The Managing 2: Marketing and Finance programme offered by The Open University UK takes a very practice-based approach to studying management concepts focusing on your own role. You can study this module on its own or start your OU management studies with it. However, you may find this module easier to engage with if you have studied B628 first.
This module is offered with online tuition only. If you wish to study this module outside the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland you will need to register on this online version. Otherwise you may register for a combination of face-to-face and online tuition by choosing Managing 2: marketing and finance (B629).
You will have a tutor who will help you with the study material and study activities. You can ask the tutor for help and advice. The tutor will also mark and comment on your assignments. If you are new to the OU, you will find that your tutor will be particularly concerned to help you with your study methods.
Other tutor support will be delivered primarily online as you study. In addition, online tutorials will be offered depending on the version of the module for which you register. These tutorials are not compulsory but you are strongly encouraged to participate.Vocational relevance
The teaching and learning strategy of Managing 2: marketing and finance is problem-based. Through this approach, the module aims to develop the skills an effective manager needs: such as analysis, constructing sound arguments, critical and reflective thinking, problem identification and problem solving, active listening and communication, sourcing and presenting information, and report writing. Many of these are the same learning skills that any university-level learner requires and will help to equip you for study at postgraduate level.
