How the module develops Business Readiness 
I am developing my knowledge to understand business organisations in their international environments. I am appreciating different types of international organisations and starting to appreciate the different strategies they adopt in order to be successful in complex environments. I am learning the techniques managers can use to analyse business strategies and have had the opportunity to apply at least one technique to a case study scenario. I am developing my research skills using a range of library sources. Through the formative assessment I am learning how to prepare a simple plan for a team assignment. Through the summative assessment I have developed my ability to work as a team, to communicate effectively and present a polished business presentation to an audience.
