    Masters level programs require students to have highly developed skills in communication, analysis, teamwork, and negotiation. These skills are essential for managers when dealing with vaguely defined problems where the relevant information is ambiguous or incomplete.

    This unit is designed to ensure students have a strong foundation in communication skills and students will be required to use a variety of writing styles, sometimes for a technical audience, sometimes for a lay audience. Students will also be required to develop their presentation and negotiation skills, as well their critical thinking skills through analyzing and applying complex material. Finally, this unit will introduce students to a range of statistical techniques often used by managers when solving problems.

    Learning Outcomes

    On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to demonstrate they have strong foundations in the following areas:

    1. Communication - students will be able to present information and express their opinions effectively within and across cultural boundaries;

    2. Analysis - students will be able to identify what information they need, what information is missing and where to locate that information. They will also be able to evaluate the quality and limitations of information they collect and analyze;

    3. Problem solving - students will be able to apply problems-solving processes in novel situations. They will also develop the skills to deal with vaguely defined problems and incomplete information sets; and

    4. Working independently and with others - students will be able to plan their own work and, when appropriate, develop their team-building skills.
