Essential Study and Employment Skills for Business and Management Students (Paperback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


Essential Study and Employment Skills for Business and Management Students is a comprehensive, one-stop guide to the skills needed to bring you success, both throughout university and in your future career.

Covering all the core areas associated with business and management degrees, this text offers a unique focus on employability to guide your development into a future employee who can lead but who is also a team player, who is flexible and creative, well-versed in problem-solving skills, and who is self-aware and resilient under pressure - all skills that employers are looking for in today's business world.

Now in its fourth edition, a new chapter on wellbeing makes this text more relevant than ever. This chapter guides your development of healthy mental and physical resilience, which are needed both at university and in the world of work. The importance of critical reflection is also emphasized by a new 'Stop and Reflect' feature, which acts as a checkpoint to help you absorb the content on a more personal and practical level.

Packed with individual and group activities and 'skills examples', as well as the real insights into the professional world offered by the 'practitioner viewpoints', the focus of this text is firmly on active experimentation and thoughtful, guided reflection. Essential Study and Employment Skills for Business and Management Students remains unparalleled as a resource to support, encourage, and develop business and management students throughout their time at university and beyond.

An exciting development for this new edition, the enhanced e-book offers an even more flexible and engaging way to learn:
