Business failures in the global financial sector, and the subsequent repercussions for a range of different groups, not just shareholders, have put the spotlight on the role of business and the behaviour of managers. Is business just responsible for maximising profit for its owners, or does it have responsibilities to other groups? This raises a number of difficult questions; which groups? responsible for what? And if so, how to discharge these responsibilities?

The Globalisation and Corporate Responsibility module has three main aims:

• To develop critical thought, insight and debate regarding the changing role of business in today’s society.

• To broaden your views on the role of business in society.

• To provide you with the tools, skills and knowledge to manage responsibly.

The nature of the topic is constantly changing and evolving; therefore the module will be

subject to continual refinement according to developments in industry, government and academia. Specific issues to be covered will include:

• Definitions of Corporate Responsibility

• The Role of Business and Society

• Theories of Corporate Responsibility

• Ethics Theory

• Business Ethics and Corporate Governance

• Areas of Corporate Responsibility

• Firm Level Responses

• Social Accounting

• Criticisms of Corporate Responsibility

• Social Entrepreneurship

The rationale and objective of the module:

The module is designed to be a practical real-world, and up-to-date, focus on key risk management aspects within banks. It provides latest knowledge on the field of study and develops relevant skills for students interested in specialising in Banking and Finance. Asset-liability management is the core discipline in banking, and one that must be mastered by every bank worldwide, irrespective of its operating model or product suite. Every bank in the world, bar none, possesses a Treasury desk that is responsible for managing the balance sheet asset-liability mix.

Students will gain understanding of current problems and new insights at the forefront of the bank risk management focuses, including latest approaches being introduced and new regulations being applied. The module includes analysis of underlying theories and related applications within the banking environment.

It is a practitioner-developed and practitioner-orientated programme of structured study that will enable students to develop an advanced-level understanding of the core process of banking, that of asset-liability management (ALM), capital and liquidity risk management. Students will be able to apply market standard techniques to measure ALM risks and formulate strategies for management of these risks at any bank.

Business in an International Perspective is an exploration of an area that is highly topical within the practice of management and scholarly research. The chances are high indeed that, at some time during their career, today’s MSc graduates will work for an international organisation, an international market research company or a multinational enterprise.

The module adopts an analytical and critical perspective to the somewhat prescriptive literature which is associated with this contentious problem area.

The topics addressed in this module will include:

• International business and international trade theory

• Cultural factors and their impact on business, including human resource management

• Risk analysis, country risk and the consequences for trade and investment

• Government-business relations and market regulation

• International organisations and international business: GATT/WTO and multilateral trade issues

• The world financial environment and the multinational finance function: foreign exchange markets, business implications of exchange rate changes

• Corporate social responsibility and the impact of international business on various stakeholders

Through these topics we will examine why and how financial firms should be regulated.
