This introductory course will guide your discovery of how businesses function and interact with the wider socio-economic environment.
Tensions brought about by competition for resources, the legal and moral frameworks for business activity, and the complexities of knowledge management in organisations will present you with core challenges in the future. Together we’ll explore these dimensions alongside an assessment of the specific business impact of global governance, resource depletion, demographic change, and the power of repeated technology and communications revolutions.
Improving your core knowledge of these new contexts for business activity will ensure you’re better placed to embark upon the next phase of your learning. For those currently in business it gives the chance to reflect, contribute to discussion, and gain recognition for experience.
Questioning anew the contexts for future commercial and organisational success is imperative; this is the purpose of Discovering Business in Society.
Your learning will be guided by senior staff from the EQUIS-accredited University of Exeter Business School. Passing the exam will lead to exemption from the ACCA paper F1, Accountant in Business.
