Our research informs our teaching portfolio. Our group has contributed to the development of an innovative and successful Masters in Innovation, Creativity and Leadership at City, University of London, and our members teach a variety of courses across educational levels on creativity, design thinking, digital technologies and business innovation. Our pedagogic research has informed a highly innovative approach to management learning which we have applied across our undergraduate and postgraduate degrees. Our teaching of the practice of management on both the BSc courses in Management and in Business Studies, and on the MSc in Management, prepares students to deal with an uncertain and fast-changing business environment by setting students a range of challenges. We have developed a large-scale business simulation, Millcaster Global Industries, within which first year undergraduates address issues characterised by the term VUCA (volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity).
Examples of our teaching include:
- Digital Technologies and Business Innovation - core module for the Cass Full Time MBA and Executive MBAs programmes
- Digital Innovation and Entrepreneurship pathway (in collaboration with Cass’ Entrepreneurship and Innovation Group) within the Bachelor degree in Business Management (from 2018-2019)
- Technologies in Creativity and Innovation - core module for the Masters in Innovation Creativity and Leadership run by the Centre for Creativity in Professional Practice
- Business Economics – core module for Cass Executive MBAs programme examining the economics underlying platform-based competition.
- Practice of Management and Management of Business Functions – two modules which form the core of the first year of the BSc Management
- Virtual Organisation – elective module for final year undergraduates which addresses the intersection between technological innovation and changing patterns of work
