kevään kurssit

Teksti: Jenni Ukkonen

Nyt kun oon pari viikkoa ehtinyt käydä kevään kursseja ja selvillä siis on mitä kursseja seuraavat kolme kuukautta suoritan, voisin niistä täälläkin taas kertoa. Kerron nyt alkuun ihan vaan ne itse kurssit kun niistä on kyselty enemmän, sekä niiden lyhyet kuvaukset, mutta kursseilla suoritettavista tehtävistä ja arvosanojen muodostumisesta kerron vasta myöhemmin – todennäköisesti siinä vaiheessa kun kurssit on jo puolessa välissä tai lopuillaan ja tehtävät edes osittain tehty 🙂

Kevät mulla poikkeaa syksystä siten että suoritan nyt vähän epätavallisesti viisi modulea neljän sijaan – tämä johtuen siitä kun jätin sen journalismin ja vaihdoin PR:ään. Mutta onneksi tuleva kesä tsemppaa opiskelemaan ahkerasti jotta pääsee sitten ansaitusti lomailemaan 🙂

Ja kursseina mulla on…

Global Challenges for Business, Management and Leadership
The module aims to provide students with an understanding of the increasing complexity of business management and leadership in the 21st century. The module has been designed in conjunction with the other first semester certificate modules to help students identify with and fully comprehend the changing state of current management situations. It is structured to support an integrated, trans-module/cross-curricular introduction to managing complexity and challenge.

Understanding Information
The module will provide an introduction to spreadsheet packages for the purpose of data analysis, the use of a spreadsheet package to manipulate databases, types of data; primary secondary, quantitative and qualitative, the process of transforming data into information, data reliability and validity. The module also proves introduction to data collection, collation and presentation, methods of sampling and questionnaire design, summarising quantitative and qualitative data; graphical and numerical summaries and descriptive statistics; measure of centre and spread.

Introduction to Globalisation
This course aims to introduce you to some of the key questions surrounding the process of the ‘globalisation’ which we have been made aware of by the revolution in mass interpersonal communications over the last 15 years. This particular communications revolution is often confused with ‘globalisation’, whilst the term ‘globalisation’ has itself come to mean all things to all persons. Here we shall study the key characteristics of specifically global phenomena.

The Fashion System
The module deconstructs the fashion system to its micro components, explores such components and presents how these components are interrelated and how the system may vary in different national models. It builds upon MK1503N The Fashion Industry and by introducing students to such components it further explores how such components may interact with fashion marketing processes at operational levels.

Operations Management
This is a core module for Business Operations Management. It will concentrate on those areas of operations management which can be applied in general terms to almost all business activities. Issues such as the role of the operations manager, customer service, just-in-time philosophy and the achievement of overall efficiency and effectiveness in business operations, business design, capacity and enterprise resource planning, quality management and modern technology, which have become areas of concern in all organisations and will be discussed. Illustrative examples will be drawn from both manufacturing, services and the public sectors.

Miltä kuulostaa? Voin kertoa että ylimääräinen module tulee kyllä tuomaan lisäkiirettä arkeen, mutta toivottavasti pääsen näistäkin kunnialla läpi ja kohti kakkosvuotta 🙂
