will be assessed through a combination of coursework assessments, business plans and activities, all completed online.

As part of the degree, you will initiate and lead a change project within a practice setting. In order to achieve this successfully, you will be required to apply the knowledge and demonstrate the strategic thought and leadership capabilities which are core to the course.

On successful completion of the Certificate stage (60 credits) students will be eligible for a Postgraduate Certificate in Business Administration.

On successful completion of the Diploma stage (120 credits) students will be eligible for a Postgraduate Diploma in Business Administration.

  • An appreciation of the social, political, economic and environmental impact of an enterprise and the need to develop ethical and responsible management practices 
  • The ability to act in a culturally sensitive manner towards all of an enterprise's stakeholders, through having an understanding of the interconnected global nature of the business.
