The course provides a brief introduction to risk, safety management, economics, organisations, management accounting, human resource management, contract/competition law and supply chain management. It also covers key professional skills such as time management, communication, teamwork and presentation of data. It concludes with a discussion of how one might go about setting a project up for success which students should find useful when embarking on individual and group projects at levels 4 and 5
