Unit 26: Supply Chain Management

Unit 35: Developing Individuals, Teams and Organisations

organisations in which they work. They will also gain an awareness of the context in which learning takes place and how development needs are linked to learning interventions aimed at supporting an organisation’s strategy

Unit 41: Brand Management

The unit is designed and structured to give you an end-to-end understanding of brand management.

Unit 38: Customer Value Management

This unit is designed to enhance your knowledge and understanding of why it is important for marketers to enhance and manage the value of the customer interactions. You will learn the underpinning theories and frameworks, and will also be expected to relate these to real-world examples, including their own personal experiences.

Unit 18: Global Business Environment

The aim of this unit is to explore the wider position some organisations have in the global environment. You will appreciate the complexities of operating in a global environment, and this will enable them to offer greater breadth and depth to an organisation’s current or aspirational global presence.

Unit 11: Research Project

This unit is assessed by a Pearson-set assignment. You will choose your own project based on a theme provided by Pearson (this will change annually). The project must be related to your specialist pathway of study. This will enable you to explore and examine a relevant and current topical aspect of business in the context of the business environment and their chosen specialist pathway.
