O&IM Group staff contribute to teaching within Aston Business School at all levels: undergraduate, postgraduate, doctoral research methods and management development.
Major contributions to the School's undergraduate programmes are on the BSc Business and Management (BAM), BSc International Business and Management (IBAM), BSc Accounting for Management (AFM), BSc International Business and Economics (IBE) and the BSc Business Computing and IT. However, our work on the Common First Year and other core modules in Years 2 and 4 means that we come into contact with all of the School's undergraduate students. In the Common First Year, we deliver modules such as Information Technology for Business, Principles of Operation Management and Quantitative Techniques. In Year 2, we are responsible for managing the Business Game as well as offering modules such as Databases, Management Science, Doing e-Business and Operations Management. In Year 4, we offer modules such as e-Business Systems Development, Data Envelopment Analysis, Effective Management Consultancy and Advanced Business Computing.
As well as contributing to broad-based programmes such as the Aston MBA, the MSc in Business Studies and the MSc in Internation Business, O&IM staff teach a range of specialised option modules on programmes such as the MSc in Operational Research and Performance Management and a number of new programmes including MSc Information Systems & Business Analysis (ISBA), MSc Business & Marketing Analytics, MSc Business Analytics & Information Systems Management and MSc Enterprise Systems & Business Analytics.
O&IM Management Development teaching consists of tailored courses for specific clients, which have recently included Jaguar, Land-Rover, Dstl and NEC.
