For the student we have a wealth of support materials
Five minutes on…
We provide open access to a series of short summaries under the heading ‘Five minutes on.’
They are short, hopefully sharp, summaries providing a subject overview/introduction.
They may not answer all your questions but we hope you will find them helpful, provocative, stimulating and informative.
If you want to know more and have a couple of hours to invest, you will find the “take a deeper dive” learning units very useful.
They include the latest thinking from academics and writers on management.
Most of them are about 25 pages in length.
One learning unit from each theme is free.
For the rest we charge a small fee to cover the costs of managing this site.
